Giving Tuesday is a global holiday movement celebrating and encouraging generosity throughout the world. It began in 2012 as a holiday focusing on giving back and doing good.
Following more traditional holidays like Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving. Its focus is to inspire people around the world to give, whether that be your time, your donation, or the power of your voice in your community.
This Giving Tuesday, we decided to ask our group of pet professionals what charities or organizations they give to. While getting an influx of answers our community, we also did some research on top animal charities. However, what we heard from our pet professionals was: donate to your local rescue/shelter.
While this will be specific to each person and their location we compiled a list of reputable organizations national and local!
Let us know what organizations you donate your time, resources, or money in the comments!
The Warrior Dog Foundation transitions working K9s from an operational environment into retirement. Providing mental and physical rehabilitation, and rehoming options to Military Working Dogs (MWD), Contract Working Dogs (CWD) and Law Enforcement K9s that otherwise would be euthanized.
The Mr. Mo Project saves senior dogs nationwide from living in shelters, or worse, being euthanized. They believe that senior dogs deserve homes too!
Before you make a donation of any kind to a charity, confirm they are a registered 501(c)3 and when in doubt ask questions to the organization about where their funds go. We will continue to add local charities to our list so if you have any you recommend please let us know!
