Part of Animal Welfare
The World Society for the Protection of Animals is the world’s largest alliance of animal welfare organisations. Our vision is a world where animal welfare matters and animal cruelty ends.
Our mission is to build a united global movement by working and partnering with animal welfare organisations (currently over 1000), developing campaigns and projects, education initiatives and providing relief to animals affected by disasters.
WSPA’s work 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.
WSPA does not receive government funding so rely on donations from individuals, trusts, foundations and companies. We work to be the voice against animal cruelty.
