For more than a hundred years,

American Humane has been first in promoting the welfare and safety of animals and strengthening the bond between animals and people.

American Humane is committed to
ensuring the safety, welfare and well-being of animals.

American Humane is the country’s first national humane organization. Founded in 1877, American Humane has consistently been first to serve in the protection of animals, and is the largest certifier of animal welfare in the world, positively affecting the lives of some one billion animals each year.
Through our innovative leadership initiatives – from our “No Animals Were Harmed” program in Hollywood to broad-based farm and conservation animal welfare certifications, to our programs serving military animals and veterans, to rapid response rescue and care across the country – American Humane sets the gold standard as the most visionary and effective animal welfare organization in the nation.
