Let’s make change

At World Animal Protection, we’re working toward a world where animals live free from cruelty and suffering. To achieve it, we do everything we can to give animals a better life, here in Canada and around the world.

The change we make for animals is backed by the best available science and we use our strong track record, global partnerships and collaborative approach to move governments, corporations, communities and individual consumers to protect animals. Please join us - let’s work together to change the world, by changing the lives of animals.
