Animal-Kind Internationals Founder Karen Menczer has visited The Hope Sanctuary Barbados and all our staff have been impressed with Karen Menczers professionalism, compassion and efficiency. She has helped our organisation tirelessly. Animal Kind International deserves the support of all animal lovers who want to make a difference.

This is a unique organization in that it reaches developing and underserved communities in countries that lack in humane education and fair loving treatment of dogs and cats. I only hope that this organizations continues to grow and partners with rescues in the United States to encourage more humane treatment of animals internationally. Karen is incredible and I would love to accompany her on a trip to a shelter that AKI helps fund. Thank you and please let us know how we may help more!

I love so much about this organization - the transparency with which donations are treated, the many stories and pictures of what the organization does, and the real results that support for AKI brings to animals in limited-resource communities around the world. The organization's memorial page is also a really nice way to show sympathy for those who have lost a pet.

I recently made memorial donations to this wonderful organization when family members lost their beloved pets. I was so happy to have an opportunity to turn a sad event into something positive, and I think it helped my grieving relatives as well. Karen is wonderful about sharing feedback and photos - you can see for yourself that your donation is making a real difference in the lives of animals, and supporting those individuals who care for them in sometimes very difficult circumstances. What a great resource for animal lovers!

We have been working with AKI for several years now to help with stray dogs of Bosnia. We know how much effort goes into their operations and every donation will go to the right hands. Thanks Karen and AKI for everything you for those who have no voice.

We are the Foundation Henk Abrahams, an organisations which helps stray animals as much as possible. By giving them food, water and if needed, medical care by a vet. We also spay/neuter all the animals we feed on the street. Thanks to Animal Kind International, we have been able to continue this work. Especially regarding the donations we get through AKI and which we use for spay/neuters, some food and vaccinations. Without the help of AKI we really wouldn't have been able to do so much. Fact is that the business community in my country, the Republic of Suriname, is not so willing to donate for animals in need. We are very fortunate to have AKI as a partner/donor.

Everything I have seen and read about this organization says it is wonderful. I am thankful that they support animal caregivers all over the world. It is never enough because the need is so great, but they do what they can. They provide plenty of pictures of animals before and after and show how money is being used. I have no questions when donating to them and hope they continue to grow and spread.

Animal-Kind International is one of the few organizations that raise money for animal welfare organizations in poor countries. But not only that, it's probably the only one that gives 100% of money raised, and the only one with close ties to partner organizations and that can do the due diligence to ensure funds are used for animal welfare and to report to our supporters.

After working overseas for more than 30 years, I've seen a lot of orgaizations that want to help people and animals, but few that really have an impact. AKI really does do what they say they do-they raise visibility of the work of existing animal welfare organizations ad support the priorities of the animal welfare organizations, rather than being top-down and telling the organizations what to do with the funds AKI sends.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of board members?

AKI fills a huge gap for animal welfare organizations in poor countries. There are so few foundations and other grant making organizations that support animal welfare outside the US, Canada, EU, Australia. We help fill that funding gap (although so much more money is needed than what we are able to raise so far). I'm proud that we have such great relationships with all our partner organizations, as well as with other animal welfare orgs in poor countries, so we are able to let donors know just what their donations are doing, and we're helping some very worthy organizations that are not partners [yet!] to become stronger.
