A fascinating exploration of humanity’s eternal bond with animals, and an urgent call to answer the needs of millions of at-risk creatures.
A landmark work, The Bond is the passionate, insightful, and comprehensive examination of our special connection to all creatures, written by one of America’s most important champions of animal welfare. Wayne Pacelle, the president of the Humane Society of the United States, unveils the deep links of the human-animal bond, as well as the conflicting impulses that have led us to betray this bond through widespread and systemic cruelty to animals.
During his 17 years with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), including seven years as president and CEO, Wayne Pacelle has played a leading role in making HSUS, the nation’s largest animal protection charity, into a dynamic public force and voice for animals.
The HSUS family of organizations is supported by over 11 million people nationwide. Learn more at www.humanesociety.org and join the humane movement!
