There’s a new face leading the nation’s top animal rights group after several weeks of uncertainty and controversy.

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) promoted Kitty Block to acting president and CEO, after former president Wayne Pacelle resigned late Friday following an investigation of Pacelle for sexual misconduct.

Last year, Block was promoted to lead HSUS’ global affiliate, Humane Society International. She oversaw all international programs including HIS’s campaign to end the dog meat trade in parts of Asia and reforming policies of killing dogs and cats for their fur in the European Union and U.S.

Block was instrumental in ending horse slaughter for human consumption in the U.S. She is also a licensed attorney.

Block joined HSUS in 1992 as a lead investigator and has used policy and litigation avenues to protect whales and dolphins.

Block is well-connected in Washington and internationally and poised to lead HSUS into a new wave of advocacy. Under her leadership, HSI developed programs and opened offices in Africa, Canada, the European Union, India, Latin America, Mexico, the United Kingdom and Vietnam.

She received a law degree from The George Washington University in 1990 and a bachelor’s degree in communications and philosophy from the University of New Hampshire in 1986.
