The United States faced a big problem in late 1800s for animal exploitation cases and there were many societies built up during that phase throughout the States. There were many ideas about it in the middle of century, but the first initiative was taken around 1873 for the savior of animals.

There was a great promotion and success for these organizations, but they still required an enhanced voice in promotion of humane movement. Hence, there was an initiative taken in the year 1877 from twenty seven humane organizations in 10 states for unifying their missions and combining their strengths to do something great for animals. It was the first meeting of the American Humane Association, which immediately began its work for saving animals and their precious lives in the most appropriate way. They began working after the first meeting and the primary purpose was to terminate inhumane treatment of animals in farm. There were ill-conditions in which these farm animals were kept and the first step was taken for them for improving their condition.
