The American Humane Association has long recognized the tremendous connection we each share as living beings. The American Humane Certified program is based on the most advanced system of independent monitoring, oversight and third-party certification through an exclusive three-tier process that provides optimum accountability through transparency.

In order to constantly maintain the program’s effectiveness, American Humane Association regularly reviews and updates the standards with its distinguished Scientific Advisory Committee so that producers have the benefit of the latest global research, technological advances, best practices, and new methods for more humane care.
