The tragic fate of a small dog hurled casually from a moving vehicle onto a California freeway so shocked and outraged the late actor Richard Basehart and his wife, Diana, that they joined together with other celebrities and concerned citizens to launch the non-profit humane organization, Actors and Others for Animals.

When the organization opened its doors in 1971, the animal welfare movement was just beginning to shed its image as a "bunch of crazies" to become a viable cause gaining respectability and support. Early members, such as Doris Day and Lucie Arnaz, recognized that their celebrity status enabled them to focus media attention on the plight of animals and turn one voice into a thousand. The public heard the cry for help and reacted strongly with demands for change.

Actors and Others for Animals

A broad-based group, Actors and Others for Animals' "nuts and bolts" approach allows them to direct resources where the need is greatest and where they can do the most good. Since day one, Actors and Others for Animals has devoted most of its efforts toward helping pet owners get their animals spayed or neutered. Today, Actors and Others for Animals is still focusing much of its energy to promote spaying and neutering, believing strongly that pet overpopulation is the greatest breeder of animal cruelty. Actors and Others for Animals is dedicated to providing:

  • Spay/Neuter Assistance & Education
  • Help Line Referral Service
  • Humane Education
  • Legislative Involvement
  • Pet Assisted Therapy
  • Emergency Assistance
