This Year’s Charities
Established in 2003, by global adventure travel company G Adventures’ founder, Bruce Poon Tip, Planeterra Foundation is a non-profit organization that has contributed millions of dollars towards projects in areas of social enterprise, healthcare, conservation, and emergency response.
Dogs Aid is a charity set up by three ladies in 1987 to help dogs that were unwanted and abandoned in Dublin, Ireland. Since then we have helped rehabilitate and rehome hundreds of dogs and cats. Dogs Aid has a no destruction policy so we never put a recoverable dog or cat down, and as a result the sanctuary is a permanent home for many forever dogs that are “too old or too bold” to be rehomed. From time to time we also take care of other animals including rabbits, bats, birds, foxes, feral cats, hedgehogs etc.
My Lovely Horse Rescue was set up in 2011 when we could no longer stand by and watch the cruelty that was happening all around us. The equine crisis of 2012/2013 was a direct result of the economic crash. Starving horses were being abandoned all over the country while horrific cruelty cases were becoming more common.
