Mission: Last Chance for Animals (LCA) recognizes that animals have the ability to experience pain, and as such they deserve certain basic rights protecting them from pain caused by humans.

LCA''s work advocates conscious and informed lifestyle decisions, and the organization is committed to disseminating truthful information about societal animal abuse to improve the treatment of animals.

Target demographics: put an end to animal abuse.

Geographic areas served: all parts of the world

I researched this charity, Last Chance for Animals, before I donated. They have the highest charity ratings on give.org and charity navigator. I called their office and spoke to their campaigns director who gave me information on their current investigations and campaigns. I was really impressed with the quality of work they are doing and on a lower budget than most animal advocacy organizations. Their work is impressive and the organization is led by one of the pioneers of the animal rights movement, Chris DeRose. I recommend everyone to support this organization if you love animals. They are doing great work! I signed up for monthly donations.

This nonprofit does tremendously great things for animals. animals that are running on empty tin the sense that they are close to being I would use the term eradicated. meaning no home but a shelter and thats not like a home shelters try but ask an animal there is no place like a forever home. if people would foster spay and neuter as well as shop dont adopt we wouldn't have a crisis of unwanted pets. I urge you to vote for this organization aas its is LAST CHANCE FOR ANIMALS thank you sheila and Michael massoni Hackensack nj

animals are in great peril whether its from hunting for the sake of hunting or abused in situations like mills for breeding and selling or cruel treatment on farms or plants processing food from livestock. we must educate respect for animals as humans need animals for the ecosystem when animals perish next is plants then humans .

This organization is fearless in their pursuit of animal abusers - from the illegal acquisition of pets and illegal sales of those pets to laboratories to the Yulin dog meat festival, they do everything in their power and more to stop the abusers. Chris DeRose is one of the most dedicated people I have ever known. He works tirelessly to save animals of all species. I've been a supporter for over 3 decades and will continue to be a supporter for as long as there is a need.

Last Chance for Animals is a great non-profit that I have been supporting over the years. I trust them to actually help animals from animals being used in laboratories for experiments, the horrible dog meat trade in Asian countries and help expose the horrible treatment that circus animals endure. LCA has had many successes in changing laws and bringing attention to much needed animal welfare issues through undercover videos and other investigations to expose the truth being done to innocent animals behind closed doors. LCA has a 100 score rating out of 100 and a 4 star rating out of 4 stars on Charity Navigator website. So I totally trust they are spending their money wisely.

I have been donating to Last Chance For Animals for several years now. I believe this organization does wonderful work to help both identify animal abuse and actually rescue animals from it. They have a wonderful website which provides a lot of information to the public. It is entertaining as well as very educational. I will continue to donate to this organization whether the award is won or not; but in my opinion, they should win and be given the chance to keep doing the work they do with such a reputable sponsor like yourselves!!

This year LCA released footage from their investigation at ITR Laboratories Canada ("ITR"). LCA's investigation revealed how researchers subjected beagles, macaque monkeys, and pigs to cruel tests and repeated abuse, and failed to take proper measures to mitigate the suffering that the animals endured. LCA has filed official complaints with multiple Canadian government agencies and is petitioning the Canadian government to properly prosecute ITR.
They also fight against the brutal dog and cat meat trade in South Korea and China. With full-time investigation teams on the ground and an active campaign on ending the slaughter of dogs and cats, LCA will stop at nothing to end this brutal industry.
Support them they are doing a great job !!!

Last Chance for Animals began as a small, but devoted group concerned about the welfare of all animals. They have done so much for animals in need -- risking their lives, going to jail for the cause and working day and night. I was a member for a short time in the 80s but I moved away and I now am a senior and I'm only able to give small donations to them. I wish I could do so much more. They were the most dedicated people I have ever known, doing whatever they could and now can to keep animals from being abused physically and/or mentally and always needlessly. Always for $$$$$. There are so many abused animals in our world please help Last Chance for Animals in any way you can if you have concern for all of our animals on our planet that desperately need help. LCA certainly gives their all!!!!!
