Bear in mind, ’tis better to give than to receive.
Tired of giving the same gifts to family and friends year after year? Let’s face it - most of us don’t need more material items. Instead, we want to receive and give gifts that are unique and meaningful, gifts that give back.
So why not choose Really Wild Gifts? Symbolic gifts offered by the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) for the people you know, who love animals.
All of the gifts represent real items that we use to help animals in need around the world.

Where does the money go?
Over the past 30 years, WSPA supporters have helped us change the lives of animals for the better. WSPA is an internationally recognized charity working with its partners around the world to improve the welfare of animals and prevent cruelty wherever it occurs. We promote the passing of legislation to improve protection for animals and provide education and training to improve animal welfare. In short, WSPA reaches out to animals in need and provides solutions to make their lives better.
Every gift you give through the WSPA’s Really Wild Gift program is a symbolic contribution which will help the program you have selected as well as our other animal welfare programs around the world. Your donation will be used where it is needed the most as we strive to create a world where animal welfare matters and animal cruelty has ended.
Will I get a tax receipt for my gift?
Yes! As you're supporting a Canadian registered charity, your donation is tax deductible. Tax receipts are automatically generated only for donations of $20 or more to reduce administrative costs. Once you've selected your gift(s) and made a donation, you will receive a tax receipt for your entire donation amount via email. If your donation was under $20, you can still request a tax receipt by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (toll-free) 1-800-363-9772.
How quickly will my recipient get their e-card?
If you choose to send your e-card immediately, your recipient will receive the card via email soon after you order your gift. If you choose a specific date, your e-card will be sent to the recipient’s inbox on the specified date. You will receive a notification by email once the e-card you sent has been viewed.
Why are Really Wild Gifts available only online?
Really Wild Gifts is an environmentally friendly concept. Moreover, there are no packaging, mailing, or shipping costs for you! If you wish to give a paper card to your family and friends, you can choose to have a printable PDF version attached to your confirmation email instead of sending an e-card. Then you can print it out and give it in person. If you prefer to have a card sent by mail, please visit www.wspa.ca/tribute.
