Happy New Year!

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.

You can view the full details of the matching campaign here: http://www.globalgiving.org/leaderboards/roar-2013/

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!
