How your monthly gift changes lives

You have the power to stop the cruelty and help vulnerable animals like Roxana lead safe, natural lives.

Roxana was rescued after spending 12 miserable years confined in a small cage at the Bârlad Zoo in Romania. When she was younger, she was placed in an enclosure with three other bears but was bullied by one of them. After living in fear, she was confined to a small cage instead where her mental health suffered tremendously.

Thanks to Animal Protectors she’s now recovering at our partner Libearty Bear Sanctuary. When she arrived at her new home, Roxana was nervous and traumatized from living in captivity. Over time she’s began to come out of her shell and isn’t pacing in stress circles as much as she used to.

Surrounded by the lush sanctuary forest, she now lives in peace, eating apples and taking dips in the pool.

“In addition to all the good World Animal Protection does to end animal suffering, it’s a great resource for educational information as well. I learn a lot from their newsletters, such as understanding food labels when shopping and tips on ensuring my vacation isn't putting wildlife at risk.”

Giving monthly by direct debit has far less administrative costs and transaction fees than giving any other way. Monthly giving offers a steady and predictable source of funding and in turn we spend less on fundraising marketing costs with confidence in the continued monthly support. 

Why give monthly?

Monthly donations help for us to plan our work. It means showing up for animals when they need it most.  
If you want to make a commitment but don’t want to give every month there are options to have a pre-authorized payment set up quarterly, bi-annually and annually.

For monthly donations the minimum amount is $5.00. This ensures that you can still make an impact on the lives of animals after the typical fees associated with pre-authorized payments.
