American Humane supports careful assessment and planning on how to properly control wildlife populations so that animal numbers are appropriate for sustaining good health and welfare. In some cases, this would mean controlling the population of a species that can no longer be sustained in an environment of diminished resources, or is threatening to overcome other native species. In other cases, this would mean supporting reproduction of endangered species and working to develop species protection plans for saving a species and allowing for the proper reintroduction of animals into an appropriate habitat.

Last month, retired Military Working Dog Fredy ran into the loving arms of U.S. Marine Corps veteran Nicholas Rice, Fredy’s former handler and forever best friend. Watch the heartwarming moment the two finally saw each other again after seven months apart! #BattleBuddies #Reunion
“There is no safe place.” @AmericanHumane President @RobinGanzert says the organization’s goal is to save as many animals affected by Hurricane Ian as possible, but the effort may take years after such a large-scale devastating storm. https://twitter.com/katiephangshow/status/1576522379173531651

We’ll speak with some of the unsung storm heroes from @AmericanHumane who got these animals to safety.
#HurricaneIan rescue update: Yesterday, we found horses and goats stranded in a barn nearly submerged in water. Our rescue team provided much-needed food and care to reassure them that they had not been left alone in the world. To help animals, visit https://americanhumane.org/hurricane-ian
