AnimalPreservation.org is dedicated to the preservation, compliance, and promotion of the animal sanctuary, rescue, and shelter internationally. We aim to increase education and awareness of animal rights / conservation issues while heightening online profiles and funding for these organizations through a variety of web tools and strategies.

What you’ll find here are accredited animal organizations dedicated to animal welfare as well as providing sanctuary and haven. The intended goal is a one stop index for users to quickly peruse and garner succinct information on organizations through an engaging format and educational layout. We hope you’ll enjoy what we have to offer and consider making donations to the organization(s) of choice, volunteering, or somehow otherwise making your voice heard for animal welfare worldwide. Thanks for visiting.

* inclusion into our index requires accreditation by a reputable agency.
