Welcome to Society & Animals Forum

Since 1981, Society & Animals Forum (formerly Psychologists for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) works with social scientists, mental health providers and other animal protection organizations to reduce the suffering and exploitation of both human and nonhuman animals.

A 501(c) (3) organization, the Society & Animals Forum produces educational programs and materials on the relationship between human and nonhuman animals.  The ultimate objective of our programs is to reduce violence against human and nonhuman animals.  The organization’s activities include providing training workshops; publishing, designing, producing, and distributing journals, professional manuals, and other educational materials; and creating and running advocacy programs.
