In response to numerous inquiries regarding the Humane Society of the United States connections with convicted dogfighter Michael Vick, Nevada Humane Society, Executive Director Bonney Brown released this statement Wednesday:

“Through your letters, calls and e-mails, it is apparent that many people are confusing Nevada Humane Society with the Humane Society of the United States, a completely separate organization that has entered into a relationship with Michael Vick. It is important to us that people understand that the Humane Society of the United States is working with Michael Vick on an anti-dogfighting campaign, not Nevada Humane Society and the two are not affiliated in any way.”

Nevada Humane Society is an independent non-profit organization with no affiliation with the Humane Society of the United States or any other humane society. The Humane Society of the United States does not dictate or influence policies at Nevada Humane Society nor do they provide any funding to the Nevada Humane Society. The Nevada Humane Society and the Humane Society of the United States are different organizations with different approaches to accomplishing our respective missions.

“The Nevada Humane Society relies completely on local donors for funding our lifesaving work for the animals,” Brown said. “It is important to us that our local animals do not suffer because of confusion between these two very separate organizations. The Nevada Humane Society is in no way affiliated or aligned with Michael Vick and we are absolutely outraged and heartbroken by Michael Vick’s actions.”

The Nevada Humane Society is a nonprofit, charitable organization founded in 1932. As a no-kill organization, NHS works to find homes and provide care for homeless animals and to bring people and animals together to make Washoe County a no-kill community.
