The American Humane Association: An Organization You Should Know

We are so excited to be partnering with the American Humane Association to help improve the care and well-being of dogs and the relationship between people and their pets. When you buy Happy Dog: Caring For Your Dog's Body, Mind and Spirit though our website, Barker and Meowsky will donate $1 per book to American Humane.

American Humane is the only national organization dedicated to protecting both children and animals. Its mission is to create a more humane and compassionate world by ending abuse and neglect of children and animals. To that end, American Humane advocates for legislation to protect children and animals, raises public awareness, develops and provides training programs to child- and animal-welfare professionals and community members, and performs direct services, such as animal emergency services and animal-assisted therapy.

For decades, American Humane has celebrated and promoted the special bond between people and animals, including establishing the annual observance of Be Kind to Animals Week® in 1915. American Humane helps people care for their dogs (and other pets) and spreads a message of compassion.

Headquartered in Denver, American Humane raises awareness about The Link® between violence to people and violence to animals, as well as the benefits derived from the human-animal bond. American Humane’s office in Los Angeles is the authority behind the “No Animals Were Harmed”® end-credit disclaimer on film and TV productions, and American Humane’s office in Washington, D.C. is an advocate for child and animal protection at the federal and state levels. In addition, the American Humane® Certified farm animal program is the nation’s original independent certification and labeling program for humanely raised food.

Check out American Humane's website, there's so much to see and learn!
