We have audited the accompanying statement of financial position of American Humane as of June 30, 2012, and the related statements of activities, functional expenses, and cash flows for the year then ended. These financial statements are the responsibility of American Humane’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. The financial statements of American Humane as of June 30, 2011 were audited by other auditors whose report, dated November 22, 2011, expressed an unqualified opinion on those financial statements.
We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform an audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of American Humane’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.
In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the American Humane as of June 30, 2012, and the changes in its net assets and its cash flows for the year then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
