American Humane Association
Since 1877, the historic American Humane Association has been at the forefront of virtually every major policy movement, legislative effort, and shift in cultural attitudes aimed at improving the lives of children, and protecting pets and farm animals from abuse and neglect. Today the organization is leading the way in understanding human-animal interaction and its role in society.

The Seeing Eye
The Seeing Eye, Inc. is the oldest existing dog guide school in the world. Twelve times a year, as many as 24 students at a time visit the Morristown, N.J. campus to discover the exhilarating experience of traveling with a Seeing Eye® dog.
Students – people who are blind or visually impaired – come from all over the United States and Canada to spend up to a month training with a new Seeing Eye® dog. They range in age from 16 to senior citizens, their home environments may be rural or urban, and they may be homemakers, volunteers, or judges. But they all have this in common: they are motivated by a sense of independence and armed with the knowledge that Seeing Eye® dogs will provide an extra edge to attain success, however they may choose to define it.

National Canine Cancer Foundation
Canine Cancer affects 1 out of every 3 dogs. Of those, over half of them will die of cancer. The National Canine Cancer Foundation is asking for your help to fund important research grants that are working toward improving those statistics. Through a major project funded by the National Institute of Health, the mapping of the genome sequence of the dog has been complete. Knowing the mapping of every gene in the dog, gives researchers an advantage not yet achieved in humans. For more information about the National Canine Cancer Foundation, visit www.wearethecure.org
