The purpose of the foundation is to invest the assets of the foundation and use the proceeds of these investments to help organizations and individuals provide a better life for animals. Tammy and I believe that all animals deserve a fair chance to enjoy life. Animals such as dogs and cats deserve special consideration as they are here in great numbers primarily due to the action of humans and may not be well equipped to survive in the wild. We are often amazed by the work of animal care organizations and their often unpaid volunteers who work tirelessly to provide care and find homes for displaced animals. These are the causes we try to support. The website is designed to make people aware of this work and encourage more people to play a role in improving life for animals. We accept donations but also encourage individuals to contribute to other animal welfare organizations. We provide links to those we have found particularly caring and effective.
