Dear friend,

Thanks to you and thousands of other caring animal lovers, we are bringing hope to animals that have been hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. Rescued bears and elephants who have already gone through so much continue to be safe and cared for thanks to you.


As we continue to provide aid to animals in urgent need, our campaigning continues to change the systems that enable animal cruelty and put our planet at risk. Our campaign to stop the global wildlife trade has been getting support from Canadian celebrities, animal protection groups, zoonotic disease experts and ecologists who have joined our coalition to influence the Canadian government to take action. Together, our voice is stronger!


While we continue campaigning to protect wildlife, we are also working to change the broken food systems that enable farm animal abuse. The story about COVID-19 has revolved around the connection of zoonotic diseases to the wildlife trade, but did you know that the same food systems that abuse farm animals are also a major zoonotic risk?


And finally, our 2019 annual report is in. Read about how you helped 3.2 billion animals.


2020 hasn’t turned out how we expected, but together, we are stepping up to this new challenge and achieving incredible impact for animals. Thank you!
