Dear Manfred,

What a year it’s been for animals!

In 2015, you sent more than 2.3 million messages to decision makers, shared 1.3 million times on social media and spent over 1,300 hours on the phone with legislators, agencies and corporations -- all to demand better care and protection for animals. You’re our hero, and theirs!

Thanks to you, Manfred, 2015 was our best year yet for animals.

This year was our highest impact year ever.

The biggest names in the food industry -- like Walmart, McDonald's, Starbucks and Panera -- are no longer going to confine or cage animals in their supply chain.

All chimpanzees are now listed as endangered under U.S. law, effectively ending invasive experiments on chimpanzees in this country.

Ringling Bros. committed to ending its use of elephants in circuses.

The European Union closed its border to products of the commercial Canadian seal slaughter, and the number of seals killed was reduced by 90 percent.

Manfred, these landmark changes for animals could not have happened without you, and animals need your continued support in 2016 to keep this up. Will you make a special gift to ensure progress for animals doesn't end here?

This year was huge for wildlife. Washington voters approved a ballot measure to end the trafficking of ten endangered species, California banned the trade in rhino horn and elephant ivory and the U.S. and China both made commitments to end the trade in ivory. After the killing of Cecil the African lion, we got more than 40 airlines to agree to stop shipping lion trophies and other big game into the U.S. or anywhere across the world.

And it doesn't stop there. Together, with our affiliates, we’ve been on the ground as the number one provider of animal care and rescue in the world. Our teams are there to respond when animals are in need -- whether it’s responding to Hurricane Joaquin in South Carolina, or helping with spay and neuter programs, developing anti-cruelty laws and training law enforcement in Puerto Rico.

In 2016 and the years to come, we’ll lead the charge on so many issues that I know are important to you. Can animals count on you?

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for everything you do for all animals.

Sincerely,

Wayne Pacelle, President & CEO
