WSPA in the news

About WSPA

WSPA the world’s leading animal welfare organization, working tirelessly to end animal cruelty. We passionately believe that animal welfare matters.

We believe animal cruelty must end - whether that’s cruelty against animals in the wild, living in the community, caught up in a disaster or being farmed.

We put animal welfare on the global agenda and show that what’s good for animals is good for the world.

WSPA is the only international organization with full time, trained staff, who provide an immediate and global response for animals in disasters; whether that’s responding to disasters such as the earthquake in Haiti or Tsunami in Japan. We also help communities take working animals and pets into account when preparing for a disaster.

We run global campaigns that seek to improve the lives of billions of animals. For example, our Collars Not Cruelty Campaign calls for a halt to the culling of 20 million dogs a year, mainly in response to a fear of rabies.

We have been around since 1981. We are active in more than 50 countries in Asia Pacific, Latin America, Africa, Europe and the Middle East and hold general consultative status at the UN and the Council of Europe. We move the world to protect animals.
