Programs:

Ending Canada's commercial seal hunt is IFAW's founding campaign. This hunt is inhumane, unnecessary, wasteful, and presents a serious animal welfare and conservation concern. In spite of the fact that the majority of Canadians oppose Canada's commercial seal hunt, and that global markets for seal products appear to be decreasing, the Canadian Government continues to support this hunt financially and set high and unsustainable allowable catches. All four major political parties currently support Canada's commercial seal hunt.

Although I cannot afford to donate for every cause, I do manage to send small amounts to support their efforts when I feel that a situation needs immediate donations (as many do), no matter how small. I appreciate their incredible efforts and the fact that they send me information on the status of various projects that are in progress or have been resolved. They are doing absolutely wonderful and much-needed work to rescue and to see that animals are treated humanely and cared for properly throughout the world. (I truly wish that I were able to provide them with more monetary support.)

I love IFAW because they help ALL animals, whether it be domestic, farm or wild. They truly care about the well being of all animals in ALL parts of the world. I feel so strongly about the positive direction IFAW takes that I am leaving some of my estate to the organization when I depart this world.

This organization reaches all over our world to right wrongs against animals and to insure their freedom. IFAW has made a great impact on all species threatened by Nature and by Man, and continues to protect the future of all living things.

I love IFAW. I've been donating for many years now and am fully supportive of their far-reaching global work that covers many areas. From helping domestic animals to wildlife rehabilitation to worldwide sanctuaries, emergency response in natural disasters and fighting injustices such as the Canadian seal hunt - IFAW is there. They're very informative, telling members how their donations are being used. I'm very proud to be a member of IFAW.

I've been a supporter of the IFAW for over 40 years. As a child I would send my allowance to the organization after seeing a news report on Brian Davies' effort to stop the Canadian baby seal slaughter that was occurring back then. The IFAW helped to end that slaughter. Unfortunately, the Canadians have re-instituted this disgusting, inhumane hunt, and I know that the IFAW will continue the effort to help the seals and all animals around the world that are suffering.

IFAW has been tireless supporter for animals, esp fighting for a ban on ivory. When I was researching what Eco-friendly flooring I could use for my new apt. IFAW was so very helpful in helping me figure out what we're good and not as good choices. Yay IFAW!
