50 Top-Rated Animal Welfare Organizations Listed During GreatNonprofits’ National Campaign

GreatNonprofits  announced today that 50 organizations have qualified for the  2011 Top-Rated Animal Welfare List at the close of a month-long campaign in partnership with  the National Animal Interest Alliance, the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries, the Humane Society of the United States, the Animal Legal Defense Fund and Best Friends Animal Society.  Organizations receiving ten or more positive stakeholder reviews during the month of August qualified for this top-rated list.During the campaign, a total of 121 nonprofits were rated and reviewed by thousands of clients, donors and volunteers across the country. The 1301 reviews submitted during the campaign highlight the innovative ways that animal welfare organizations are changing the world, as well as provide the nonprofits with valuable feedback and compelling evidence about their work, which they can then show to their donors.RedRover, an organization that received 19 reviews during the campaign, enjoys participating in GreatNonprofits’ monthly campaigns because the stories shared show people the type of work they do to help animals and the way they do their work, which then provides potential donors the confidence that their donations will be going to a trustworthy organization.

“The biggest benefit we gained in participating in this campaign was becoming a top-rated animal welfare organization,  said President and CEO Nicole F. of RedRover. “There are so many animal nonprofits to choose from and highlighting a list of organizations that have positive reviews is a great way for donors to start to do their homework. 

All of the qualifying organizations have shown the vast ways in which nonprofits can help protect and raise awareness about the necessity of conducting spaying and neutering campaigns, as well as passing the appropriate legislation to defend animals around the world. User reviews of personal experiences and examples also help nonprofits ensure they are working in the right direction.
