Who we are
The World Society for the Protection of Animals is the world’s largest alliance of humane societies and animal protection organisations, representing over 1000 member societies in more than 150 countries.
With 14 offices and hundreds of thousands of supporters worldwide WSPA brings together people and organisations throughout the world to challenge global animal welfare issues.
We have consultative status at the United Nations and the Council of Europe.
What we do
Politically, we campaign to convince governments and key decision makers to change practices and introduce new laws to protect or improve the welfare of animals.
WSPA’s education programmes facilitate a positive change in people’s attitudes towards animals.
Our field and disaster management teams provide direct help to animals that have been abandoned, neglected or caught up in natural or man-made disasters all over the globe.
