I Heart Celebrity Causes Highlights Carrie Underwood's HSUS

As a society we like our celebrities and tend to support the causes they endorse with this status. Our celebrities are those that entertain and inspire us such as those that act in the movies, on television and the stage, our favorite musicians, athletes from our favorite teams or provide national pride representing at the Olympics, the authors of our favorite literary works and those that provide contributions in the world of art. Each month in this new population-we™ (pop-we) series, I Heart Celebrity Causes, a celebrity will be chosen and the cause that they promote will be looked at.

I Heart Celebrity Causes!
This month is the sixth installment of I Heart Celebrity Causes the focus is on Carrie Underwood and The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS). Underwood was the Season Four winner of American Idol and that catapulted a music career that to date has seen her win six Grammy Awards, eight American Music Awards, 11 Academy of Country Music Awards and 16 Billboard Music Awards. She has had 14 songs reach number one on the country charts and has over 14 million in album sales worldwide.

HSUS is one of the charities which Underwood donates heavily to and she has also done several PSA spots for them. The organization is celebrating it's 60th year. In that time it has grown into the largest animal protection organization in the country. They advocate for laws that provide animal protection, campaign for reforms in industries that affect animals, investigate cases of animal cruelty and provide animal rescue and emergency response. The HSUS also cares for animals in clinics, emergency shelters, sanctuaries and wildlife rehabilitation centers.

The organization operates several animal care centers around the country which help thousands of animals needing healing and care. The Cleveland Armory Black Beauty Ranch offers permanent haven for over 1,200 domestic and exotic animals. The South Florida Wildlife Center rescues and rehabilitates over 12,000 animals each year. In Barnstable, Mass., there is the Cape Wildlife Center, which provides emergency care and rehabilitation for wildlife. The Duchess Sanctuary in Oregon provides a refuge on 1,120 acres for horses that were abandoned, neglected or were homeless.

More information on state-by-state efforts can be found at the HSUS website. If you are interested in making an online donation you can give now at HSUS.

Most importantly, Bravo to pop-we I Heart Celebrity Causes--Carrie Underwood--for her HSUS efforts!
