The American Humane Association, the Wildlife Conservation Society and the Performing Animal Welfare Society are a few examples of top-rated animal charities. These charities spend at least 75 percent of their budgets on programs and maintain financial transparency.
The charities work to support a range of areas in the animal world. For example, the American Humane Association, which was founded in 1877 and has establishments located nationwide, works on a domestic level and strives to protect pets and farm animals as well as children from abuse. It also provides education and training platforms to better engage the community. The Wildlife Conservation Society works on a global level to conserve ecosystems as well as protect endangered species.
