American Humane Association's Red Star™ Animal Emergency Services program was founded in 1916 when the U.S. Secretary of War asked American Humane to report to the battlefields of WWI to rescue war horses. Since that time and for almost one hundred years, Red Star has responded to disasters impacting communities around the globe in time of disaster and crisis for animals.
Together The Weather Channel & American Humane Association launched a nationwide search for a dog to adopt and train as the official Weather Channel Therapy Dog. Butler travels to affected communities in the days and weeks after a storm, to offer help in the coping and healing process. Research shows that petting a dog can lower a person’s blood pressure, improve their mood, and serve as an emotional release.
