On January 14, the HSUS announced their corporate partnership with the Association of Veterinarians for Animal Rights (AVAR). The two will collaborate in establishing the Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association (HSVMA).
This provides the HSUS an even wider platform on which to promote animal rights. Of the 80,000 veterinarians in the U.S., only 11,000 are supporters of the HSUS.
The HSUS is no stranger to conducting their own veterinary practices. They started the Rural Area Veterinary Services (RAVS) in 2002, which operates only in areas where they feel regular veterinarians are under serving.
AVAR which was founded in 1981 represents more than 3,500 veterinarians.
This merger will grant the HSUS more funds, publicity, and supporters, helping them continue to wage war against sportsmen. The partnership will be official on February 1, 2008
