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.

International Fund for Animals Welfare, Inc. is an organization which devotes so much effort, resources to help wild life welfare, they have been doing an amazing job in the animal wild kingdom. I am a strong supporter of this great organization. I have named them as one of the beneficiaries in my life insurance. I urge you to support their work and donate monthly, even as little as $5 , 7. or 8. It helps tremendously, with more public support, this organization can do more for the animals welfare, animals cannot speak for themselves, so we human need to stand up for them, be their voice and savers.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

just keep doing what they are doing for a long time already.

This organization is fantastic. They will show you results for what you donate, and more importantly, truly care about the animals well-being. The work they do is the harder path, but trying to solve the right problems. They care about domestic cats and dogs to rare species in Africa/India, in particular Rhino/Tigers/Elephants who are amongst the most vulnerable.

IFAW's efforts range from addressing the plight of abused/neglected domestic animals to protection for wild animals worldwide - a voice for all animals everywhere! The situation for the survival of rhinos, elephants and lions is particularly dire at this time, and this organization is a key player in the fight to bring these and other endangered species back from the brink of extinction.

Love helping out when I can. The work they do for all animals is so crucial. God created animals and only he should be allowed to take them away. They need to be cared for, not destroyed or tortured!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

none, they are great!

I donate to several animal charities, I have to cause I can't save them myself. It just rips me apart when I see how people treat animals, so I donate and I do it monthly. I look at it as it is like my bills I am responsible for, I feel responsible for the well being of these animals.
This charity is good in so many ways, it does what I can not. I love the news I get monthly or more often every time another animal or group of animals is saved it is a time to rejoice.
IFAW keeps me informed and up to date on everything so I feel I was part of the rescue. I say thank you so much for being one of the best animal charities, I feel privileged to be able to help in my small way.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Keep up the excellent work, thank you

We donate to several animal welfare organizations, but are most impressed with the IFAW, because they let you know how your contributions are being put to good use! We really enjoy hearing about the success stories that became possible because concerned people cared enough to donate. They use the money to do such great work with animals, and adhere to a blueprint that all non-profit organizations should follow! We admire their work and take great pride in knowing that our contributions to them are helping make a difference in this world!

Can't think of any.
