Animal cruelty, unfortunately, is no news. People around the world treat animals badly, hurt them for no reason, or even do so for entertainment.  World Animal Protection stands firm against animal cruelty and fight against it. Read below to see what they do on a daily basis.

We are World Animal Protection. We were known as WSPA (World Society for the Protection of Animals). Our vision is a world where animal welfare matters and animal cruelty has ended. Together we can move the world to protect animals.

We end the needless suffering of animals.
We influence decision makers to put animals on the global agenda.
We help the world see how important animals are to all of us.
We inspire people to change animals’ lives for the better.
We move the world to protect animals.

Bears deserve respectWe end the suffering of animals

Why? Because animals have a right to live free from pain.

How? By tackling cruelty and suffering worldwide.

Today we’re working on projects like this worldwide — helping governments and communities to protect and care for their animals.

Did you know? 3,000 dogs used to be culled every year in Cali, Colombia for fear of rabies. We persuaded the government to sterilize dogs instead. The number of strays fell by 25%. Dog bites reduced. And when the project ended, 10,000 people paid to sterilize their dogs, rather than returning to culling.

We help the world see how important animals are to all of us.

Why? Because millions of people depend on animals.

How? By demonstrating the vital relationship between people and animals.

Today we’re campaigning for a Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare, and over 2 million people, 330 animal groups and dozens of governments have already pledged their support.

Did you know? In 2013 we successfully moved the United Nations to include animal welfare in resolutions for the first time — a victory that will lead to policy change worldwide.

We inspire people to change animals’ lives for the better.

Why? Because we all have the power to improve animal welfare.

How? By moving communities and governments to stop animal suffering.

Today we’re focusing on ending bear baiting in Pakistan — just one example of our work to end cruelty by helping people everywhere to respect and protect animals.

Did you know? We’ve been moving the world to protect bears for more than 20 years. In India, Turkey and Greece, we’ve helped to end bear dancing — for good.

We put animals on the global agenda.

Why? Because a sustainable future for the planet can only be achieved if both animals and people are part of the solution.

How? By being part of the big global debates on how we live within the world’s resources now and in the future.

Today we’re helping shape the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals that all countries need to adopt from 2016, to ensure animal protection is not forgotten.

Did you know? In 2013 we persuaded UN Member States to adopt animal protection language in two General Assembly Resolutions (on agriculture and disaster risk reduction). For the first time this places animal welfare at the heart of policy and decision making at the United Nations.
