You’re going to be hearing a lot about American Humane Association in the months and years ahead.
One big reason: The 113-year-old champion for the protection of children and animals has rightly moved its national headquarters from the quiet of Denver’s southern outskirts to the buzz of Washington D.C’s central business district.
Most Americans don’t realize they see American Humane’s work every day, from its influence behind federal child abuse prevention policy to being the Hollywood-sanctioned organization that adds “No Animals Were Harmed" to a movie's end credits. They pull pets from disaster areas and rescue starving horses from hoarders. They also have a huge head start in the emerging humane labeling marketplace with American Humane Certified, by far the largest and most industry supported farm animal welfare training and auditing program.
With leadership from new CEO and former Pew Charitable Trust executive Robin Ganzert, the now DC-based American Humane Association is on a path to recognition that will no doubt make it one of the nation’s prominent mainstream philanthropic institutions.
Stay tuned and give them your support. They're good people.
