Animal Welfare Institute (AWI) searches for suffering or inflicted animals and try to save them. AWI was founded in 1951. They have expanded their work to address many other ways of saving animals. The AWI does many things to help animals, but especially companion animals. Many people would want to share their lives with a companion animal, like a cat or a dog, but not all of them get treated very nicely. During air travel most companion animals get lost or injured. For example, when you are in the luggage area to pick up your suitcase many animals get misplaced, stolen, or killed from heavy bags. Also, when a natural disaster occurs you need to take quick action to save yourself, but what about your pet? Many people leave their pets stranded in their dog house, during a tornado, so they get badly hurt or killed. Lastly, lots of dogs get chained to trees outside or poles in the city. Animal chaining is another big problem for pets. All over the US dogs spend most of their time outdoors by chains attached to collars and stalked to the ground. AWI keeps a look out for these kinds of situations and protect the animals when they can. AWI gives lots of suggestions and helpful ways to protect your pet and keep them safe. After they heard how airlines treat their animal passengers AWI set handling and care standards for the transport of animals. Also, when they saw that many pets were being killed because of natural disasters, AWI cautions all people to take their pets with…

When we read the mission statements of most companies there is a underlying theme to many of their statements and it is to conduct themselves in an ethical manner, and while many believe to behave ethically is a human moral factor and cannot be attributed to a corporation there are organizations who try to do just that. In this paper we will explore the ethical values of two such organizations, the Bill and Melinda…
with almost the same kind of aspects? A non-profit organization can be one of the trickiest functions of business as well as be the hardest type to run on the grounds of the underhandedness that it can usually entail. While it may not come with the great financial payday, running a successful non-profit often requires twice the effort, time that it would take, as well as encouragement to run a successful multi-platform business or corporation. Non-profit organizations are for people who are passionate…
