One of our favorite times of the year is Halloween, but the holiday presents a number of unique challenges for the safety and well-being of our four-legged friends.
Our famed Red Star™ teams rescue & shelter animals in crisis and provide lifesaving tips to protect children, families and communities before, during and after disasters. Our Red Star Animal-Assisted Therapy teams are on the ground year-round providing life-healing comfort for children with cancer, the aged, the infirm, and military families impacted by service. Red Star Training helps protect animals by educating and training people how to provide the best animal care possible.
Our “No Animals Were Harmed®” certification program protects thousands of animal actors a year in the entertainment industry, and the American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards™ inspire and entertain millions while educating them about the power of the human-animal bond. American Humane Association has a team of National Ambassadors, celebrity judges, and supporters who offer their voices and high-profile statuses to champion the causes of the voicelez.
Anchored by two cutting-edge research institutes – the new Animal Welfare Research Institute and the new Children’s Innovation Institute – our humane research and policy solutions bring participatory, preventive science to our communities with robust solutions that prevent abuse and neglect of our most vulnerable.
Our American Humane Certified® farm animal welfare program provides ongoing outreach to farmers in the implementation of the best humane practices for animals. We are developing a Humane Heartland curriculum for children that will teach new generations of America’s children about sustainable practices and how to treat animals humanely.
