Founded in 1987, United Animal Nations (UAN) focuses on bringing animals out of crisis and strengthening the bond between people and animals through a variety of programs, including emergency sheltering, disaster relief services, financial assistance and education.

Through our volunteer-driven Emergency Animal Rescue Service (EARS), UAN shelters and cares for animals displaced by natural disasters and other crises, such as criminal seizures and hoarding cases, in the United States and Canada.
The LifeLine Grant Program provides funding to Good Samaritans, animal rescuers, non-profit organizations and pet owners to help them care for animals in life-threatening situations.
Through the Premarin Awareness Campaign, UAN educates women about hormone drugs made from pregnant mares’ urine (PMU) and helps people adopt the mares and foals cast off from this industry who might otherwise be at risk for slaughter.
UAN's Humane Education Ambassador Reader (HEAR) Program helps children explore the bond between people and animals through stories and discussion. HEAR volunteers visit elementary school classrooms, after-school programs, bookstores, animal shelters and other venues to read to children and lead discussions -- helping children develop critical thinking skills and empathy.
