We are World Animal Protection.

Our vision is a world where animals live free from suffering. We are working to help people to see how important animals are to all of us.

We are determined to influence decision makers to put animals on the global agenda and inspire people to change animals’ lives for the better. Today we’re working on projects to end animal suffering by helping governments and communities to protect and care for their animals.
