    Why has buying a treadmill inspired you to donate to an animal charity?

    I think RSPCA is the main one really, I'm sure there are others, but I'm not aware of them.

    What concerns you more - protecting wild animals or caring for abandoned animals?

    If you prefer the notion of the latter - I'd suggest the RSPCA
    If you prefer the former - I'd suggest the RSPB [it's more than birds these days, though]

    There are literally thousands for either focus, but those are the two largest contributors in those respective areas.

    Research your local wildlife shelter, like we've got one that focuses on hedgehogs, and perhaps donate to that?

    If anyone insists on donating to the RSPCA, please donate to your local branch - money given to the RSPCA as an organisation goes straight to their £9.5m headquaters. Individual centres (who do the hard graft with the animals) receive no funding from them.

    pick one you think is worth while
    have any pets?
    i love cats, so id give it to CPU
    but PDSA is a good cause, similar to RSPCA but slightly less well known
    they provide free veterinary care to homeless animals and people who cant afford it.

    Donate to http://refuge.org.uk, they actually do something worthwhile and with a lot let less money than other charities based on the protection of more photogenic animals.

    Don't give it to one of the big charities, it'll be swallowed up by admin and advertising. Find a local shelter and donate to them

    Why not to humans? There are so many humanitarian causes that need funding, and people are always far more willing to donate to animals than humans (which baffles me).

    Anyway - what sort of animal causes do you believe in? Is it just that you think animals are cute, or are you trying to help animals that've been abused, or trying to stop cruelty to animals (through cruel methods of farming, for example), or mistreatment to animals overall?
    And is there any oen particular animal that you're more interested in?

    Of all the animal charities, I think my 'favourites' are Compassion in World Farming, WSPA and the RSPCA, or you could find a local animal shelter.
