American Humane Certiﬁed™ is celebrating a special anniversary – 20 years of certifying and shining a spotlight on excellent producers across the country. Twenty years ago, we set out to raise the standard for farm animal welfare in America. Now we improve the lives of some 1 billion animals every year.
American Humane is the largest certiﬁer of animal welfare in the world. Our programs stretch across the globe, from our iconic No Animals Were Harmed® ﬁlm and television certiﬁcation program to our century-old rescue team, which deploys to natural disasters and cases of animal cruelty. We certify outstanding zoos and aquariums doing essential conservation and education work. In the military space, we work alongside our nation’s troops, training service dogs for veterans with PTS and TBI and bringing home retired military working dogs.
All of our programs are rooted in a science and evidence-based understanding of animal welfare. We don’t just do what sounds good, we do what is good. The standards for all of our certiﬁcation programs are developed by independent scientiﬁc advisory committees, comprised of renowned scientists and leaders in their respective ﬁelds. American Humane Certiﬁed™ assures consumers that products carrying our label meet the highest standards of animal welfare, veriﬁed by regular, third-party audit inspections.
I hope you enjoy reading our farm newsletter. If you are interested in becoming American Humane Certiﬁed™, my colleagues would enjoy the opportunity to visit with you and discuss our program. I am also always available to talk to you directly at [email protected].
All my best,
Robin R. Ganzert, Ph.D.
