“We believe in the Three Rs — reducing the consumption of meat and other
animal-based foods; refining the diet by eating products only from methods of
production, transport, and slaughter that minimize pain and distress; and
replacing meat and other animal-based foods in the diet with plant-based foods.”
There it is in black and white. HSUS is not about pet shelters, unwanted
animal rescues, or adopting a cat. It is about reducing the consumption of meat,
refining the diet, and replacing meat in your diet with plant-based foods.
