CFC Cause of the Week: Animal Welfare

We share this planet with many species who enrich our lives and experiences in many ways: the beauty of seeing a doe and her fawn strolling through the trees, the thrill of riding a powerful horse, the comfort of cuddling with your pet. Because animals can’t speak for themselves directly, it falls to us to care for and protect them.

Whether it’s rescuing man’s best friend wandering the streets in search of food and shelter or protecting national treasures such as the bald eagle, animal welfare efforts are often unsung.

From pets to wild creatures, many CFC charities run programs to help and protect these creatures, ensuring they exist for generations to come. Your gift can benefit our friends with fur, feathers, or fins by supporting an animal welfare CFC charity.

Here’s how you can make an impact:

  • $25 shelters, feeds, and cares for an endangered animal, helping the species survive.
  • $125 sponsors a pet adoption at a local humane shelter.
  • $180 supports ten dogs with heartworm, flea, and tick prevention medicine.
