The Harmony Fund is having a baby shower and you’re invited to join us.
We’re experts at caring for spring babies who need a little help and today we hope you’ll lend a hand as we reach out to animals of every kind who need our help immediately. Orphaned baby chimpanzees in the Cameroon rainforest, a mother dog and her litter of pups on the streets of Serbia, a newborn foal and her mama about to be sent to auction in the Midwest (USA) and a litter of kittens born in a violent middle eastern neighborhood. These animals all have two things in common. Each of them needs help and each of them is about to get it.
Your donation will help us bring food, water, veterinary care, shelter and protection from cruelty for thousands of baby animals across the planet. We invite you to take a look at our mission to rescue animals across the planet and please make a donation today. We’d be so grateful if you would also use the Facebook and Twitter links on the right to share with friends. On behalf of the babies, we thank you!

Day 11 The African rainforest has its own symphony. The soft patter of a rain shower on the canopy. The quiet slipper of a mother gorilla and her baby settling down in a nest of leaves for a rest. The warm squawk of parrots gathering overhead. This harmony is shattered in an instant when shot gun blasts…Read More
