Programs: Join us, and with your help we can build a future where all children and all animals live in a world of compassion, caring, and hope.

American Humane Association positively touches 21,000 lives a minute through direct program services, research, outreach and education. Our mission is to ensure the welfare, wellness and well-being of children and animals, and to unleash the full potential of the bond between humans and animals to the mutual benefit of both. As a recognized leader in professional education, training and advocacy, research and evaluation, American Humane joins with other similarly missioned individuals and organizations to make this vision a reality.
This past year alone in our four major program areas, we have tirelessly pursued the humane mission by:

Ensuring the humane treatment of nearly 1 billion farm animals – an increase of more than 100% in one year

Serving the children of our military families with Operation Purple and victims of tragedies such as the Boston Marathon bombings through our pioneering animal-assisted therapy program

Rescuing and sheltering the animal victims of the devastating EF-5 tornado in Moore, Oklahoma, the Colorado floods, and with other humane organizations 250 dogs in the second-largest dogfighting raid in U.S. history

Conducting groundbreaking humane research to help children with cancer, and national research to save more of the 3-4 million animals euthanized each year by finding new ways to increase pet retention
