Animals We Saved Together In 2012
As you gather with friends and family this holiday season, please reflect on all the innocent animals saved in 2012, as a direct result of your incredible generosity to IDA ...
Think of Yuna, crammed in a cage in South Korea's dog meat markets, to be slaughtered for the dinner table. Your support of IDA saved Yuna - then helped her learn to love, trust, AND find her forever home, where she gets daily tummy rubs and loads of fresh air!
Think of Selma and Anita, baby chimpanzee orphans who became collateral victims of Cameroon's "bush meat" trade. Thirsty, hungry, and hurt when we found them, thanks to you these new best friends are now safe and sound at IDA Africa's Sanaga-Yong refuge. No one will EVER hurt them again.
And sweet Jordan, a precious Mississippi pup savagely soaked with an acid-like liquid that ate his flesh. Near death when discovered, he was unresponsive for days. At last his soft brown eyes opened ... and Jordan smiled! Your gifts to IDA helped our Hope Animal Sanctuary guide him out of the dark and toward his happy new life.
These are just four of the thousands of innocent friends who are alive, happy, and protected this holiday in every corner of the globe, because of your concern for animals and your belief in IDA. Please click here to help IDA save more animals in 2013.
Next year marks the 30th anniversary of IDA. With good people like you by our side, IDA has worked tirelessly for three decades to end the exploitation, cruelty and abuse of animals.
IDA is on the job 24/7 this season. It's our promise to you, and to animals who are suffering. And may we also ask one small promise from you? Will you send a donation to IDA this holiday, whatever you can spare, so we can finish the year strong? In return for your continued trust and support, you have our pledge that IDA will press on for the animals. This year. Next year. Every year.
On behalf of all the animals who live in peace and dignity today because of you and those we will help tomorrow, our best wishes to you and yours for a wonderful holiday.
