Help Me End Animal Death

What's Your Reaction:

In 2010, nearly ten million warm-blooded animals in America will lose their lives. The majority of these fatalities are caused by death.

Death preys on all animals, large and small, cold blooded and warm blooded, cuddly and repugnant. That is why I started PANDA (People Against Nauseating Death of Animals).

Do you want your cats, Ferdinand and Isabel, to die? If your answer is NO, then donate today to PANDA.

My name is Clip Clifford. When I learned that death was the biggest killer of animals, I searched for an organization working to prevent such tragedies. But no one seemed to care. No one in government or the non-profit world was engaged in funding research or programs to end animal death. That is why I founded PANDA.

To harness the power of the free market, I established PANDA as a for profit entity. I don't care about profit. I care about ending animal death. Because PANDA is a for-profit entity, your contributions are multiplied by the magic of the free market. . Every dollar you contribute will produce four dollars for PANDA. Remember, PANDA receives no support from governments, foundations, or people smarter than an artichoke. We rely completely on people like you.

Established last week, PANDA is the nation's largest and most effective organization devoted exclusively to ending animal death.

OUR MISSION STATEMENT: END ANIMAL DEATH

We work to eliminate animal death by advocating for sensible public policies, initiating research, educating the public about animal death, joining with corporations on behalf of animal life policies, and conducting hands-on programs that prevent animals from dying.

We are the nation's most important advocate for local PANDA societies, providing standards and evaluations, training programs, a national advertising campaign to promote animal death awareness, direct support, and national conferences.

Our track record of effectiveness has led to meaningful victories against animal death in Congress, state legislatures, courtrooms and corporate boardrooms.
