In August 2018 World Animal Protection was in Makueni County, Kenya to oversee a small rabies vaccination drive being carried out in the area.

Make a New Year’s resolution for animals


Animals can’t make New Year’s resolutions to transform their own lives but you can help stop their suffering.

Every year, billions of animals worldwide suffer needlessly. Chickens are factory farmed in appalling conditions, stray dogs are culled in misguided attempts to tackle rabies, and elephants are beaten so they will take tourists for rides.

Here are five great ways you can help us make a difference for animals in 2019:

1. Don’t support entertainment that harms wildlife

Your choices on holiday have the power to reduce demand for cruel attractions and save animal lives. Each year, over 500,000 wild animals are trapped, confined and forced to live and behave unnaturally to entertain tourists. Pledge to be an animal-friendly traveller and help end this cycle of cruelty. You’ll be demonstrating to travel companies and tour operators that there is demand for animal-friendly venues. 


​2. Sign our petition calling on the government to deliver change for chickens

Half a billion chickens are bred in Australia every year. Many of them are kept in cramped conditions, with only the space of an A4 sheet of paper to move around. They are bred to grow so big and so fast that often their hearts and legs give out under the strain.

Right now, we have a chance to change all this.


3. Make a plan to protect your pet in case of a disaster 

In Australia, we love our pets. But sadly, not all of us know how to protect our pets in case of a disaster. Australia is prone to severe weather events including bushfires, heatwaves, floods and cyclones.

Download our free Protect Your Pet kit today and make sure you're there when your best friend needs you most.  


4. Help us protect more animals in need

In 2018, you helped protect millions of animals around the world – from disasters, in communities, on farms and in the wild.

You could help us achieve even more by pledging a monthly gift. Your donation could help save animals affected by natural disasters or support change for animals trapped in the wildlife tourism industry, or fund ground-breaking investigations and research that exposes animal suffering. 


5. Be a voice for animals
