Animal Watch thanks our donors, employees and volunteers for helping create and sustain our programs and services and thanks you, the user, for making our work worthwhile.

Animal Watch also thanks the countless and often unheralded individuals who devote their time and often their lives to helping our animal friends. You make this world a better place!

Animal Watch hopes that its work somehow reflects the respect, love, admiration and gratitude we have for the other species with whom we share this planet, who suffer so dearly at human hands.
