http://www.bullseyerescue.org/ Their core value is to provide education about the amazing pit bull breed to the general public, current pit bull owners, other rescue organizations and shelters throughout the Puget Sound region. Bulls Eye is comprised of a network of foster homes and volunteers working with pit bull friendly, Puget Sound region shelters to give a handful of pit bulls a second chance.
http://www.barnowltrust.org.uk/ The Barn Owl Trust is a small charity working very hard to conserve one of the most beautiful birds on earth. Anyone who has ever watched a Barn Owl hunting at dusk has surely been touched by the experience but sadly these magical birds have become increasingly rare - and the reasons are all man-made. Lack of food due to intensive farming, the loss of roost and nest sites, road mortality, and a host of other factors are to blame.
The Trust was founded by a small group of volunteers who believed not only that they could reverse this decline through practical conservation work, but also that they could use people's interest in the Barn Owl to increase environmental awareness.
