With your support, DxE has shared the story of dozens of animals saved from abuse
including Noel, a piglet rescued from a factory farm.

Until the end of 2017, all gifts up to $400,000 will be doubled by a matching donor.

Any monthly donation makes you a subscribing member of DxE -- a grassroots network for nonviolent direct action for animals. You’ll receive an annual update on DxE’s progress building a movement for animals.

A donation of $45 a month (the estimated cost to support one rescued animal) makes you a member of the DxE Open Rescue Network, which rescues animals from the most hellish places on earth. You’ll receive quarterly updates and special opportunities to meet rescued animals.

If you are already a monthly donor and you want to change or cancel your monthly donation, please email

You can donate using the buttons above or by sending a check, payable to FRIENDS OF DXE, to the following address: 

3365 Gross Rd
Santa Cruz, CA 95062

Please notify if a check is in the mail so that we can look out for it!  Note that if you would like to request your one-time donation be used for a specific chapter/project, please email (recurring donations are ineligible).
