How we are run

We work both globally and locally in 47 countries to have the biggest impact for animals.

World Animal Protection is a registered charity in the UK. We have offices in 12 countries and an international office in London. 

We make the world better for animals by collaborating with national governments, the UN, the Council of Europe, the Food and Agriculture Organization and the World Organisation for Animal Health. At a local level, we work with communities, the private sector, civil society and governments across 47 countries. 

Everything we do is powered by our amazing supporters. We’re a global community that’s passionate about protecting animals, and we won’t stop until we succeed.
