About Malea McGuinness
The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated… I hold that, the more helpless a creature, the more entitled it is to protection by man from the cruelty of human kind.
Malea McGuinness helps to raise money for Animal Charities & foundations through her live performances in communities she performs in. Malea works with staff of these facilities to keep educating herself on cutting edge methods of providing rehabilitative care for animals who were abandoned or rescued from abusive environments. In partnership with organizations such as The Wisconsin Humane Society, The Arc of San Juan, and The Kauai Humane Society, Malea helps generate awareness and generate funds for programs that prep animals for adoption and volunteer efforts in support of animal rights. She works in her free time @ The Amanda Foundation in Beverly Hills where she tries to implement techniques learned in other facilities as well as shares her experiences with fans & animal lovers globally.
