Mission

Millions of Americans are concerned about the welfare and needs of animals and Animal Charities of America is the only alliance of its kind that focuses on animal issues. Our member agencies are screened annually to ensure that they meet the highest standards of substantive program services, management and fiscal responsibility. ACA is managed by a volunteer board of directors. Because Animal Charities of America is a volunteer organization, it is considered to be the most efficient and lowest cost alliance of its kind. Donors can be sure when giving directly to an ACA member organization that the charity they've chosen is a legitimate and worthwhile national nonprofit whose costs and programs have been reviewed carefully.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our vision is a world where every animal is cared for and valued. Since 1994, Animal Charities of America and our partners have worked to shut down puppy mills, train guide dogs, pass laws restricting animal abuse, fund anti-poaching programs, rehabilitate wounded wildlife, support animal sanctuaries, provide low-cost spay-neuter services, rescue and re-home pets after natural disasters, and more.



Animal Charities of America is proud to partner with a wide range of nonprofits that reflect the values of animal lovers to fulfill our mission of supporting and protecting all animals. We advance the rescue of animals from cruelty, neglect, abuse and exploitation; promote no-kill shelters and vet care for domestic animals; protect endangered wildlife; and support the training of service animals that enriches the lives of differently abled people by raising, training and providing service animals for independent living, stability and companionship.

There are many fundraising venues available to donors as they seek established and responsible nonprofit organizations to support. Animal Charities of America educates contributors about the work we and our partners do to help all animals whether farm domestic, service or wild. Workplace giving is a valuable employee benefit, fostering social responsibility, enabling connection with worthy organizations and engagement with one another.

Beyond traditional workplace giving, Animal Charities of America assists generous donors in giving to the causes that mean the most to them by offering more effective ways to give online, provide recurring sustaining support, employer matching and legacy giving opportunities, and mobile device giving capabilities, through corporate, government and municipal fund drives.


Animal Charities of America is supported by the most experienced and respected professionals in the nonprofit world. As a national organization, we offer integrated support to partners throughout the United States as well as to those organizations that are community based.

Partner charities are thoroughly screened to guarantee that they provide exceptional Program Service and fiscal responsibility. Donors can be confident that their generosity is funding the most trusted animal charities assuring the greatest impact. These standards of review meet and exceed the guidelines of Charity Navigator, Guidestar and the Combined Federal Campaign.



Animal Charities of America continues to connect generous donors with exceptional nonprofits through direct donations as well as corporate and workplace fundraising opportunities.

Since 1994, Animal Charities of America has raised over $148 million dollars. We are a critical source of revenue for over 150 national and local partners. Through workplace giving, every year our organization connects millions of employees with animal related charities. As the working environment continues to change, so have we continued to identify and develop giving strategies responsive to the remote workplaces, shared jobs and distributed locations of our generous donors.
