Summer is here and things have been heating up for American Humane, our rescue team, and our never-ending work to protect and preserve the animals of the world.
In dangerously flooded Oklahoma, we saved bewildered, terrified animals like Roscoe, a mixed-breed dog whose home disappeared under 12 feet of water, and was found clinging to life in the branches of a tree. We saved 25 dogs abandoned and in terrible condition in a car in Tennessee. Reunited retired military hero dogs with their handlers. Brought many more farm animals under our humane protections. And celebrated the birth of new baby giraffe at one of our American Humane Certified™ zoos – just one of the thousands of success stories we’re helping bring about through our worldwide humane conservation program.
Meanwhile, millions of animal lovers are following the progress of our national campaigns to spotlight the importance of the animals in our lives and those who care for them. Inside these pages you’ll find out who’s leading in the 2019 American Humane Hero Dog Awards® and this year’s American Humane Hero Veterinarian and Hero Veterinary Nurse Awards™. Plus check out our tips for some of the best summer entertainment you can find…feel-good movies you can feel good about seeing because each of them earned our “No Animals Were Harmed ®” seal of approval.
I hope you enjoy our latest stories of compassion, hope, and love, and please follow American Humane on social media for the latest breaking news and inspiring tales from the animal world. On behalf of each and every one of the beautiful creatures we help every day, thank you for your caring and support!
