Humane Society International

Humane Society International (HSI) and its partner organizations together constitute one of the world’s largest animal protection organizations—backed by 11 million people. It is the only international animal NGO operating sustained, intercontinental campaigns to help all animals – including farm animals, wild animals, animals in laboratories and companion animals.

Working with local animal organizations in countries all over the world, HSI helps to provide direct, hands-on care to animals in need and spread the culture of compassion.

HSI’s is passionate about supporting effective anti-shark finning initiatives, such as the Happy Hearts Love Sharks – Hong Kong wedding contest, because the organisation’s primary focus is animal welfare:  HSI believes that the physical process of shark-finning, whereby a shark’s fins are sliced off whilst it is still alive and its body then discarded at sea to sink and slowly drown, is simply inhumane.
