Animals and Society Institute

 The Animals and Society Institute is a nonprofit, independent research and educational organization that advances the status of animals in public policy, and promotes the study of human-animal relationships. The ASI seeks to advance institutional change for animals by helping to establish the moral and legal rights fundamental to a just, compassionate and peaceful society.

The ASI is the result of the 2005 merger of two well-respected organizations: the Society and Animals Forum (formerly Psychologists for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, run by Kenneth Shapiro, Ph.D.), and the Institute for Animals and Society (previously known as the Animal Rights Network, publisher of The Animals’ Agenda magazine, and led by Kim W. Stallwood). Ken Shapiro and Kim Stallwood are now the co-executive directors of the Animals and Society Institute, which has its main office in Baltimore, Maryland.

Wild Watch

The mission of Wildlife Watch (WW) is to protect individual wild animals and species from deliberate and inadvertent impacts that originate most often with federal, state and local governments. WW also addresses impacts caused by private individuals, businesses, groups, organizations and institutions. WW encourages harmless, non-lethal solutions to wildlife "conflicts" using education, providing referrals or direct help, and being a resource. WW operates through legal, political, and public channels. The goal of WW is the well being of wild animals for their own sake.
