WHO IS THE WSPA? The World Society for the Protection of Animals
WHAT THEY DID IN 2012: Thanks to your generosity, rabies-driven culls no longer pose the huge threat that they once did to dogs in Bali and we’re making good progress towards repeating this success in Bangladesh. Our vaccination campaign has protected hundreds of thousands of dogs against this terrible disease and saved them from indiscriminate culls. This work is now a compelling showcase through which we are convincing more governments – including China – that ending culling and turning to dog vaccination is the only humane and effective way to combat rabies Learn about MORE of the things they've done here: 2012 annual report
Who we are: Our vision: a world where animal welfare matters and animal cruelty has ended.
The World Society for the Protection of Animals exists to tackle animal cruelty across the globe. We work directly with animals and with the people and organisations that can ensure animals are treated with respect and compassion. With your support, we campaign effectively to combat the world’s most intense and large-scale animal welfare issues. We bring about lasting change by:- helping people understand the critical importance of good animal welfare
- encouraging nations to commit to animal-friendly practices
- building the scientific case for the better treatment of animals.
We are local: We improve animals’ lives and prevent animal cruelty by working directly with communities and owners. Working on the ground with local partners for greatest effect, we are active in more than 50 countries.
We are global: We have consultative status at the Council of Europe and collaborate with national governments, the United Nations, the Food and Agriculture Organization and the World Organization for Animal Health – influencers with the power to improve the lives of millions of animals. We are uniquely placed to bring animals into the heart of the most pressing global debates and prove the links between good animal welfare and successful sustainable development.
We are there in emergencies: When disaster strikes, we make sure that animals are not forgotten. Working with partner organizations, governments, humanitarian groups and international agencies, WSPA is the world leader in animal-focused disaster response and risk reduction. With 30 years of experience, sometimes we are the only animal organization able to access disaster-struck regions and make a very real, immediate difference to suffering animals.VIDEO LINK: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4uIrE8cWzko#t=31
