Mission: The Animal History Museum is the first museum dedicated to understanding and celebrating the human-animal bond. Its purpose is to serve and educate the public through the creation of a museum in Los Angeles County, California, for the collection, preservation and exploration of the history, culture, science and law relating to the relationship between human and non-human animals; by presenting exhibitions, lectures and other activities that are consistent with, and supportive of, the museum’s educational goals and purpose.
Results: Since our social media launch Jan. 23, 2012, we have a growing online art gallery & library, over 7,000 Facebook and Twitter fans as well as scholars, authors and artists around the world who have offered to help us develop exhibits for our planned brick and mortar space!

The Animal History Museum is an outstanding non-profit! I approached AHM as a volunteer and witnessed first hand in my three months of collaboration, the commitment and leadership of the Executive Director Amy Breyer in promoting the message of compassion towards animals and promoting the Human-Animal bond. This museum is a much needed space in our community because it recognizes the history of animals, thus communicating the need to further animal rights and guard their welfare.

This is an amazing organization. I've enjoyed learning more about the non-profit, and I'm looking forward to future events to spread the word about the importance of the human-animal bond.

The Animal History Museum fills an important void in the non-profit world. There are lots of natural history museums and zoos, but the Animal History Museum is the only museum investigating and celebrating the special bond between humans and animals. It offers cool family-friendly events as well as news regarding cutting-edge research on communication between people and animals of all kinds. Check out its fun Facebook page, including contests!

Animal History Museum is an amazing non-profit organization which created "Understanding and Celebrating the Human-Animal Bond®" idea. As a passionate animal lover, I am impressed with so well thought concept. I think that helping people to better understand and connect with animal kingdom, will benefit all creatures of the world.
I have an honor to present my pet fashion during "Inspire" pan LA Fashion Event. It is great pleasure to participate in such a noble fundraiser. Everyone involved is dedicated, well organized and genuinely interested in helping animals. Executive Director, Amy, is an incredible person who works very hard to achieve best possible results. She has very strong work ethics and charisma which benefits the Museum.

I've experienced Amy and the museum through two fundraising events and I must say that The Animal History Museum as a nonprofit is incredibly organized. It is run well with an exceptionally strong leadership to guide them. I look forward to visiting their museum when it is up and watching their development!

I have been volunteering with the Animal History Museum since the beginning of the summer. I have worked with many different animal organizations, and AHM is truly made up of some of the most dedicated and spirited people I have ever met who are involved with animals. They are dedicated to educating others about the human-animal bond and their events are filled with so many amazing activities and opportunities to have fun. They are all skilled, intelligent, and amazing people and I hope to continue working with them for a very long time!

I have been volunteering here since June 2014 and I can truly say it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made! Amy has been a pleasure to work with and I have learned so much about what it takes to run a non-profit. Working with AHM for their Inspire event has also taught me about fashion, something I never imagined learning about at an animal organization. I cannot wait till the museum has a physical location and finally opens!

It has been a great pleasure volunteering for The Animal History Museum at their pop up gallery events. I have volunteered in many different situations before and AHM has been really great. The people who volunteer with you are wonderfully supportive not just of the cause but of each other.

It has been such a pleasure working with the AHM on Inspire: an L.A. Fashion Week event that promotes cruelty-free couture. Their Executive Director, Amy Breyer, is very thorough, organized and driven to accomplish anything that will benefit the organization. This organization gave me an opportunity to utilize my skills toward the greater good and share in the love of our furry little friends.
