Who we help
Animal Charms has chosen to focus on the smaller, locally run and operated, no-kill shelters and rescues across the United States. The goal is to keep the donations as close to the animals as possible. There are thousands of people working very hard to help as many animals as they can and every donation helps. A donation as small as $50 can buy 100 pounds of dog food or 8 bales of hay.
