Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals, Protection of Endangered Species

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 believes that non-human animals should not be subjected to suffering and exploitation by humans because alternatives exist for nearly every traditional "usage" of animals.LCA opposes the use of animals for scientific curiosity, entertainment, clothing, and food. LCA recognizes the use of non-human animals in medical experimentation as both immoral and of questionable scientific validity due to the tremendous biological difference between species. 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

Programs: investigations, education and public outreach, and advocacy and media outreach. LCA's undercover investigations that expose and document animal cruelty form the basis for camapaigns geared toward education and media outreach.

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.

LCA has many current campaigns against animal cruelty. This is an exceptional nonprofit animal organization. A few of their campaigns include the following Exposing the Cruelty of Animal Testing, Stopping the Dog Meat Trade and Bringing an End to Circus Cruelty. LCA has done a lot for animals in need and I will continue to support their efforts.

LCA's undercover investigation into ITR Laboratories, in Montreal, exposed the company's cruel tests, repeated abuse and failure to alleviate the suffering of animals. LCA filed complaints with government agencies and are petitioning the Canadian government to prosecute ITR. LCA was also at the forefront of shutting down Ringling Bros. After years of investigations and campaigns, they were finally able to bring an end to Ringling Bros. animal cruelty. LCA's full time investigation teams, continue to work hard, to end the horrendous cat & dog meat trade in S. Korea and China.

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!!!!!

LCA does amazing work for animals all over the world, and is constantly keeping its supporters aware of its progress and efforts.
There are thousands of animals that would be worse off were it not for the efforts of this Nonprofit organisation, often going where others are afraid to go, and doing what others are afraid to do.

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.

Last Chance for Animals is a wonderful nonprofit organization that fights the good fight for all of our animal friends. It is so great to know that they have dedicated their lives to informing the public of all the unfortunate issues surrounding our animals. It's such a heartwarming feeling to know there are so many other people who love animals as much as I do, and to be a part of the fight to educate people on the sad and horrible stories that are out there today. Victories mean progress, and I am very happy to be part of that. Thank you LCA for all the work you have done, and progress that has been made. It is a never ending battle, but we'll all keep on fighting!
