Humane Generation

Humane Generation Los Angeles


Humane Generation is comprised of emerging animal welfare advocates and well-networked modern philanthropists who possess a deep interest in the initiatives of The HSUS, serving as a leadership pipeline for the future of the organization. The founding committee, Humane Generation/Friends of Finn, was created in partnership with Amanda Hearst in New York in 2010 and has raised over $2.3M to fight puppy mills. Its success created a path to establish a national program to cultivate relationships with this demographic, placing value on community, high-touch interaction and meaningful participation. With the launch of Humane Generation Los Angeles in January 2017, more than 30 doer-donors are engaged across the two cities.

Committees dedicate their fundraising and advocacy to a single campaign or program within The HSUS, and are uniquely positioned to provide outside-of-the-box assistance.


The Humane Generation/Friends of Finn committee is a group of young leaders dedicated to working with the Stop Puppy Mills campaign to put an end to the inhumane treatment of dogs in puppy mills and to advocate for pet adoption. Committee members raise funds for rescue efforts as well as education and public awareness initiatives, and spread an important message: adopt don’t shop! Stopping the sale of puppy mill dogs in pet shops will not only close off markets for inhumane puppy mills, it will also encourage the public to acquire dogs from shelters, rescues and responsible breeders who treat their animals with the care and love they deserve. 


Founded in 2017 in partnership with Kimberly Ovitz, the Humane Generation Los Angeles committee is a group of young leaders dedicated to working with the Farm Animal Protection campaign to reduce the suffering of animals raised for meat, eggs and dairy. The campaign’s efforts include, but are not limited to: cruel confinement of farm animals, humane eating, force-fed animals, cruel slaughter practices and environmental impacts of factory farming. Committee members raise funds for education and public awareness initiatives and advocate for a more humane lifestyle.
