Dear Friend of Animals,

If you have already made a donation to help sick, injured and orphaned animals at risk, we would like to thank you for your kindness and generosity. 

If have not yet made a donation, please help us save just one more life.  

We have very good news.  A generous benefactor has agreed to triple your donation and we are coming ever closer to our goal of raising $ 50.000 to help even more animals.

Please make your life saving donation now and every $ 1 you donate will be matched by $3               

You can also call toll free at 1-800-641-KIND (5463) to make a credit card donation.

We promise to use every one of your hard earned dollars carefully and wisely.  And when it comes to fighting cruelty, we don't give up.  Ever.

I hope you and yours had a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.  Like you, we were surrounded by our beloved pets as we opened presents and they played and slept in front of the crackling logs of a roaring fireplace.  Our companions, furred, finned and feathered are part of our families and across the street and across the country, we share our homes with more than 18 million animal companions of every shape, size and colour. 

Then there are the wildlife thriving in their natural homes who race across the land, soar through the heavens and dive beneath the ocean depths.  In a world far older than our own, they move finished and complete. Gifted with extensions of the sense we have lost or never attained, living by voices we will never truly understand.

However, we know one thing for certain.  Inside we're not so different at all.  We share a sense of family, compassion and kindness.  We want to protect those we love and the natural world we all share.
We left out extra suet and a special blend of seeds for the birds which have overwintered and extra leftovers and peanuts for the squirrels, raccoons and a possum family that live nearby.

All of the animals we cherish are facing more clear and present dangers than ever before.  Caring people like you and me are all that stand between animals and those who want to harm them

Only one species has the power to save them.  Ours.  In a world whose attitudes and conditions often defy human hope, with your help, we are making a difference.  Please help us bring hope to animals.

From our family to yours, best wishes for a Wondrous New Year,


Chairman & CEO
