Every day, we are bombarded by stories in traditional media, on the internet, or in our email about animals who need help - cases that cry out for rescue, legal justice, or both. There are so many that it overwhelms, and it is hard to figure out where and how you can help.
That's where IDA's Emergency Response Unit (ERU) comes in. We are the animals' electronic first responders and, too often, their last resort. Sometimes the situation calls for offering a reward to solve a case of cruelty - and IDA is not shy about offering and publicizing rewards when they might help. A reward offer has the ability to spotlight cruelty that would often otherwise be ignored by the media - and the community.

Sometimes an abused dog in one part of the country has a home
awaiting elsewhere. Like Betty, the pit bull mix pictured here. We found
her in Mississippi, and found her a home in Oregon.
We can't help every animal, but our ERU examines all requests and jumps in
wherever we have the means and resources to be of service.
Your support of IDA will allow us to rescue more animals, transport
them to homes wherever they may be, and offer more rewards to catch the
