American Humane Association Names Global Animal Health Leader John Payne As New Board Chair

Senior Executive at Bayer Healthcare, Mars Global PetCare and Banfield Pet Hospitals brings decades of experience to nation's leading charity protecting children and animals

WASHINGTON, March 22, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Global animal healthcare leader John Payne, who has served in top positions at Bayer Healthcare, Mars Global PetCare, and Banfield Pet Hospitals, has been named chairman of the board at American Humane Association, the country's first national humane organization and for more than 136 years the leading pioneer in the protection of children and animals.


Payne, a well-known veteran in both the international and domestic animal wellness and welfare spaces, brings more than 30 years experience to the venerable charity, and his work, knowledge, and global influence will help pave the way for another century of growth and innovation at American Humane Association.

"It is an honor to be elected to the board of an organization with such a rich history of protecting society's most vulnerable," said Mr. Payne. "Our work is vital in protecting hundreds of millions of children, pets, farm animals, service animals, and animal actors from cruelty, abuse, and neglect. In just the past two years, under the leadership of Dr. Robin Ganzert, the organization has made remarkable advances, quadrupling the number of children and animals under its protection, launching innovative research efforts designed at helping children with cancer and lowering pet abandonment rates, and saving animals in peril around the globe. I look forward to working with my fellow board members and Dr. Ganzert to further extend the organization's reach and their position as the most respected voice in the animal and child welfare field."

Mr. Payne has received worldwide recognition for his work, including plaudits from the charity he now serves as well as leading animal health organizations. Among many other encomiums, he was honored at the American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards™ for his significant achievements in the field of animal welfare, including his commitment to bringing "human quality" medicine and healthcare to pets. Looking forward to the next generation, Pfizer Animal Health, now known as Zoetis, funded the John Payne Veterinary Student Research Initiative, which provided a stipend to a veterinary student researcher as part of the Humane Scholar class of 2012.
