Non-Profit Organizations: The Fund for Animals


The Fund for Animals was founded in 1967 by prominent author and animal advocate Cleveland Amory, and for 37 years, 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, such as the Black Beauty Ranch. The Fund's historic victories have saved thousands of animals from cruelty and suffering.


In 2005, The Fund for Animals and The Humane Society of the United States joined together to form an unprecedented partnership for animals. Since then The Fund has expanded its efforts to protect animals in the courts and at five direct animal care facilities.


The Fund has won landmark lawsuits to protect animals from hunting and trapping, and the organization is fighting for animals in the courts with the help of its Animal Protection Litigation section. This group of full-time attorneys, law clerks, and pro bono law firms are defending animals in federal and state courts from cruelty and abuse. The Fund's current cases seek to protect endangered species, stop the abuse of circus elephants, keep national wildlife refuges safe for animals, and much more.

  • The Fund's direct animal care operations provide medical treatment and a helping hand for the animals under their care, while training volunteers and supporting their local communities. Renamed the Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch to memorialize its late, great founder, this flagship sanctuary is a permanent refuge for more than 1,300 animals on 1,300 acres in the rolling hills of east Texas.


  • The Fund for Animals' Wildlife Center in southern California gives 24-hour medical care to injured and orphaned wildlife and specializes in native predator species such as bobcats, coyotes and eagles.


  • The Rabbit Sanctuary offers "hope for the hopless" and a home for rescued rabbits in South Carolina; it is supported by The Fund for Animals and The Humane Society of the United States.


  • The Cape Wildlife Center in Massachusetts provides emergency care as well as long-term rehabilitation to wild animals from across the southeastern corner of the state. The center also assists the community with humane solutions to wildlife difficulties, and along with other education programs, sponsors an externship program for students interested in veterinary medicine and/or wildlife rehabilitation.


  • And lastly, the Rural Area Veterinary Services (RAVS) program provides important medical services to remote communities worldwide.

The Fund for Animals and The HSUS enhanced their public policy work in 2005 by forming the Humane Society Legislative Fund, which is working to pass laws protecting animals in Congress and in all 50 states. Concerned citizens are always encouraged to sign up for the electronic newsletter, HumaneLines, which has critical information and urgent alerts on animal protection legislation.


As a nonprofit charity, The Fund for Animals' work is made possible by the support of caring members and friends. Employment opportunities are available occasionally. From classroom to courtroom, from clinic to sanctuary, The Fund is working to carry on Cleveland Amory's legacy "to speak for those who can't."
