Animal Care Internship

Animal Care Interns have the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on animal care experience, knowledge about a variety of species, and exposure to the operations of an animal care center. Interns rotate through our three animal care departments (equine, primate, and wildlife), spending a month in each department.

FFA and the HSUS are merging.

For more than 15 years, the Humane Society of the United States has supported and worked side-by-side with the Fund for Animals to provide lifesaving care for the animals in greatest need. We are now deepening our relationship. Over the coming months, we intend to merge the two organizations, fully integrating the Fund for Animals into the Humane Society of the United States. The Fund for Animals (which operates Black Beauty Ranch, Duchess Sanctuary and Rural Area Veterinary Services) has been an affiliate of the HSUS and part of its family of organizations since 2005.

This merger will make us even more effective in providing care for animals in crisis. All the work for animals at Black Beauty Ranch, Duchess Sanctuary and Rural Area Veterinary Services will continue at the Humane Society of the United States—and your support will continue to be essential.
