International Aid for the Protection and Welfare of Animals

IAPWA was founded in 2009 to provide protection and improve the welfare of animals in need. Today we are an international animal welfare charity driven to provide a lifeline for animals around the world.

Through our projects and partnerships, we’re committed to creating a long-term change for a better future for all animals. Our work is vast and includes providing a lifeline to strays through our veterinary teams and rescue facilities, educating communities about the importance of animal welfare, working with authorities to develop and manage humane neutering and vaccination programmes and finding forever homes for dogs and cats through our local Adoption Programmes. We provide care to thousands of animals worldwide every year and rely on the support of generous animal lovers like you to help us achieve our mission.
