Wayne Pacelle of HSUS in Vancouver

Wayne Pacelle, president of The Humane Society of the United States, will be in Vancouver on Sunday, June 17 to sign his new book and discuss animal welfare issues. VHS is co-hosting the event with Humane Society International Canada.


WHO: Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of The Humane Society of the United States

WHAT: Discussion, Q&A and book signing

WHERE: Black Bond Books at Book Warehouse, 632 West Broadway, Vancouver

WHEN: Sunday, June 17; 12:00 – 2:00 PM       

Pacelle’s bestselling book The Bond: Our Kinship with Animals, Our Call to Defend Them  has been called revolutionary, uplifting and inspiring. The book takes readers on a journey from America’s great open spaces to its crowded factory farms to the ice floes of Canada where seals are slaughtered. Pacelle illuminates the stark dichotomy we face in an age when animals are more beloved yet more abused than during any period in history.

Pacelle will discuss the themes in the book and issues of local, national and international impact at the Vancouver event.
