Who we are
WSPA’s vision is of a world where animal welfare matters, and animal cruelty ends. Commercial exploitation of wildlife – intensive farming and the cruel management and killing of wild animals for food or by-products.

Farm animals
WSPA is working to end factory farming by raising awareness, establishing local coalitions and promoting and demonstrating humane alternatives. Factory farms are also characterised by forced growth rates, which cause the animals terrible suffering.

Universal Declaration of Animal Welfare
A UDAW would work for human health – animal welfare contributes to sustainable farming systems and the improvement of human food safety.

Inside the factory farms
Yet factory farmers continue to cage or tether millions of animals in barren conditions, treating them as machines in a production line.

Whaling
With no option for humane slaughter, WSPA calls for a stop to all commercial whaling. Visibility, sea swells and movements of the boat and whale make it impossible to assure a lethal shot at sea.

Model Farm Project
The model farms also provide WSPA’s university partners with a place to research best practice. WSPA has tested and proved that humane farming methods allow farmers to make a profit and to develop their local traditional farming methods.

Our beliefs
Each individual animal has intrinsic value, and that it is the responsibility of humans to ensure that their welfare is respected and protected.

Give Online
Whether helping care for farm animals in the aftermath of a natural disaster, implementing humane stray control programs, campaigning to end unnecessary acts of cruelty, or raising international awareness of animal welfare, WSPA is making a lasting difference in the lives of animals throughout the world.

Shop better, eat better
The conditions in which farm animals live and die can be improved by our purchase power. Free range and organic food also has many health benefits for you, and is better for the environment.

Poverty and factory farming
Factory farming was once promoted as a way to provide cheap and plentiful protein. Factory farms are highly mechanized, which means they contribute to rural unemployment and migration to urban areas.

Providing care for hurricane-stricken animals
The Miskito farmers rely on animals for their livelihoods, yet 96% of their crops and many of their animals were lost.

A symbol of hope: protecting Myanmar's animals
As one of the few international non-governmental organizations allowed to enter Myanmar in the weeks that followed, WSPA’s team of vets was always destined to make a huge difference to the worst hit communities.
