As a not-for-profit community legal centre focussing on animals and the law, we rely entirely on donations from the public. We receive no government funding or assistance.


Unfortunately due to government policy, donations to oganisations such as the ADO that aim to educate the community about issues affecting animals are not tax deductible. See here for details about the types of animal charities that are eligible for deductible gift recipient status.

We are run entirely by volunteers so if you can make a donation, all of your hard-earned money goes to achieving our aim of using the law to protect animals and advocating for law reform on their behalf.

​Donations can made using the PayPal button below, or by bank transfer to:

Account name: Animal Defenders Office Incorporated

BSB: 062900

Account number: 10842226

If you'd like to be on ongoing supporter and make a recurring donation, you could use our bank details above to make a monthly donation. Or click on the 'select your own amount' option below, choose an amount, and select 'Make this a monthly donation'. Recurring donations made through PayPal can be changed or canceled at any time.
