Animal People, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity incorporated in the state of New York in May of 1992. Animal People, Inc. commenced publishing of the ANIMAL PEOPLE newspaper in October of 1992 in New York, relocated to Washington state and added user-searchable online archives in 1996, and introduced French and Spanish subsections to our website in 2002 and Arabic translations in 2004.
Major ongoing themes of coverage include innovative approaches to animal care, domestic and wild animal population control, and humane education. Along with describing the work that progressive agencies and individuals throughout the world are accomplishing for animals, we emphasize statistical analysis to determine cost, feasibility, and how long it takes to see results. From the beginning, ANIMAL PEOPLE has given prominence to extending lifesaving humane services to rural areas of the United States and in developing countries where animal care has been substandard or nonexistent. Many, if not most, of the progressive techniques and trends now revolutionizing animal care and control were introduced in the pages of ANIMAL PEOPLE.
