Giving Tuesday: For Christmas gift-giving, consider untangling a turtle or giving medicine to recently freed bears

Until midnight Tuesday, donations made to help animals will be matched by World Animal Protection by 300%.

The organization does everything from unwrapping tangled turtles from discarded fishing nets to delivering food and medicine to bears who had been kept in captivity.

For $32, a freed bear in Romania will have enough food for two weeks, $60 will pay for medicine for 100 animals if disaster strikes, $150 will give 140 dogs rabies vaccines.

The Humane Society is also doing a matching program. Anyone who gives a donation on Tuesday will have their gift matched up to a $100,000.

Celebs are also in the giving mood when it comes to critters.

Kesha tweeted out that she plans to give to a tiny dog rescue group.
