My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for American Humane Association, Washington, DC, USA
Having worked with AHA for more than 30 years, I have seen it continue its over 130 year mission of helping children and animals. In recent years, the AHA Red Star emergency team has demonstrated the combined mission by both helping recover animals displaced during hurricane, AND helping the children and families have work to do in helping at the same time. Their ongoing work with FEMA and the state agencies in establishing the plans is not seen - but key to our societies increased success. The leadership it has in Hollywood with the "No Animals were Harmed program is another example of excellence.

What is unique about this organization?
The dual role of helping both children and animals. Many organizations server one or the other - and many are narrowly focused. AHA truly represents a mainstream set of values were personal responsibility is important, as is neighbors helping neighbors. Humane care of animals and compassionate behavior of family members and neighbors are all core society values encouraged by AHA. You may be a hunter, farmer,live in a large or small city, like to eat meat, or not - and all have the same core values of compassion.
