Like you, we want a kinder, more compassionate world that celebrates animals as sentient beings who are deserving of our attention, understanding, and respect. We believe that the human animal bond is a rich, shared experience and that we have the capacity and responsibility to honor the inherent value of the animals with whom we share the planet.

As a museum, we are the first of our kind. We exist to preserve, interpret and share our inspiring legacy of animal protection, to nurture current and future generations’ overall awareness about animals in society and to empower change.

In 2013, after 4 years of having a strong online presence, we opened our first gallery space in Hollywood. In that time, we held six diverse and thoughtful exhibitions and hosted innovative programs and events.

Our goal is to move to a much larger space in a more prestigious location, close to Los Angeles’ museum row. We will continue presenting animal protection issues through world-class curating in a palatable, viewer-friendly manner. The new space will allow us to house permanent, as well as rotating exhibits and appeal to a broader group of visitors. We will also host educational and motivational film screenings, lectures, classes, and events.
