I found out about this wonderful Non-profit Organization many years ago, during Katrina and the BP oil spill. They were there on top of taking care of all the animals, who were in need. They also have gone to other areas of the World helping all animals. All the money donated help also with the dogs roaming in the Detroit area too! A worthy cause, that sure can use some extra money during certain times helping our, with money or to be a Volunteer! Please come to the help of our animals at join WAAS or WA2S group! Thanks to Tom and his group! God bless them for caring! Barbara Kwiatkowska

I first met the founder, Tom McPhee, after he produced the award winning documentary "An American Opera" about household pets caught up in Hurricane Katrina, and have followed his work since. The World Animal Awareness Society is an amazing organization bringing to the public a vision of what happens at the intersection of humans and other living creatures, and helps raise the question of who we are as humans in relation to creatures that share the planet with us. Action must be preceded by knowledge and understanding. The WA2S brings that to us vividly and effectively.

World Animal Awareness Society is a charity that shines light on the many issues that animals face in today's complex world. They do it with the utmost integrity and do not shy away from a difficult or controversial issue. I have donated to this organization on different occasions and have always been confident that the donation continues the steadfast work for the benefit of the animals.

It is with my utmost respect for the World Animal Awareness Society that I invite you to financially support this fine organization, as I have. The WA2S is quite different in their endeavors than other non-profits as they remain neutral in an effort to document all sides of issues related to the human-animal intersection. Knowledge and education are are the keys to their work. Sometimes this can be a difficult road to travel in a world where people are encouraged and even expected to choose a side on which to be. I applaud the WA2S for their courage and drive to tell the true story even in the face of adversity and controversy. The work the WA2S does is important, enlightening and relevant. To see for yourself, visit their website at www.wa2s.org. Watch the WIRE each week for worldwide stories of the human-animal intersection!
