Dear R.O.A.R. Fund Supporters, The organizations of the R.O.A.R. Fund continue to help animals around the world thanks to your generous support. To maximize the support to these fantastic organizations, GlobalGiving will be hosting a matching campaign for Animal Planet’s R.O.A.R. partners that will run from September 8th - October 7th! We will provide the details of this year’s campaign the first week of September so be sure to check out the R.O.A.R page for more information at that time!
Here is a quick update about the great work these organizations are doing for our animal friends...

Thank you again for your help in making these accomplishments possible!
Happy New Year, R.O.A.R. Supporters!
2013 was another great year for the R.O.A.R. campaign. Since our last update, we hosted another matching campaign for our seven R.O.A.R. partner non-profits.
Between October 14 and November 12, 2013, donors provided more than $130,000 in funding towards American Humane Association, Earthwatch Institute, EQUUS Foundation, Jane Goodall Institute, National Wildlife Federation, Petfinder Foundation, and Villalobos Rescue Center via GlobalGiving. With generous matching funds and prizes totaling $140,000 from the Animal Planet R.O.A.R. program, more than $270,000 was raised to improve the lives of animals in less than a month!
These much-needed funds are going to help save wildlife habitats; give orphaned chimps more room to roam; save the lives of shelter pets in North America; rescue, rehabilitate and retrain horses; save sea turtles in the Bahamas; treat pit bulls suffering from heartworm disease; and provide disaster relief efforts for animals throughout the world.

Thank you, to all of you who helped by making a donation in 2013. We’re looking forward to more great things ahead in 2014!
While we enjoyed the hot summer days with outdoor sports and barbeques we were even more aware of the beautiful environment we live in. It’s a time of year that reminds us that we share the land with animals (domestic and wild) and it’s our duty to take care of the land and the animals we share it with. This is always the focus of our R.O.A.R. partners. Here is an update from some of our partners over the summer:National Wildlife Federation’s Adopt a Wildlife Acre project focuses on bighorn sheep in addition to the bears and wolves its work is more commonly associated with. When domestic sheep come into contact with bighorn sheep, there is strong potential for disease transmission and die-offs of the bighorn population, so National Wildlife Federation negotiates with livestock producers to help reduce such disease transmission. EQUUS Foundation and the United States Equestrian Federation recently inducted a pony named Tumbleweed (1982-2012) into the Horse Stars Hall of Fame. After an initial show career in the small pony hunters, Tumbles, as she was nicknamed, entered a lesson program in Connecticut. The thrived so much as a school horse that she was often used as a therapeutic horse for physical therapy patients. Jane Goodall Institute recently transferred a Tchimpounga chimpanzee named Kudia to its lush island sactuary in the Republic of Congo, Tchindzoulou Island. It took six men to carry her into the forest, where she will now be able to make nests, sleep in trees, run on the damp ground, eat wild fruits, play, and generally enjoy her time in the island forest.You can help too! Next month our annual Matching Campaign returns for our Principle Partners to engage in a friendly competition to build the most public awareness and donations in support of their organizations and the causes important to them. To learn more about the Matching Campaign visit our R.O.A.R. site and learn how you can participate and help a cause important to you!
Dear R.O.A.R. Supporters,
Now one-fourth of the way through the year we are already working at a running pace, implementing new projects and continuing with current initiatives. As you’re aware, the R.O.A.R. Fund provides financial support to our R.O.A.R. charities and to helping animals in need. This year, for the first time, we used Valentine’s Day as an opportunity to remind and encourage our fans to purchase R.O.A.R. branded pet and consumer items to help the R.O.A.R. Fund, since proceeds of those sales goes into the R.O.A.R. Fund. We did this by sending an e-blast to our Animal Planet subscribers with the message to show their pets love by giving them a Valentine’s Day gift!
In addition to helping build the R.O.A.R. Fund for this year, our partners are busy helping animals in other ways. Below are just some of the updates from our R.OA.R. partners, thanks in large part to the support we continue to receive from you!
Since our last update:
Thank you, The R.O.A.R. team
