The Animal Rescue Site focuses the power of the Internet on a specific need – providing food for some of the 27 million unwanted animals given to shelters in the U.S. every year. Over 10 million animals are put to death every year in the U.S. alone because they are abandoned and unwanted.
Each click on the purple „Click Here to Give – it’s FREE“ button at The Animal Rescue Site provides food and care for a rescued animal living in a shelter or sanctuary. Funding for food and care is paid by site sponsors and distributed to animals in need at The Fund for Animals‘ renowned animal sanctuaries (including Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch in Texas and The Fund for Animals Wildlife Center in Southern California), pet shelters supported by the Petfinder Foundation, North Shore Animal League, and other worthy animal care facilities supported by the GreaterGood.org foundation.
100% of sponsor advertising fees goes to our charitable partners.

About the owners of The Animal Rescue Site
The Animal Rescue Site is owned and operated by Tim Kunin and Greg Hesterberg, co-owners of CharityUSA.com (parent company of GreaterGood Network). Long-time friends and activists, they met at the University of Michigan while working on the Michigan Bottle Bill ballot campaign in 1976. In the late 1990s, they recognized that broad consumer-adoption of the Internet offered a new opportunity to raise funds for good causes. As enthusiastic supporters of The Hunger Site, they realized the power of providing busy Internet users with a fast, free and easy way to make a difference and launched EcologyFund.com to give people the means to support wilderness preservation efforts worldwide. They launched The Animal Rescue Site in July 2002.
Tim Kunin is a life-long lover of wilderness, who has canoed and hiked for thousands of miles in the United States, Canada and Patagonia. He started working for environmental causes at the University of Michigan, where he walked 200 miles across the state to publicize the need for recycling. He has a wife, two children and a dog, Scout.
Tim has traveled extensively to visit charity partners and purchase some of the fair-trade products available on our sites. He is convinced that providing a market for products made by rural women artisans is the best method of reducing inter-generational poverty. Travels have taken Tim to Canada, Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, Columbia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Sweden, England, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Morocco, Mali, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Ethiopia, Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda, Mozambique, South Africa, Israel, India, and Afghanistan. Tim has purchased unique products in each of these countries which can in turn be purchased from the web stores here.
Greg Hesterberg was chairman of two statewide consumer and environmental organizations (MaryPIRG and PIRGIM), while in college. After 20 years running a successful publishing firm, Greg enjoys finding innovative ways to make the world a better place. Greg’s two cats for many years, Tony and Junior, have passed on. In November of 2007 Greg adopted two sister kittens, Callie and Chloe. Their younger brother was the last one of the litter who hadn’t been adopted, and Greg couldn’t leave him behind; so now Callie and Chloe spend their days playing with each other, and with their brother Casey as well.
