    American Humane Association Press Release
    to receive timely Action Alerts about issues affecting animals. You'll be able to make a difference for animals with just the click of your mouse.

    Report animal abuse. While acts of violence against animals are tragic in their own right, they are also a red flag for other violent behavior, including domestic abuse and violent crime.

    Appreciate wildlife. Leave room in your yard for habitats. Make a bird or bat house.

    Share kindness. Teach the people in your life -- especially children -- about the importance of being kind to animals.

    Make a donation to your local animal shelter. A donation can be any number of contributions, from your time or money, to needed items like pet food or laundry detergent.

    Adopt a pet from a shelter or breed placement group. Approximately eight million to 12 million animals enter our nation's shelters every year, and more than half of these pets will have to be euthanized because of a lack of homes. Local shelters are the best place to find companion animals -- no matter what type you're looking for. Keep in mind that one out of every four dogs in shelters is a purebred.

    Help solve the tragedy of euthanasia of adoptable animals by not contributing to the problem. If you have pets, make sure they are spayed or neutered. Pets should be microchipped and always wear a collar with an ID tag, so they can be returned home quickly if they are ever lost.

    About the American Humane Association

    Founded in 1877, the American Humane Association is the oldest national organization dedicated to protecting both children and animals. Through a network of child and animal protection agencies and individuals, the American Humane Association develops policies, legislation, curricula and training programs to protect children and animals from abuse, neglect and exploitation. The nonprofit membership organization, headquartered in Denver, raises awareness about The Link(r) between animal abuse and other forms of violence, as well as the benefits derived from the human-animal bond. American Humane's regional office in Los Angeles is the authority behind the "No Animals Were Harmed(r)" End Credit Disclaimer on TV and film productions, and American Humane's office in the Washington, D.C., area is an advocate for child and animal protection at the state and federal levels.
