American Humane Association’s mission is to create a more
humane and compassionate world by ending abuse and neglect
of children and animals.
Since 1877, whenever children and animals
have needed protecting, American Humane Association has been there.
We have spearheaded the passage of landmark legislation to
defend the most vulnerable among us. We have instituted
local, state and nation wide initiatives to provide direct
services that promote well-being and prevent cruelty, abuse
and neglect. And we have been at the vanguard of a movement
spanning politics, ideology and generations that has given
voice to the voiceless when they’ve needed it most.
Overview of Our Programs
Red Star Animal Emergency Services™,
established during World War I at the request of the U.S.
government to tend to animals on the battlefields of Europe.
Today, our Red Star national first-responder team deploys at
a moment’s notice to save the animal victims of hurricanes,
floods, wildfires, mass cruelty, and other emergencies.
Animal-assisted therapy, which draws on the
remarkable power of the human-animal bond to help children
and adults heal, learn, and find comfort in times of need.
Leading-edge programs that protect children
from abuse and neglect in communities across America and
provide better outcomes for at-risk children and families
who find themselves in the child protective services system.
We work to help communities prevent abuse, support families,
reengage fathers in the lives of families, and much more.
Innovative research programs including the
Animal Welfare and Research Institute and the Child
Protection Research Center, which explore and develop
science-based solutions to problems affecting the health and
well-being of children and animals.

largest, and fastest-growing independent animal welfare
dedicated to the humane treatment of farm animals.
