The National Federation of Humane Societies (NFHS) is an HSUS front group that claims to be "a trade federation dedicated to representing and advocating for the interests of local animal welfare organizations, animal shelters, rescue groups and animal care and control agencies." NFHS was co-founded by Wayne Pacelle in 2006 and Steve Putnam, its executive director, was a vice president at HSUS for 10 years before taking his post at NFHS. Additionally, the Washington, DC government’s Department of Consumer & Regulatory Affairs lists HSUS general counsel Roger Kindler at HSUS's Washington, DC address as its official "registered agent" for legal purposes, and NFHS's board members share the same address as HSUS's "L" Street office in DC. Humane Society University, also run by HSUS, lists NFHS as one of its two "affiliates."
