Okay, I am asking you here because I'm quite young and ignorant about a lot of things so I thought I could ask for your thoughts here


Well I've been giving money to the RSPCA for ages now. However I am currently considering stopping this and giving money to Animal Aid and Dr Hadwins trust instead.

Um does this sound like a wise / ethical step forward?

My reasoning was that RSPCA put a lot of healthy animals down, and also as far as I can see it's more animal welfare than animal rights? But I might be wrong with that.

So yes, just wondering what people thought about these 3 charitys as it's all kind of confusing and I just want my money to go to the best place.

Sorry if this shouldn't be here, or it sounds kinda weird!

RSPCA is definitely very welfarist. I don't know about how many healthy pet-type animals they put down, but they definitely don't do a lot to help farm animals and the like. They are very focused on cats-and-dogs.

I love Animal Aid. They do a lot of veg*n advocacy and (legal) action to help farm animals, animals used in vivisection, AND pet-type-creatures. I am considering donating to them myself.

Don't know anything about the Dr Hawkins Trust.

Do you mean Dr Hadwen Trust? (not Hawkins)

They are the UK's leading medical research charity funding exclusively non-animal techniques to replace animal experiments, benefiting humans

and animals.

I give £ to them--their main office is in our town.

Easy mistake to make. I think Dr Hadwen's is a good one. Joanna Lumley supports them (just a fact of interest)
