"Trying to minimize the amount of cruelty you participate in, I think, is healthy for anybody to do. And it doesn’t mean you have to be perfect. But I think making the effort makes a difference. Making different choices, even a couple of days a week, makes a difference."
- Lisa Edelstein

I'm not sure if you wanna add these, but these are the charities I work with, just so you know--

North Shore Animal League America Biggest no-kill shelter in the country

Médecins Sans Frontières

Wildlife Conservation Society

Animal Planet's R.O.A.R (Reach Out, Act, Respond)

Wildlife Aid UK (this one is closest to my heart, in fact, and on the brink of collapse. there's a campaign to try and save it, so I'd really REALLY appreciate it if you could spread the link around)

I hope that's not being rude or anything. It's a great list though!

Not at all! I'm adding all the sites right now.

Do you by any chance have a link to the campaign site, or ways to help Wildlife Aid?

The campaign is on the site; they're asking for donation urgently. My whole paycheck went there this and last month. If it closes I'll be torn.

Thank you so much for the link puttage. It's an amazing list. I have to make one too, or maybe I'll just make a post pointing people here?

I would be totally cool with you linking people here. I mean, if you want to make your own list, obviously go for it. But this could be like our little joint-venture list if you want?

As of right now, is it better to make a donation than to adopt? Or do both benefit equally?

To make a donation. The food supporters dropped them.

Wildlife SOS

You Can Help!

Wildlife Aid

Wildlife Aid is the charity featured on Wildlife SOS. While there are thousands of organisations and schemes dedicated to the vital work of preserving natural habitats, there are still very few who help preserve the species that live within them. Wildlife Aid is dedicated to the rescue, care and rehabilitation of sick, injured or orphaned wildlife. Visit www.wildlifeaid.com for more details.

Back to the wild

All the animals that come into Wildlife Aid’s care are treated and rehabilitated completely free of charge. Their aim is to return every animal that is capable of surviving back into its natural environment. Unfortunately, there are still too many incidents when the injuries - often deliberately inflicted by man - are so severe that they would be unable ever to be able to return to this wild. Wildlife Aid do not believe that it is right to keep any wild animal in captivity and so, heartbreakingly, allow any such animal the dignity of a peaceful and pain free death in a warm and comfortable environment.

Donations

A single donation to Wildlife Aid, no matter how small, does make a difference. Your donation will go towards paying for food, accommodation costs, treatment needs and release of all the wildlife that arrives at the centre daily. Visit www.wildlifeaid.com for more details.

Become a member

You can help Wildlife Aid by becoming a member. As a member, you will receive a quarterly newsletter, crammed with news, information about what is happening at the centre, articles and photographs. You can also choose to receive regular updates via e mail, plus advance notification of open days and any other events.

Adopt an Animal

By adopting an animal, you will be helping out with the costs of specialist care, food and medicines that your particular patient needs to help it return to the wild as quickly as possible. Visit www.wildlifeaid.com for more details.

Hello! This is a great list, and I'm so delighted to learn that it's something that LE supports.

Perhaps you could add my favourite organisation/ charity, Compassion in World Farming? The name speaks for itself, and they're not nuts. This is something we piglets naturally feel strongly about :)

They're here (http://www.ciwf.org.uk/).

OH, that looks wonderful! I will definitely add it. That reminds me that I so need to update this list with new organizations. Thanks! :D

These are great! I've visited many of them before and just now visited a bunch more. I've always like been like this so it's great to see lots of people who'd support them, and knowing that LE supports such great causes it's like heart-melting. <3 Like ahhh♥ :] Mind if I link to these too?

They are really wonderful causes. I'm glad you like the list! If you have anything to add, let me know, I'd be happy to put it on the list.

Lisa is a beautiful woman, no doubt about that. :)
