Does the life of an animal mean nothing at all?

Protect animals

Animals cannot tell their stories of suffering. Will you be their voice?

You can end their suffering by calling out cruelty, and influencing governments and businesses to change their practices.

We are World Animal Protection. We exist to end animal cruelty. But we can’t do it alone.

Together, we can give all animals a life worth living.

Does the life of an animal mean nothing at all?

Billions of wild and farmed animals around the world are desperate.

Elephants are being stolen from their mothers and forced to entertain tourists.

Chickens are suffering under intense, confined conditions to become fast food.

Bears are being caged and abused needlessly for their bile.

It’s time to end their suffering. Will you change their lives?

Every animal deserves a life worth living.
