#GivingTuesday! Please donate and help us save animals!



For Giving Tuesday, Donate to Prevent Cruelty and Give Animals a Better Life!


Wondering where to direct your end-of-year donations? Please consider giving to our 501(c)(4), Social Compassion in Legislation (SCIL), to support our political advocacy work, and/or making a tax-deductible donation to our 501(c)(3), Social Compassion, to help us continue our animal rescue work, humane education and much more.

Your past charitable contributions have allowed SCIL to pass groundbreaking legislation that saves countless animals’ lives worldwide every year. It also steers regulations that affect animals and fights harmful legislation, acting as a voice for the voiceless.

With your help, our 501(c)(3) educates the public about the importance of protecting all animals and stopping abuse in all forms. It also spearheads spay and neuter efforts and rescues animals that have been abandoned or need medical help.

Click here to read more about our past campaigns and the laws SCIL has sponsored to advance animal rights, including:

  • SB 313, which ended the use of wild animals in circuses
  • AB 273, which stopped recreational and commercial fur trapping
  • SB 1138, which mandated that plant-based meals be available in hospitals and prisons
  • SB 1249, which made California the first state to prohibit the sale of cosmetics and personal care products tested on animals
  • AB 485, which banned the sale of mill-bred dogs, cats, and rabbits in retail pet stores

We plan to continue fighting for animals in 2023 and beyond. But we can’t do it without your help. Any amount you give will go directly to supporting our lifesaving work and helping us create a more compassionate society.
