A new crowdfunding site is now focusing specifically on animal welfare. Sarah Timms is the founder of LoveAnimals.org that gives nonprofits and animal lovers alike a place where they can raise money to care for animals in need.

More about LoveAnimals.org:
LoveAnimals.org is an exciting new nonprofit crowdfunding platform dedicated to helping animals and wildlife. We use innovative technology to dramatically increase donations to animal welfare and wildlife conservation groups who currently receive only 2% of all giving. At LoveAnimals.org: 1) Nonprofits —particularly small, isolated, rural organizations that often lack visibility beyond the communities in which they operate—can easily showcase their projects most in need of funding.
2) Animal Lovers can run crowdfunding campaigns to support their favorite causes or to raise money for veterinary care for pets
3) Donors have an easy and convenient online giving platform where they choose from a wide array of projects and control how their donations are spent. At LoveAnimals.org, animal lovers can take a few minutes, give a few dollars and have a big impact for animals.
