Animals are sentient beings with emotions that feel pain, happiness, fear and so on. Rescue groups and no-kill shelters do the best they can to help minimize suffering of these beings and allow them to live the best life they can. As we care about animals and feel this is a noble cause, we felt the least we could do is have a webpage listing some legitimate organizations that would greatly appreciate donations of any amount that people were able to provide. If you already give to a local shelter, great! If you are interested in helping an animal rescue group but did not know where to donate, please check out these links to specific organizations that you can donate directly to. We do not get anything for providing these links, your complete donation would go to these groups. We are sure they would be most appreciative of any help you could provide.

The link to the wildlife rehab page of our local wildlife rescue group states: "From orphaned baby squirrels to owls with fractured wings, we strive to provide quality care with the hopes of rehabilitation and release back to the wild." We know from personal experience that this is true and can confidently recommended this as a worthwhile cause to donate to. The following link is to the wildlife rehab page while includes a donation link for those that are able to help.
