GreatNonprofits, GuideStar, and Charity Navigator announce the launch of the 2011 GreatNonprofits Animal Welfare Campaign to identify top-rated organizations working to improve the welfare of animals around the world.

GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of user-generated ratings and reviews of nonprofits, has partnered with several of the most celebrated organizations in the field for this campaign.

Partners in the campaign, which will run for the month of August, include the National Animal Interest Alliance, the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries, the Humane Society, and the Animal Legal Defense Fund.

The 2011 Animal Welfare campaign aims to recognize the leading nonprofits within this diverse sector of nonprofits working towards improving the welfare of all animals, which ranges from providing shelters to improving legislation as well as raising awareness about animal conservation.

Any animal welfare nonprofit that has at least 10 positive reviews by August 31, 2011 will be recognized on the GreatNonprofits Top-Rated Animal Welfare Nonprofits List.

Participants in the campaign can expect to receive increased exposure to donors and volunteers and increased visibility in their communities and the media.

The user reviews gathered by GreatNonprofits are written by anyone with personal experience with a nonprofit, i.e., a donor, volunteer, board member, client, or member of the public.

Over the past year more than 1 million people visited GreatNonprofits to read and write these reviews.

About the Campaign

The animal welfare campaign will run throughout the month of August. Reviews appear on GreatNonprofits.org, GuideStar.org and CharityNavigator.org and can be written on all three sites.  Nonprofits with 10 or more positive reviews will be included on the GreatNonprofits Top-Rated Animal Welfare Nonprofits List.  Review submissions must take place from August 1st through August 31st, 2011.
