I am a recipient of financial, emotional and moral support from AKI. I wouldn't be able to help and save the hundreds and hundreds of animals that I do otherwise. Nothing less than a 5 star review for this wonderful U.S. based organization.

Animal-Kind International is an amazing nonprofit that is reaching animals (dogs, cats and donkeys) that have had no chance to a life without fear, pain and starvation. AKI has made it a priority to educate people, starting with the children, (as a regular class in school) on how to treat these animals with kindness, see to their needs and to provide them with a proper diet and in return they will receive unconditional love. AKI provides much needed money and supplies (through donations) to house, feed, spay and neuter and healing for both medical and psychological problems for animals and in some places where people do not traditionally touch, let alone hug and pet and play with dogs and cats. The kindness to animals later translates into kindness for other humans. The money collected by AKI is used exclusively for the above purposes. I donate to numerous animal welfare nonprofits, but AKI is my favorite and thus gets my biggest donation.

Karen Menczer's exceptional leadership has made Animal-Kind International an outstanding organization for the welfare of animals. AKI is what it is today because Karen - and her staff and donors - has put her heart and soul into helping animals who otherwise might not have survived. Thank you Karen and AKI!

I have first hand experience of seeing this charity in action and I am really impressed with their passion for and dedication to improving the lives of hundreds of animals across the world.

I worked with AKI's affiliate in Kingston, Jamaica, and can attest firsthand to the huge difference this incredible organization makes. With partners all over the world, AKI is manifesting big change by helping animals. And it's not just the animals that benefit. I witnessed the huge shifts that the people in these communities experienced too as we delivered food, medicines, and love to animals in some of the poorest neighborhoods in town. People's lives have been turned around by their experiences helping to care for and defend these animals. By helping animals, AKI helps the whole world!

My sister and I spent several days working with AKI-affiliated Deborah Binns in Kingston, Jamaica. Alone or with the help of only a few people, Deborah travels a different route around Kingston every day to feed and medicate malnourished dogs and cats. Her work has saved countless lives. On top of that, Deborah's efforts have led to incredible changes in the communities she visits. She has inspired people within these areas, especially children, to see animals differently. Because of this they have become more humane, not only to the dogs and cats of the streets, but to themselves and other people as well. Deepest love and respect to Deborah and to AKI!!

Well run non-profit that ensures 100% of donations go directly to their agents in the field who care for animas in developing countries. Excellent documentation of their work and the work of their field agents.

AKI efforts manifest love for all creatures; as such, they are changing human and (other) animal lives for the better.

Animal-kind International has consistently helped the less fortunate animals in countries around the world where they are often ignored or even harmed. AKI and Karen Menczer have helped by donating medical supplies, by funding spay/neuter surgeries for rescued animals, and also by being available for emotional support. I whole heartedly give them an A plus for all they do.

Animal-Kind International has consistently supported Helping Hands for Hounds of Honduras. AKI helps not only with financial support to treat, vaccinate and spay/neuter abandoned, sick and injured dogs and cats, they also help with food, construction, and paying people to help with the cleaning and upkeep of the shelter. Knowing they are there to support and give advice is a big plus in a country with little regard for animals left to die on the streets. They respond quickly to any inquiries made by tourists about animal welfare here.

Animal-Kind International is by far my favourite animal charity in the world. They have gone above and beyond for so many shelters and rescue groups around the world who have found themselves in the most dire situations and often times in countries that are going against everything they are standing for in regards to animal welfare and animal rights. I have had the pleasure of bringing various donations and supplies to AKI supported shelters such as the USPCA in Uganda and Helping Hands for Hounds in Honduras. From my first hand experiences, I know for a fact that Animal-Kind International is a class act charity that deserves all the support and recognition that they can get!!

I have been a donor to AKI for years, I personally know the dedication, integrity and compassion of this organization. I too assist in international animal welfare along the US border and through my animal welfare work I ran across AKI, they are an amazing organization, working on the ground with local shelters in some very tough places to be an animal. Completely trustworthy nonprofit with a true global vision so help improve the lives of animals working through local groups.
