In Defense of Animals (IDA) is partnering with Tempo to offer a debit card that helps save animals worldwide. Each time the IDA debit cards are used, the international non-profit animal protection organization will receive a portion of the standard card transaction fees.

“It’s a painless, great way to help IDA raise much needed funds for our chimpanzee sanctuary in Cameroon, Africa; our veterinary clinics and ambulance service for the thousands of street animals of Mumbai, India; and for our investigative and sanctuary work in rural Mississippi,” said IDA founder and President Elliot M. Katz, DVM.

The IDA debit cards are available online and can be used anywhere Debit MasterCards are accepted. The cards also provide cash-back and ATM withdrawal access to the cardholders’ existing checking accounts.

Founded in 1983, In Defense of Animals works to protect the rights, welfare, and habitats of animals internationally.
