World Animal Protection moves the world to protect animals. Billions of animals are suffering around the world and every one of them needs help. We act on a global scale to influence decision makers to put animals on the global agenda, inspire people to change animals’ lives for the better and help the world see how important animals are to all of us. We are active in more than 50 countries, and from our 14 offices around the world, we work with local partners, animal welfare organizations, communities, businesses and governments. We help people to find practical ways to prevent animal suffering worldwide. We collaborate with national governments and we have formal relationships with international bodies including the Food and Agriculture Organization, the United Nations Environment Program, the Council of Europe, and the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE). We are the only international animal welfare organization with General Consultative Status with the United Nations. On Saturday, October 1, 2016, World Animal Protection will join thousands of runners to race through some of the most beautiful terrain on Long Island's East End. Support the members of our team and help us achieve our vision of a world where animals live free from suffering.
