The Animal Welfare Fund by CanadaHelps

A new, easy way to help animals in need.

Help animals in need with a single donation.

45,000 animal cruelty complaints are made in Canada every year, and many more animals in Canada are living in harmful situations. Thousands of vulnerable animals need your help to survive and thrive. The Animal Welfare Fund supports Canadian charities focused on the wellbeing of domestic animals and wildlife by keeping animals fed, sheltered, healthy, and protected.

You can support critical work being done to protect and care for abused, neglected, orphaned, sick, or injured animals. Charities in the Animal Welfare Fund are making a difference by placing animals in loving homes and sanctuaries, providing rescue and rehabilitation services, protecting and advocating for wildlife, and so much more.

Your donation will be pooled with gifts of others like you to help achieve wide-reaching effects and make a real impact. Donate today and help those in need. Plus, get an official charitable tax receipt to qualify for tax credits!


What makes up the CanadaHelps Animal Welfare Fund?

The Animal Welfare Fund by CanadaHelps includes more than 410 registered animal charities supporting animals.

The charities in this Fund are selected through an algorithmic approach, taking the charity’s area of focus, mission, and description into account. This Fund includes animal shelters and rescues, humane societies, wildlife sanctuaries, and more.

To ensure donations reach charities easily and efficiently, charities must be one of the more than 20,000 charities registered to receive funds electronically from CanadaHelps. Funds will be transferred quarterly, subject to a minimum of $10 per charity. We regularly update the list of charities in this Fund.
