Are you crazy about sloth bears and manatees, but know there’s obviously no way you can adopt one? This is where an amazing thing called sponsorship can make a difference, both in your own heart and in the lives of animals that need our help.
Through the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), you can symbolically “adopt” an animal, kits as inexpensive as $25 (including a photo, adoption certificate and species card) or as high as $100 (including a plush, gift boxes/bags, framed photo, etc.), with nearly 150 species from which to choose. The WWF has been working for over 50 years in worldwide conservation efforts and 84% your donation goes toward general support of the organization.
Want to make a difference closer to home? Do you love horses, but live in a tiny, one-bedroom apartment? Many rescues (including Indiana Horse Rescue) allow you to sponsor an animal in need and are non-profit, which makes your donation tax-deductible. Check with your local rescue and see how you can help … make a donation and help your local rescue help more animals in need.
