WASHINGTON, April 21, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As part of its ongoing commitment to the welfare, wellness, and well-being of America's millions of pets, American Humane Association, the first national humane organization, is pleased to announce that it has joined Partners for Healthy Pets as an associate member. This committee of the American Veterinary Medical Foundation is comprised of more than 110 veterinary associations, colleges of veterinary medicine, and animal health nonprofits and companies that all feature a shared vision of improving pet health and welfare.

Research has shown that pet owners are receptive to making changes to their pets' care and are more amenable to preventive care if they are aware of how it will benefit their pets. Partners for Healthy Pets offers resources for veterinarians to relay to their clients about different aspects of pet health, including vaccinations, nutrition, dental care, and heartworm prevention. A key component of Partners for Healthy Pets is its member success stories, which highlight what veterinary practices have done to improve the quality of care provided to their patients by utilizing the tools and resources offered on the partnership's website. Many of these resources utilize the American Veterinary Medical Association's and the American Animal Hospital Association's Canine & Feline Preventive Healthcare Guidelines, which American Humane Association also endorses.

Since its founding in 1877, American Humane Association's mission has been fortified with a scientific background. The organization understands that staying abreast of scientific breakthroughs is key to building humane communities and strengthening the human-animal bond, the inextricable link between people, pets, and they world they share. Veterinarians are essential to achieving programmatic goals, and their expertise will continue to guide American Humane Association's policies.

"American Humane Association is honored to join Partners for Healthy Pets," said Dr. Robin Ganzert, American Humane Association's President and CEO. "Like our fellow members, we share the vision of improving the well-being and health of our pets. It is so important that they receive proper veterinary care, and we will continue to espouse the importance of yearly check-ups for our furry, winged, and scaled friends."

"Partners for Healthy Pets is a wonderful collaborative group of like-minded companies, associations, and veterinarians all committed to bettering the health of our pets," added John Payne, Chair of American Humane Association's Board of Directors. "I cannot think of a better initiative for America's first national humane organization to partner with."

"Preventive care is the ideal," said Dr. Ron DeHaven, Partners for Healthy Pets Chairman. "The conversation we want to have is, 'You need to get your pet in for that annual checkup.' We want to point out that the annual checkup is as essential to the well-being of the pet as food and love."
