The Humane Society of the United States is the nation's largest animal protection organization. They work to reduce suffering and improve the lives of all animals by advocating for better laws; investigating animal cruelty; encouraging corporations to adopt animal-friendly policies; conducting disaster relief and animal rescue; and providing direct care for thousands of animals at our sanctuaries, emergency shelters, wildlife rehabilitation centers, and mobile veterinary clinics

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) mission is to provide effective means for the prevention of cruelty to animals throughout the United States. The ASPCA works hard to prevent animal cruelty and they have saved the lives of millions of animals through humane shelters and pet adoptions.
If you are considering a new pet, please check your local animal shelters for pets who desperately need to be adopted into a loving home. ASPCA.org has a search tool that enables you to find and adopt a pet breed that will fit your lifestyle and expectations.

Tips on Donating to a Charity
Make a plan! Decide which charities will be efficient when utilizing your donation. A high percentage of the money raised should going to help the cause, and not being spent on the administration of the charity. If the amount is not published, then ask about their expense ratio before you donate to them. Choose a cause that resonates with your values and personality.
Be clever! Before you donate to a charity, you should always verify their status with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and check their record at the Better Business Bureau (BBB).
