What gives us the right to treat animals so badly?

Animals around the world are desperate. It’s time to end their suffering.

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

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

Does the life of an animal mean nothing at all?

Animals cannot tell their stories of suffering.

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

Together, we must be their voice. Together, we can give all animals a life worth living.

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