Nonprofits of the Month :: August 2010 :: Animal Sanctuaries
Animal sanctuaries exist because there are places, people and things that animals need sanctuary from. Chimps are used in labs for animal testing. Elephants are forced to perform silly tricks through submission in circuses. In many states it is legal to own tigers as pets, but once they grow too large they are often abandoned or sold on the black market. Untold millions of dogs and cat are euthanized each year – a lucky few make it to no-kill sanctuaries. Factory farming is the cruelest of all.
The nonprofits below work on every one of these issues and provide sanctuary for all kinds of animals in need, and they pretty good at utilizing social media too. Please friend, follow and fan!
