The Fund for Animals was founded in 1967 by prominent author and animal advocate Cleveland Amory. For more than 50 years, The Fund for Animals has spearheaded some of the most significant events in the history of the animal protection movement by employing hard-hitting advocacy campaigns and operating world-famous animal care facilities like the Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch. The Fund for Animals historic victories have saved thousands of animals from cruelty and suffering.
For more than 15 years, the Humane Society of the United States has supported and worked side-by-side with the Fund for Animals to provide lifesaving care for the animals in greatest need. We are now deepening our relationship. Over the coming months, we intend to merge the two organizations, fully integrating the Fund for Animals into the Humane Society of the United States. The Fund for Animals (which operates Black Beauty Ranch, Duchess Sanctuary and Rural Area Veterinary Services) has been an affiliate of the HSUS and part of its family of organizations since 2005.
This merger will make us even more effective in providing care for animals in crisis. All the work for animals at Black Beauty Ranch, Duchess Sanctuary and Rural Area Veterinary Services will continue at the Humane Society of the United States—and your support will continue to be essential.
