FOUR PAWS is the global animal welfare organisation for animals under human influence, which reveals suffering, rescues animals in need and protects them. Our vision is a world in which humans treat animals with respect, empathy and understanding.
FOUR PAWS is a strong, global and independent voice for animals under direct human influence. We work for a world in which animals are treated with respect, compassion and understanding. FOUR PAWS offers sustainable solutions for animals in distress.
We reach people's hearts and change their consumer behaviour. We bring about changes to legislation in animal welfare and we create strong partnerships with other organisations to ensure long-term solutions for animals in need. We rescue and help wild animals kept in captivity, fight for the well being of farm animals and pets as well as strays and work for the right of animals to live a dignified life in an environment suited to their species.
Our vision is a world where people treat animals with respect, empathy and understanding. Our work is based on scientific expertise, sound research and intensive national and international lobbying. Our individual campaigns and extensive educational activities to promote awareness give animals an urgently needed voice. We run our own aid projects (rescues) where we give animals a chance for a new life.
