Wayne Pacelle, the President and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States, joins David to chat about the challenges facing the nation’s largest animal advocacy group. Since taking the position of President and CEO in 2004, Pacelle has aimed to broaden the scope and influence of the humane society even to the point of befriending and working with former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick. Despite his notable run-in with the law on animal cruelty charges, Pacelle believes Vick truly loves and cares for animals and has worked closely with him to teach the dangers of dog fighting. In addition, Pacelle has recently penned his first book, The Bond: Our Kinship with Animals, Our Right to Defend. This book takes an in-depth look at mankind’s bond with animals and how it evolves and changes through a lifetime.
