The World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) seeks to create a world where animal welfare matters and animal cruelty has ended. Active in more than 50 countries, we work directly with animals and with the people and organizations that can ensure animals are treated with respect and compassion. We campaign to combat the world's most intense and large-scale animal welfare issues, and are the world leader in animal-focussed disaster response and risk reduction. Locally, we improve animals' lives by working directly with communities and owners. Globally, we hold consultative status at the Council of Europe and collaborate with national government and the United Nations to introduce animal welfare into the most pressing global debates.
