Humane Seal: New Charities, New Successes, New Council Member
The Humane Seal website recently added nearly two dozen humane health charities. The site’s expanding directory helps people find charities that fund only human-based research or patient services, without the use of animals. It also recently helped one PCRM member urge a local business to redirect its donation to a humane charity.
PCRM member Phyllis Elliott learned that Centinela Feed and Pet Supplies held a fundraiser and donated the proceeds to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. So she let the store know that Komen supports animal testing. Centinela contacted Komen, and the foundation returned the donation. “The Susan G. Komen Foundation understands our viewpoint and supports our decision in donating the money collected to a breast cancer foundation that does not test on animals,” Centinela wrote to Elliott.
Centinela has plenty of options, including some of the new Humane Seal charities:
The Humane Seal is administered by PCRM and other member organizations on the Council on Humane Giving, including the Animal Defense and Anti-Vivisection Society of British Columbia, the council’s newest member.
