ACE currently recommends Mercy For Animals, The Humane League, and The Good Food Institute as our top charities. All three organizations have strong track records in evaluating their own tactics and making changes based on what seems most effective.
Spending on animal advocacy is highly inconsistent with the areas where animals are affected most. Based on USDA reports, where possible, we have analyzed the numbers of animals used or killed in factory farming, lab testing, clothing industries, and animal shelters.
Certain animal charities can help many more animals with your donation than others can. We have explored charities’ wide range of efficiencies by comparing the effects of a $1,000 donation to a companion animal shelter with a donation of the same amount to an ACE Top Charity.
Animal Charity Evaluators (ACE) is proud to offer convenient methods of donating to our top charities as well as ACE. We can help you customize your giving plans to ensure that you are doing the most possible good for animals.
