Focus:Animal Welfare
Action Request:Write Letter
Location:United States
I am sure some people are going to think this is a stupid thing for me to have done let alone post.  But, I received the latest issue of Defenders magazine (published by Defenders of Wildlife).  I was disappointed to see that they are selling a LEATHER checkbook cover for their Defenders of Wolves checks.  I was going to insert the letter I sent to them, but for some reason it won't let me.  Anyways, I basically told them that I understood they are protectors of Wildlife & while a cow is not a cougar or a polar bear, it is still a life.  I don't understand how they can call themselves protectors & yet sell something made with the skin of a dead animal.  If you agree, please write them a respectful letter (more of a chance they will actually read it & it won't get automatically thrown away) to:

Defenders of Wildlife
1130 17th St, NW
Washington, DC 20036

or you can email them at:

Thank you,

Jess

You are so right Jess, and That is not all they sell. there are many of these groups out there, that are not what they seem, NSAL north shore animal league is another of many. Be aware if you give to charities, research them. Personally, when I had money, I put it into people I knew that needed help, or to spay and neuter a stray. it is ok to read their magazines, they have good things to say, but it's not always what someone says as it is their actions. good job to notice Jess and NO it wasn't foolish.
