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.

My passion is for helping animals, both in the US and internationally. I am proud to say that IFAW does an incredible job of rescuing, aiding and educating people about the POSITVE change that a single individual can make and the many changes that IFAW makes as a group. I feel very good contributing to their efforts and hope to see many more wonderful reports of all the animals who have been helped by their generous efforts!

I have recently moved to a very rural area just south of the Great Lakes. I am shocked to see dogs living outdoors in the bitter cold winter. It is fantastic that IFAW is addressing this problem by building houses for the Canadian dogs. My only regret here is that I can't support their global effort to help animals more!

IFAW is an exceptional organization dedicated to animal rescue, recovery and adoption worldwide. IFAW helps care for, feed, and heal animals in countries devistated by war, drought, flood and famine and worst of all - human neglect and cruelty... I'm proud to be a donor of this extraordinary international non-profit.

I am very proud to support the work of IFAW. We hear so much about the work done by organizations in the US. But the need is also great outside the US. It is good to know that organizations like IFAW are looking after the needs of animals all over the world.

I keep my eye on a lot of charities which target animal welfare, conservation, and abuse. IFAW does all three at a remarkable level of efficiency, compassion, and thoughtfulness which makes it by far the most common sense, pro-animal charity I can imagine. They will continue to get my donation dollars and my eternal gratitude for being such great humans.
