"Denver Pet Partners is a perfect fit with American Humane and will help us realize our mutual dreams of animal-assisted therapy becoming recognized as a mainstream treatment option," added McQuarrie. "Together, we can increase the knowledge base about the value of the human-animal bond and the effectiveness of animal-assisted activities and therapy in enhancing the healing and learning process."
About American Humane
The American Humane Association is the only national organization
dedicated to protecting both children and animals. Founded in 1877,
American Humane is celebrating its 130th anniversary this year. Through a
network of child and animal protection agencies and individuals, American
Humane 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 film and TV
productions, and American Humane's office in Washington is an advocate for
child and animal protection at the federal and state levels. American
Humane meets the strong, comprehensive standards of the Better Business
Bureau's Wise Giving Alliance, has been awarded the Independent Charities
of America "Best in America" Seal of Approval and has received a 3-star
rating from Charity Navigator, America's leading charity evaluator. Visit
