February's Featured Charity

February's Featured Charity 30 January 2015

Our featured charity for February is International Animal Rescue.

At International Animal Rescue they do exactly what their name says – they save animals from suffering around the world. Their work includes cutting free and caring for dancing bears in India, rescuing primates from captivity in Indonesia and sterilising and vaccinating stray dogs and cats in developing countries. Wherever possible they return rescued animals to their natural environment but they also provide a permanent home for animals that can no longer survive in the wild.

As human populations expand, wildlife comes under increasing threat. By rescuing individual animals belonging to species like the orangutan and reintroducing them into protected areas in the wild, their work also plays a role in the conservation of the species as a whole.

International Animal Rescue have a 'hands on' approach and work to educate the public in the compassionate and humane treatment of all animals. Sound scienti?c evidence forms the basis for their decision-making and determines the course of their rescue operations. In all that they do International Animal Rescue aim to find practical solutions that benefit both animals and people.

International Animal Rescue also work with other like-minded organisations and government departments to strengthen legislation to protect animals from cruelty and neglect.
