"When one works on animal issues, one is working on the first rung of the ladder that leads us up toward a more compassionate, inclusive and humane community"

—Barbara Clarke


More than a hundred years ago leaders in San Francisco and New York City, had become concerned about their community's treatment of both children and animals. Their observations of insensitivity and apathy toward the every day suffering of their city's most vulnerable members became the impetus for a nationwide movement to end cruelty and create a humane culture.  As Dan Knapp, formally of the Sonoma County SPCA wrote " they realized how a community acts out its values on those most vulnerable would determine the temperament of the future." The end result of this concern was the formation of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and Children.
