Winter 2024 Farm Newsletter

For nearly 150 years, American Humane has given a voice to the voiceless. Now leading efforts in over 40 countries around the globe, American Humane is the “First to Serve®” in helping ensure the safety, welfare, and well-being of animals and promoting the bond between animals and humans.

Thanks to you and all our passionate supporters, in the last year, we were able to:

  • Help ensure one billion farm animals live with humane protections like proper space, food, water, heat, cooling, and lighting.
  • Drive efforts to support farm animal welfare initiatives through science and research and expand third-party oversight on farms and ranches.
  • Save, shelter, and feed more than 250,000 vulnerable animals and provide lifesaving help to animals caught in the Turkey earthquake, Georgia tornadoes, Guam typhoon, and Spokane wildfires.
  • Work to protect 419,000 remarkable animals and endangered species living at American Humane Certified zoos, aquariums, and conservation centers around the world.
  • Launch new and impactful initiatives like the Humane Tourism Certification and the Working Animals Certification programs.
  • Help guide the welfare of 100,000 animals in 1,000 movie productions across the globe.
    support the health and future of veterans and animals by identifying dogs in need of forever homes and training them as life-saving service dogs at no cost for retired warriors struggling to cope with Post-traumatic Stress and Traumatic Brain Injury.

Importantly, American Humane carefully stewards the charitable dollars with which we are entrusted, which is why Charity Navigator awarded us yet again with its coveted top “4-star” rating.

Our bond with you is essential to ensuring animals are treated humanely. The American Humane Farm Animal Program is critical to our mission, and we thank our American Humane Certified farmers, ranchers, and food processors who are committed to providing ethical conditions for their animals.

The human-animal bond has brought us together in this partnership, and we are grateful for all that you do to nurture a humane life for the animals with which we share our world.

With Gratitude,

Robin R. Ganzert, Ph.D.
President and CEO
