AnimalsAsia – End Bear Bile Farming ~ In countries across Asia, thousands of bears live a life of torture on bear farms, so that their bile can be extracted and used in traditional medicine to cure ailments ranging from headaches to hemorrhoids. Bears are confined in cages which vary from agonizingly tiny “crush” cages to larger pens, all of which cause terrible physical and mental suffering.

Sheldrick Wildlife Trust ~ Elephants, more than any other species need S-P-A-C-E. The Tsavo National Park is the only Park in Kenya large enough to accommodate sizeable numbers in perpetuity. Where confined in smaller areas, elephants are at risk, for Nature never intended that they stay in one small patch for too long due to the impact they have on the vegetation. Also, Nature has made them a fragile species; the first to be adversely affected by drought and lack of adequate browse.

Whale Trust ~ Assist these most magnificent ocean Beings who impart so much to the world.  They work to photo-identify humpback whales throughout the North Pacific Ocean to determine current population estimates.

North American Bear Center ~ The mission of the non-profit North American Bear Center is to advance the long-term survival of bears worldwide by replacing misconceptions with scientific facts about bears, their role in ecosystems, and their relations with humans.

There is a huge need for accurate information about bears worldwide.

Save the Elephants ~Save the Elephants assists wildlife departments in their fight against ivory traders and poachers. They protect and monitor elephants with aerial surveillance and radio-tracking and believe that a renewed ivory trade remains the greatest potential threat to elephants.

World Wildlife ~ The world’s leading conservation organization, WWF works in 100 countries and is supported by 1.2 million members in the United States and close to 5 million globally. WWF’s unique way of working combines global reach with a foundation in science, involves action at every level from local to global, and ensures the delivery of innovative solutions that meet the needs of both people and nature.

Defenders of Wildlife ~ Defenders’ approach is direct and straightforward: They protect and restore imperiled species throughout North America by transforming policies and institutions and promoting innovative solutions, and this approach makes a lasting difference for wildlife and habitat.

Ulster County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals ~ The UCSPCA is a private, nonprofit organization whose mission is to prevent cruelty to animals by providing temporary shelter and finding adoptive homes for homeless, abused, and neglected animals; conducting cruelty investigations; eliminating the crisis of homeless animals by providing low-cost spay/neuter services for cats and by spaying or neutering all animals offered for adoption; providing humane education; and by working to improve laws to end animal cruelty.

Town of Saugerties Animal Shelter ~ Almost 1,000 dogs and cats will come through the shelter this year, hoping for a second (and maybe a third) chance at a happy life.

Born Free USA ~ Born Free USA is a national animal advocacy nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, contributions to which are tax-deductible.

International Society for the Protection of Mustangs and Burros ~ The International Society for the Protection of Mustangs and Burros is an effective international leader in their field because they have earned the respect and credibility of the many diverse participants in the Wild Horse and Burro program. Their approach to problem solving is unique amongst organizations. Rather than capitalizing on fear as a motivator to produce change or create funding, they believe that fear must be dispelled to effect positive changes accepted by all. Their main thrust is one of education and of becoming a model, a way of “being” on this planet we call Mother Earth. One can make no greater impression than to lead by example. ISPMB honors the wild horse and burro and realizes the interdependence of all living things in this universe.

The Buffalo Field Campaign (BFC) is the only group working in the field, every day, to stop the slaughter and harassment of Yellowstone’s wild buffalo.

Their daily patrols stand with the buffalo on the ground they choose to be on, and document every move made against them.

The Barn Cat Buddies program was created to save feral or skittish cats from a life of hunger on the streets or being destroyed in local shelters.   Barn Cat Buddies are Rodent Control Technicians who keep stables and farms pest free with their natural, non-toxic methods. These natural mousers will stop expensive grain and feed from destruction without costly and harmful chemicals!   Barn Cat Buddies are sterilized and rabies-vaccinated prior to moving to their new barn homes.   Barn Cat Buddies, an organization in Virginia, does not have a physical facility to house animals awaiting placement. Their emphasis is on education, networking, and referral support in an effort to assist in placing these Rodent Control Technicians in area barns, businesses, warehouses, etc.   CLICK HERE to request additional information.
