What We Do
American Red Lion The American Red Lion Disaster Fund works to reduce the number of animals suffering or abandoned by disasters by identifying and assisting with funds and supplies to the credible, boots on the ground local animal welfare organizations including shelters, farms, and hospitals who are immediately providing for the urgent rescue, care and placement of animals struggling to survive during these disasters in the affected region.
There are over 25,000 Animal Welfare Organizations, 10,000 Animal Hospitals, and 1.3 million livestock farms in the United States and people keep donating to the same charities over and again because they do not know whom to donate to.

How We Do It
We are very careful researchers. There are over 25,000 Animal Welfare and Animal Rights nonprofit organizations and 10,000 Animal Hospitals in the United States, but not everyone is honest, skilled, and most importantly on the front lines helping.
Furthermore, after major disasters, individuals are known to set up fake websites claiming to be a charity as they prey on people's emotions.
