If you love animals please join the WSPA Animal Rescue Team

The World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) has been promoting animal welfare for more than 25 years.  WSPA’s vision is
of a world where animal welfare matters, and animal cruelty ends.  

The work of the WSPA is concentrated in regions of the world where few, if any, measures exist to protect animals and is focused
on four priority animal welfare areas:

  • Companion animals – responsible pet ownership, humane stray management and cruelty prevention.
  • Commercial exploitation of wildlife – intensive farming and the cruel management and killing of wild animals for food or by-
    products.
  • Farm animals – intensive farming, long distance transport and slaughter of animals for food.
  • Disaster management – providing care to animals suffering as a result of man-made or natural disasters, and thereby
    protecting people’s livelihoods.

With consultative status at the United Nations and the Council of Europe, WSPA is the world‘s largest alliance of animal welfare
societies with a growing network of more than 900 member organizations in over 150 countries.

Politically, the WSPA has campaigned to convince governments and key decision makers to change practices and introduce new
laws to protect or improve the welfare of animals.

With generous donations from supporters, WSPA has helped people set up new animal welfare groups, enabling local communities
globally to help drive improvements in animal welfare.

Understanding that human ignorance is a major factor in the continuation of animal cruelty, WSPA’s education programs facilitate a
positive change in people’s attitudes towards animals.

If you love animals, please join WSPA’s Animal Rescue Team and help save animals from cruelty.
