DISCUSSION ACTIVITY #3:  INTEREST GROUPS The American Humane Association was founded by a collaboration of 27 humane organizations from  10 states in 1877 with the mission to protect animals and children from cruelty, abuse and neglect.  Currently, they are the only national nonprofit membership organization dedicated to protecting both  animals and children.  Hundreds of individuals, groups, child welfare and animal protective services  work together to ensure that no animal or child will ever be a victim of willful abuse or neglect.  In  addition to offering resources, information exchange, training and programs to its members, the  American Humane Association also supports local animal shelters through grants, public awareness  campaigns and other volunteer placement.
