Animal Welfare Organizations

As the name suggests, these organizations focus on the welfare of animals.  Although not specifically designated as a charitable purpose, the prevention of cruelty to animals is specifically named as a purpose under section 501(c)(3).  These organizations can be specie specific or for the general health and well being of animals.

Organizations formed to prevent the birth and eventual suffering of unwanted animals by subsidizing spaying or neutering for pet owners who otherwise could not afford the services qualify for 501(c)(3) exemption.  Also qualifying are organizations that promote high standards of care for laboratory animals or for the elimination of cruel or painful traps and devices.

501(c)(3) Definition

In order to be exempt as an organization described in section 501(c)(3), an organization must be both organized and operated exclusively for one or more of these exempt purposes:  charitable, religious, scientific, testing for public safety, literary, educational, fostering national or international sports competition and / or the prevention of cruelty to animals or children.

Specific charitable purposes can include relief of the poor, distressed or underprivileged, erecting or maintaining public buildings or monuments, lessening the burdens of government, lessening neighborhood tensions, eliminating prejudice and discrimination, defending human and civil rights and combating community deterioration and juvenile delinquency.
