Humane Society Index


Created by The Humane Society of the U.S., this clever and entertaining site discusses many of the aspects of being humane to animals, from eliminating poor pet store conditions to appreciating the suffering of chickens in factory farms. One fascinating feature allows users to see how a particular city rates on its basic 'humane-ness' compared to the national average and to other cities. The site will prove valuable for social studies and language arts classes.
