Charities to Support this Christmas


'Tis the season for giving, but sometimes it can be a challenge to come up with gift ideas that are going to make a difference. While you could offer your friends and family who have everything something generic like a towel set or candle, you could also do something worthwhile in their name. Donating to charities on the behalf of people can mean the world to not only the charity but to the person who you've honored by donating. Reduce waste and make your money go further by giving a monetary gift to any of these pet charities below.


Did you know that one dog and her resultant litters can create up to 67,000 new puppies in six years? That's a lot of new dogs that may not get a loving home! SpayUSA is a worthwhile charity that ensures that spaying and neutering are never out of reach of any pet owner. Your donation can reduce the number of unwanted puppies.

National Mill Dog Rescue

The National Mill Dog Rescue charity's goal is to rehome discarded breeding dogs into loving homes while spreading education. Do you know from where your puppy originated? Breeding dogs produce litter after litter, often in squalid conditions. The charity aims to reduce the instance of this occurring while making sure the general public is aware. 

American Pit Bull Foundation

Pit Bulls are, unfortunately, not always given the best start in life, and there is a lot of misinformation about the breed. If you donate to the American Pit Bull Foundation, you can assist in general public education and responsible ownership, and help owners with Pit Bulls facing medical bills. All donations go straight to the dogs in care.

The Grey Muzzle Organization

Older dogs are adorable, sweet, and pawsitively delightful, but they also require a lot of care. That's where Grey Muzzle comes in. This organization helps by providing funds to non-profit groups, shelters, and sanctuaries to improve the lives of senior dogs. If you want a sweet old dog to have the best retirement, then this is the charity for you!
