Protect wildlife in your own backyard.

Every day, more and more wildlife habitats are lost to the spread of development. You can help by creating a Humane Backyard:

  • Provide natural sources of food for wildlife, including native plants.
  • Provide water for wildlife through natural or manmade sources.
  • Provide shelter and safe places for animals to raise their young.
  • Avoid the use of chemical pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers.
  • Be aware of the harm free-roaming pets can inflict upon wildlife and take steps to ensure companion animals will not pose threats to wild animals.
  • Use humane, nonlethal approaches for resolving any conflicts with wildlife.

With a tax-deductible one-time gift of at least $30, you’ll receive a Humane Backyard sign and gardening gloves. You’ll also receive a complimentary subscription to our award-winning magazine, All Animals, featuring a new Humane Backyard tip article in each issue. Sign up today to help protect all animals!


Giving monthly is the best way to provide ongoing support in our fight to protect all animals.
