rescue of individual elephants, whales, tigers, bears, dogs and cats, such as those showcased in the above video.</p> <p>Thanks to millions of supporters around the world, the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) provides hands-on care to orphaned and injured bears, elephants and rhinos, domestic animals suffering in the wake of disasters, and tens of thousands of dogs and cats in impoverished communities.</p> </div><div class="field field-type-emvideo field-field-embed-video"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="emvideo emvideo-video
