When You Donate by Purchasing One of our Gifts That Give More™: 

One of the programs we are most proud of is our carefully curated list of projects you can support called Gifts That Give More™. Through this innovative program, we allow you to donate very specific things to help animals, such as contribute to a shelter rebuild, fund programs that bring animals and people together, and help wildlife rescue and preservation efforts.

Our dedicated professional program staff works to identify animal welfare organizations in The United States and around the world having the biggest impact - in many cases, these are small, local nonprofits you may not have heard of, but they are independently vetted by our staff to ensure their work is best-in-class. Through this program, we allow you to make a donation that reaches animals.

Plus, 100% of your gift reaches the intended recipient program you choose. even covers the credit card processing fees. So, when you donate 50 vaccines to shelter animals, you know that you are providing just that - 50 vaccines to animals who need them. It's a donation you can be proud of, and confident in.
