Why You Should Leave a Charitable Bequest to American Humane

American Humane was originally formed in the late 1800s. It was the joint effort of delegates in 27 various humane organizations across 10 states. They came together to create the first combined forum that would unite a common mission of stopping inhumane treatment of farm animals. From there, the ideals, vision and overall mission developed and expanded. 

With the help of generous donations and support over the years, American Humane has been able to:

  • Become the country's first official national humane organization 

  • Secure humane treatment for working livestock and animals in transit

  • Add child safety and protection to their agenda

  • Promote humane education in public schools and fight against animal cruelty in classroom demonstrations/experiments

  • Prosecute cases against cruelty to children

  • Spearhead campaigns in effort to pass child labor laws

  • Promote and run programs for therapy dogs  

  • Pass and see signed-into-law The Humane Slaughter Act
