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.

I am an animal advocate and proud to sponsor IFAW. Knowing that aniamls are helped all around the world. It gives me a loving feeling in my heart to know an animal is being helped in Canada or any country in need. When an animal suffers I suffer... I have five adopted dogs and three cats and I love and protect each one of them. I wish that all animals could find a loving home and safe haven and also a warm dog house to protect them against the cold elements. IFAW will do everything in their power to utilize our donations in the best manner possible, thats important to the animals and to me as a donor.

This non-profit is amazing, I recently donated toward the campaign where they were building dog houses up in Canada to protect dogs from the freezing temperatures! This is so thoughtful & giving.... of course I had to support them toward this cause. They are a wonderful organization & I'll keep donating for years to come :)

For decades, IFAW has been at the forefront of animal conservation. It was the first organization that protested against the Canadian tradition of clubbing baby seals to death, for their pelts. And ever since, they've been advocating for animals, not missing a beat. They run a great organization, doing the most important work in the animal conservation world.
