Welcome to the Latham Foundation!

Founded in 1918, Latham is a clearinghouse for information about:

• Humane issues and activities
• The human-companion animal bond (HCAB)
• Animal-assisted therapy
• The connections between child and animal abuse and other forms of violence

Latham is a producer and distributor of affordable videos and publications on the above topics and the publisher of the Latham Letter. We also created and sponsored the “Search for Excellence” Video Awards.

As a private operating foundation Latham does not make cash grants; rather, it works in many non-partisan roles including publisher, producer, facilitator, sponsor, and colleague.
