  • A Message from President and CEO Robin R. Ganzert

    The world can be a stormy place, especially for our children and our animals. Fortunately, one organization has been there for 136 years to protect the most vulnerable among us. American Humane Association, which was the countrysfirst national humane group and pioneered virtually every major advance in childand animal welfare, was there again this past year for our kids, cats, dogs, horses,and other beloved family members. Together, over the past 12 months we havehelped them weather threats from abuse to neglect, abandonment, cruelty andhoarding, the Colorado wildfires to the Colorado movie theater shootings, thecontinuing aftermath of the Japanese earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster, and the devastation of Hurricane Sandy.

    And even as we brought help and hope to so many in times of desperate need, we continued our vital innovative work to build a better and more compassionate future for all of us. We launched the American Humane Association Animal Welfare Research Institute to research new ways to keep our best friends healthy

    and happy, and attack the underlying issues that lead to the euthanization of more than 3 millionadoptable animals each year. American Humane Associations Childrens Innovation Institute conducted groundbreaking research to analyze and document the amazing healing power of animal-assisted therapy on children with cancer. Together, the new Institutes released a remarkablefive research studies in their inaugural year. We launched two new game-changing iPhone appsfor the most vulnerable, Lost Kidz and Lost Petz. We worked to help the children of militaryfamilies cope with the impacts of war through animal-assisted therapy, and helped bring four-footed heroes serving our troops overseas back home so they could enjoy a safe, long and well-deserved retirement. We protected over 97,000 animals in film and entertainment with a 99.98%safety rate. And we dramatically expanded the nations first, oldest, and fastest-growing farm animal program, ensuring the humane treatment of a staggering 200 million farm animals. Oursocial impact report highlights the measurable results of our humane program efforts.

    But we couldnt do it alone. Hundreds of Red Star Rescue volunteers and thousands upon thousands of new donors made it possible to get critically needed food, medicine and supplies to disaster zones from Brigantine, New Jersey to Fukushima, Japan. More than 100,000 people became part of the American Humane Association family in 2012, joining a compassion movement and an inner circle of caring stretching back more than a century. And Americansacross the country rallied to take part in the second American Humane Association Hero DogAwards, casting more than 3 million votes coast-to-coast in a national effort designed to bringlong-overdue attention and a deeper understanding to the vital, humanizing and often lifesavingimportance of the human-animal bond.

    The world will continue to be a dangerous and turbulent place for far too many vulnerable childrenand animals, but with your help, American Humane Association will continue to be there tostand with them and help them ride out the storms of life. I hope you will join our efforts in theyears ahead as so much is needed to build a more humane world one community at a time.

  • 4Social Impact Report with Measurable Results andEvidence-Based Humane SolutionsIn the past 12 months American Humane Association worked to ensure the welfare, wellness andwell-being of millions of children and animals, and unleash the power of the human-animalbond. We are pleased to report to you some of the key progress in the four main areas that makeup our charitable mission:

    HUMANE INTERVENTIONTM

    Red Star Animal Emergency Services started in 1916 by rescuing wounded horses on the battlefields of World War I Europe. Red Star Rescue teams have been part of every major disaster relief effort since from the Great Ohio Flood of 1937 to Pearl Harbor, the Haitian and Japanese earthquakes, Hurricane Katrina to Hurricane Sandy, and 9/11. In just the past fiveyears, these heroic teams with their 200 highly trained volunteers nationwide have rescued andcared for some 70,000 animals!
