For more than a hundred years American Humane has been first in promoting the welfare and safety of animals and strengthening the bond between animals and humans. These are a group that you know can be relied on when animals are in need of rescue, shelter, protection or security. Through their innovative leadership initiatives – from our “No Animals Were Harmed®” program in Hollywood to broad-based farm and conservation animal welfare certifications, to rapid response rescue and care across the country – American Humane is an organization that as an animal advocate and international best selling author, I'm so proud to support. I caught up with American Humane's Developmental Officer Madison Schaffer today and was updated on all they are doing to help the animals affected by Hurrican Harvey.
In addition, American Humane had third rescue truck awaiting orders to move into position in Louisiana to provide rescue and shelter services as the storm turns eastward. American Humane is anticipating that their role will grow as the flood waters recede as the region will likely need additional help with animal rescue and sheltering.
You can donate by mail, by phone, or by going to their website I know I plan to donate all of September's Book of Barkley book sale proceeds to them and Compassion-First Pet Hospitals is also matching donations dollar-for-dollar up to $50,000 for a limited time so their urgent rescue efforts can go twice as far.
If you already have the book, please consider donating to American Humane directly. Bless you!
