“Until one has loved an animal a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.” – Anatole France 


Animals enrich our lives. Pets provide love and companionship and can improve our physical, emotional, and mental health. Service and working animals make our lives easier and complete tasks that would be infinitely harder without them. Wild animals are a part of the intricate and interconnected world that makes life possible for humans on earth. 

Because animals can’t speak for themselves, it falls to us to care for and protect them. Whether it’s rescuing man’s best friend wandering the streets in search of food and shelter or protecting national treasures such as the bald eagle, animal welfare efforts are often unsung. 

Many CFC charities dedicate their efforts to protecting all creatures, large and small. Your gift can benefit our friends with fur, feathers, or fins by supporting your favorite animal welfare charity through the CFC.
