Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Arts & Culture, Natural History & Natural Science Museums

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 12,000 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!

As an animal lover, I was intrigued as soon as I heard this museum was in development and instantly wanted to be a part of it. I started volunteering right away. There are stellar people involved in getting it up and running and I will be so proud and excited to see it open its doors. Everyone I've met that is invested in the project has a great heart, good intentions, and valuable skills to contribute; who better to collaborate with? Can't wait to see the first exhibit.

We've been working with the Animal History Museum as a community partner at Cal State Northridge; two students in my class "Humans and Animals" have been doing research for the Museum's upcoming exhibit. So excited to be a part of this process to bring more consciousness about animals into pubic view!

Spreading goodwill towards those who have no voice is the best way to garner the attention they need. Animal History Museum does just that, through their sometimes thankless hours of dedication!

The Animal History Museum has had a presence at Kidspace Children's Museum a handful of times this year, and it's been a great way for us to broaden our goal of inspiring children to learn about our natural world. Our guests have enjoyed the animal-based activities they've provided, as well as the opportunity to learn more about the animal kingdom. We (and our guests) look forward to having them back!

The Animal History Museum had a booth set up at an after hours event. They provided diverse activities at their booth that they matched with our theme & were flexible. They advertised for us, & we did the same which was a nice way to network with their audience. I appreciated what they offered our guests & were a bonus to the event!

I recently relocated to the Los Angeles area over the summer and am a big animal rights activist and was looking to get involved with an organization in the area. Amy was welcoming and passionate about the organization. There are so many stories in the news of people abusing animals, it is refreshing seeing an organization combating that and have a legal mind-frame to make a difference!

My daughter actually volunteered last year, and after meeting and working with some of the wonderfully creative Staff (*everyone comes from such different backgrounds, it's exhilarating)... I'm HOOKED! What a wonderfully INSPIRED Museum and I can't believe the level of academic and professional people who are already involved and dedicated, much less honing the sincerest interest in all things animal. I've found the Museum Founders to be of the most dedicated, friendly and professional group...and I can't wait to see MORE of what the Animal History Museum will be doing in the FUTURE!
