Four Paws International is an absolutely amazing organization. They recently rescued three bears Hai Chan, Thai Van and Thai Giang in Vietnam. One of the bears Hai Chan had been used as a bile bear for 10 years. I would highly recommend supporting this charity.

I have never heard of Four Paws until I read the article in National Geographic about Khalil and Four Paws efforts in Aleppo....the strength and dedication described in that article is truly inspirational. I can only hope that a donation makes a little difference.

FOUR PAWS does a great job with informing the public about animal welfare issues, rescuing animals that do not have a voice, and combating problems AROUND THE WORLD! Three huge things! The unjust treatment of animals is not limited to any specific part of the globe and is not limited to any specific type of animal; I admire that FOUR PAWS has such a widespread impact. It's fantastic that an organization cares so deeply in the just treatment of animals and works toward expanding their outreach to different causes and getting involved in different campaigns every day, while sustaining the projects and work they are already doing. Thanks for making a difference in our world and for caring for animals!

Wonderful animal charity that does great work around the world and they are 100% funded by donations only. I get stories of their great work as I subscribe to Green Monster and The Dodo and see videos and read stories of all the ways they help all sorts of animals in so many parts of the world. A++++++++

I am so impressed with the work that this organization does around the world. There are so many animal welfare charities to choose from, and it's hard to know which ones really do what their mission statement says they do. I truly believe Four Paws International is one of the very best and I'm confident that the donations I make to them are being used to help animals in need. Thank You Four Paws. You're making a real difference. Keep up the good work!

I love the Four Paws mission. I think what they are doing is brave and should be featured on 60 Minuets. And if you don't do it already, follow them on snapchat. Their "stories" always make me smile.

Great organization that advocates for animals around the world, while also providing rescue and rehabilitation in their many sanctuaries that provide some of the best animal care in the world. They take their work seriously and I'm proud to be a supporter knowing my money is truly going towards helping animals in need.

I love hearing and seeing the pictures of animals being rescued and saved either though articles or on Facebook. I understand that most of the work is being accomplished in Europe, but I am thankful that I can be a part of it in America. I look forward to seeing more work with animals being accomplished in the USA - thanks for letting us be a part of Four Paws' work to help animals! It is a wonderful cause that I am pleased to donate to.

Thank-you thank-you thank-you,

To this wonderfully, fabulous organization taking on this noble and daunting challenge of providing food, medical care and a safe living environment away from the abuse and neglect they have known from nasty, ignorant human beings.

Thanks again Four Paws for the care you provide to these precious Felines on a daily bases.
