Goals / Remit

World Animal Protection is an animal welfare not-for-profit organisation with over 40 years of global experience in programmatic work and campaigns to improve animal welfare and ending animal cruelty.

The organisation has offices in 15 countries around the world, including Sweden, Netherlands, UK and Denmark. For years World Animal Protection have experience working with stakeholders at different levels, including all EU Institutions, the World Organisation for Animal Health OIE and key United Nations agencies such as the Food and Agriculture Organisation and the World Health Organisation. We work with several governments and regional political blocks such as ASEAN, the African Union and of course the European Union.

Many of our supporters and members are based in Europe, including The Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden and the UK, where our International office is based.

Our four programme areas define our main campaigns, which are aligned with our strategic approach. We work with animals in farming, animals in communities (mainly stray dog populations), animals in the wild and animals affected by disasters. Our approach combines education and mobilisation efforts, catalysing and up-scaling sustainable solutions and having a strong advocacy stream of work. We base our work on robust evidence and, where needed, strong science, while ensuring that we contribute to global debates on public health, agricultural systems, environment and sustainable economies.
