This month we have chosen another organization from a follower on our Facebook Page. Remember at the end of the month, we will donate a portion of our total sales to the featured Non-Profit.
We have chosen American Humane, an organization that has the mission of "ensuring the safety, welfare, and well-being of animals." They provide different services from rescue and relocation to advocacy in the movies with their "No animals were harmed" program. What drew our attention was their work in the military.
They have programs in many different avenues from farming work to conservations. Their military program began in World War I when American Humane deployed workers to Europe and rescue and help 68,000 war horses.
Today, they assist the military in many ways including helping bring home retired military dogs left overseas, reuniting these dogs with their handlers, helping veterans getting therapy dogs, and recognizing military dog heroes. These are only some of the ways they work in the military. See a full list of how they work with the military here.
Excerpt from their website:
After years of being classified as “equipment” with thousands of military dogs being disposed of or left overseas, American Humane worked with Congress to require that military working dogs be brought back to U.S. soil upon retirement and that their handlers and their families be given first rights of adoption.
There are so many ways that you can help them. You can donate a vehicle, make a one time donation, gift stocks, matching donations and so much more. Check out their donations page here.
