Every day ASI equips people working to understand and improve human-animal relationships with essential knowledge and tools. We lead the translation of research on human-animal interaction into practice and promote evidence-based approaches that get results.

We couldn’t do this important work without you.

Now you can help even more by becoming a member of HeART, our new monthly giving program.

Our Human Animal-Relationship Team (HeART) members truly are at the heart of the essential work we do every day to support and improve human-animal relationships. By becoming a monthly donor, you will join a special team of people who are champions for animals and people alike.

Here’s what HeART’s monthly donations can do:

  • 50¢ per day ($15/month) will provide training materials to equip five school counselors to intervene effectively with children who abuse animals.
  • $1 per day ($30/month) will provide five professors with resources to teach a human-animal studies course, reaching a minimum of 20 students who might otherwise never be exposed to such a course.
  • $2.50 per day ($75/month) will bring to your community a workshop on children, animal abuse and what professionals and the public need to know to prevent childhood animal cruelty.
  • $3.33 per day ($100/month) will cover the $1300 cost for one issue of Society & Animals, one of the major journals in the field of human-animal studies.
  • $4.16 per day ($125/month) will cover the cost of one Fellow as part of our Summer Institute for Human-Animal Studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, our flagship human-animal studies program.

Benefits of monthly giving:

  • Helping more animals and people: Your monthly gift helps us touch more lives by reducing administrative costs. Every penny you give each month goes further to help us provide resources to people like you who care deeply about the well-being of all animals.
  • Satisfaction: Knowing you’re one of a select group of people who care about making a difference for all animals 7 days a week/365 days a year feels good!
  • Easy access to your giving account: You can increase, decrease or cancel your monthly donation at any time. We will provide you an annual statement to assist in tax preparation.
  • Special updates and previews: You will receive special updates throughout the year. You’ll be the first to know about all of the new programs we will be rolling out in the next few years. And you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing you made them all possible!
