Where does the money go?

Over the past 50 years, World Animal Protection supporters have helped us end the needless suffering of animals around the world. We work around the globe to influence decision makers to put animals on the global agenda and to help the world see how important animals are to all of us. Today we're working to help governments and communities to protect and care for their animals.

Every gift you give through the World Animal Gifts is a symbolic contribution which will help the program you have selected as well as our other animal welfare programs around the world. Your donation will be used where it is needed the most as we strive to create a world where animal welfare matters and animal cruelty has ended.

Is my gift tax deductible?

Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible in Australia

What is the difference between an eCard and a download on the shopping cart page?

When you choose the option for an eCard, World Animal Protection will send an email with a link to your nominated gift recipient. That link will take them to a virtual card hosted on a page of our World Animal Gifts website. This virtual card will have the details of your gift and your personalised copy. Basically, it’s easy, you do not need to send them anything. Once you have paid for your gift, we do the work for you.

When you choose the option for a download, we will send you a pdf with details of your gift and your personalised copy. Then it’s over to you to attach that pdf to a personalised email, and send it to your chosen gift recipient. This option allows you to give a more personalised touch with the email coming straight from you.

How quickly will my recipient get their e-card?

If you choose to send your e-card immediately, your recipient will receive the card via email soon after you order your gift. If you choose a specific date, your e-card will be sent to the recipient’s inbox on the specified date. You will receive a notification by email once the e-card you sent has been viewed.

How is the money spent?

In 2015, 87% of funds raised* in Australia went towards protecting animals in our four areas of work. We can ensure your vital donation is making the biggest impact for animals and is helping achieve lasting change.
