For nearly a century, American Humane Association has worked with our nation's military heroes, helping them on the battlefield and on the home front. In 1916 the U.S. Secretary of War asked American Humane Association to rescue wounded horses on the battlefields of Europe to help the soldiers who depended on them for supply and transport. Following World War II we pioneered the field of animal-assisted therapy to help returning veterans readjust to civilian life, and help children of military families during their parents' deployments.
We continue this proud legacy today with powerful programs to protect those who protect us and help our veterans redeploy their unparalleled experience, skills and know-how here at home to defend the defenseless and build a more humane world for all of us. Here's how American Humane Association is helping our military heroes, their families, and our nation:
