Review for Lady Freethinker, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I look forward to my Lady Freethinker email every day. I know that it will give me the means to help animals each day and that's important to me as I was active in animal rescue until 4 years ago when my back started to disintegrate. Being able to help through these emails makes me feel that I still have a little place in rescue and am still helping regardless of my physical abilities.

Review for Elephant Sanctuary, Hohenwald, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Elephant Sanctuary is a wonderful non-profit providing a huge natural habitat and all the care and love these magnificent animals need. And it is a true sanctuary. The elephants have no contact with any humans other than their caretakers. The public can view them by camera online but have no interaction with them.
The Elephant Sanctuary also has a center where they educate visitors about the animals, the care they need and how that is provided.
I believe in the Elephant Sanctuary so much that I joined in the campaign to get Dulary, an elephant at the Philadelphia Zoo, released to the sanctuary. Unfortunately, Dulary didn't have a lot of years at the sanctuary but I was so happy that she got to live as a free elephant with others of her own kind for those years she had left.
If you're in the area, please visit the sanctuary and learn how you too can help.

Review for Forest Animal Rescue by Peace River Refuge & Ranch, Silver Springs, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Forest Animal Rescue's mission has been to provide a sanctuary for rescued wildlife that cannot be returned to the wild. They receive no funds from any state or federal entity, supporting their work with volunteers ad donations from supporters. They have relocated once despite the cost as it was detrimental to the animals to remain where they were. They have weathered storm damage and other vicissitudes and come back stronger.
I have been a monthly donor for several years now and I could not imagine a better use of that money.

Review for Lady Freethinker, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Nonprofit media organization Lady Free Thinker creates real change by:

Publishing urgent news articles and petitions to fight animal cruelty around the world -- we've collected tens of millions of petition signatures sent to politicians, law enforcement and other decision-makers.

Aiding rescue of dogs and cats from the horrific meat trade, including the brutal Yulin Dog Meat Festival, helping save them from being beaten, tortured and cooked alive for profit.
 Conducting groundbreaking undercover investigations into the dog meat trade, dogfighting more. Our recent investigation and campaign against a dogfight breeder achieved the highest-ever sentence for animal cruelty in the entire nation of Chile!

Review for Changing Fates Equine Rescue of Delware, Inc., Laurel, DE, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

While being a small rescue group, with no funds except for donations and their own money, Whimsical Equine Horse Rescue has always been quick to offer their help.
I do rescue transport (dogs and cats) as well as post for shelters and rescues. Any time I get a plea for a horse, I always email Whimsical. They may not always be able, at that time, to take the horse but they are always there to help, whether it be in aiding the owner in resolving a problem which allows him to keep his horse(s) or to assist with finding placement with another rescue.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have always received a quick reply and whatever assistance they can give at the time of the request.

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

I wouldn't except for trying to help them get more funding.

Role:  Donor & I have requested help from Whimsical Equine.
