Founded in 1969, the International Fund for Animal Welfare saves individual animals, animal populations and habitats all over the world. With projects in more than 40 countries, IFAW provides hands-on assistance to animals in need, whether it's dogs and cats, wildlife and livestock, or rescuing animals in the wake of disasters. We also advocate saving populations from cruelty and depletion, such as our campaign to end commercial whaling and seal hunts.
Our vision: Our vision is a world where animals are respected and protected.
Our mission: IFAW rescues and protects animals around the world.
Our promise: We promise supporters and policy makers effective animal protection solutions delivered with intelligence, compassion and integrity.
Our belief: IFAW believes in the intrinsic value of animals and that we have a responsibility to protect them from suffering and commercial exploitation.
