Since its founding in 1877, American Humane has been first to serve the interests of animals, pioneering many of the historic firsts in protecting our most vulnerable from cruelty, abuse and neglect. In addition to its new Humane Conservation program, American Humane works to save thousands of animals each year in disasters and cruelty cases, protects some 100,000 animal actors on television and movie production each year, ensures the welfare of some one billion farm animals, and it is leading the way in understanding the human-animal bond and its role in therapy, medicine and society. The organization is a leader in the international humane dialogue and its innovative programs positively touch more than 40,000 lives every minute through direct services – more than any other humane group.
