The ShineMaker Foundation’s Animal Welfare Initiative supports efforts to create a more humane world for animals. We provide significant resources to animal shelters, adoption centers, hospitals, anti-poaching programs and wildlife sanctuaries. Read more about the animal welfare and conservation programs we support below:

Animal Rescue & Adoption: 

Marin Humane (Novato, CA)

Established in 2016, the ShineMaker Fund at Marin Humane provides medical coverage and financial assistance for dogs in need of specialized medical treatment prior to adoption. The fund alleviates medical and adoption costs that may make adoption prohibitive, helping dogs of all breeds and ages to find their forever homes.

The ShineMaker Foundation has also provided support for national dog rescue programs at the following locations: 

* All Breed Rescue (Williston, VT) * Social Tees Animal Rescue (NYC)

* See Spot Rescued (Jersey City, NJ) * Second Chance Rescue (NYC)


Wildlife  Sanctuaries & Conservation:

Goats of Anarchy 

Goats of Anarchy (GOA) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, and sanctuary in New Jersey. It is dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of handicapped or abused goats and other animals. The goats are either adopted from the Barnyard Sanctuary or are adopted through contacts on Instagram. The ShineMaker Foundation has provided support towards the expansion of the second Goats of Anarchy Sanctuary.
