So Kaley in the Humane Society commercials I have seen a zillion times says I should become a member to end abuse and cruelty in the world. Help us end abuse and cruelty in the world, she says. That is quite a to do list. 1) End abuse. 2) End cruelty. Apparently the Humane Society has taken on a greater scope of responsibilities than before. Or maybe abuse and cruelty are things that only happen to puppies and kitties. ISIS hates kittens. Boko Haram kicked my dog.
