12 Animal Welfare Charities to Donate to in 2017

The New Year is all about setting resolutions to better yourself and your life. One way to better your life is to help those in need, so for animal-lovers, we've highlighted 12 animal-related charities whose efforts have been highlighted by CharityWatch. According to the site, the charities on the top-rated list "generally spend 75 percent or more of their budgets on programs, spend $25 or less to raise $100 in public support, do not hold excessive assets in reserve, have met CharityWatch's governance benchmarks, and receive 'open-book' status for disclosure of basic financial information and documents to CharityWatch." The site grades each charity based on those factors, and below are the top 12 organizations in the animal category, as well as their grades. You can check out each link to find out more about the charity and how you can help them.
