This month sees the launch of our appeal to change the world for animals over the next five years.
For over thirty years, WSPA and our supporters have protected hundreds of thousands of animals from cruelty and suffering, securing their good welfare in law and in practice.
Behind the big numbers are the stories of individual animals, each saved from harm by the generous compassion of our supporters who share our passionate belief that cruelty to animals and their needless suffering is, quite simply, wrong. Animals matter and WSPA are determined to make that statement a reality – for all animals and felt by all people.
The greatest suffering, the greatest good
Over the next five years, WSPA will focus on four global programmes, each with the capacity to tackle the most significant causes and effects of animal cruelty and suffering in the world. In deciding on our animal welfare programmes, we were keen to prioritise those issues that cause the greatest suffering, either in the number of animals affected or in the intensity or duration of their suffering.
Animals matter to WSPA and to you
We know how much animals matter to our supporters. By joining forces with WSPA, you greatly increase the impact you can have in helping create a future world in which cruelty to animals has ended and animals matter to everyone.
Four key areas
To create such lasting change for animals, WSPA needs to raise and to invest over £60 million across four programmes over the next five years. A vast sum, but it’s in fact the equivalent of about £30 a year from every WSPA supporter in the world. Suddenly, what seems impossible alone seems achievable together. Here are details of our four new global programmes that, together, will allow us to change the world for animals and in doing so, create a better world for us too.
Animals in communities
Millions of dogs are brutally and needlessly killed each year, many in the name of rabies control. By supporting WSPA’s appeal to change the world for animals, you could help us save dogs’ lives.
Animals in the wild
A gift to WSPA could help us tackle the illegal trade in wild animals and to end the cruel captivity of bears.
Animals in disasters
WSPA supporters could help us feed and care for animals in the aftermath of a disaster and help communities protect their animals by preparing against future disasters.
Animals in farming
With billions of farm animals enduring physical and mental trauma every day of their shortened, barren lives, we must make their protection a priority.
Can you help us change the world for animals?
WSPA needs your support to change the world for animals over the next five years – and to ask you to help get us started with a donation. If every WSPA supporter donated £30, that would be enough to fund the entire cost of everything we hope to achieve for animals over the next five years.
