This week we’re profiling the American Humane Association. Are they in your Givolio?
The American Humane Association was established in 1877, and its mission is to ensure the welfare, wellness and well-being of animals. They also work to reach the full potential of the bond between humans and animals. Finding the mutual benefits that come from the human-animal relationship is the mission of AHA.
This year the AHA is celebrating two important milestones: the 100th anniversary of the Red Star Rescue team, and 100 years of working in tandem with the U.S. Armed Forces. The Red Star Animal emergency Services program was started after World War I. This program helps protect countless animals each year from natural disasters and abuse.
The American Humane Association helps animals that have been abused or neglected find a second chance at life in a new, supporting home. Every military dog is guaranteed a retirement home in the county that it served. The nonprofit also promotes the endeavor to teach kindness of all living things to the up and coming generations. Since its founding, the AHA has been at the forefront of almost every major advance and legal campaign that is aimed at protecting the most vulnerable among us. These efforts are fired by the desire to make the world a better place for children, animals and all who recognize the core values of caring, compassion and hope.
