ILOILO, PHILIPPINES BASAR is a haven of pets & farm animals rescued from abuse & abandonment & a venue to educate people about Love & Compassion for the animals & Compassionate Vegan Living

A proposed safe haven, a sanctuary and rescue for abused, unwanted, homeless pets and farm animals in the Philippines. Ben Animal Sanctuary And Rescue was conceived in 2014 in the midst of alarming animal abuses around the country due to our values, culture, belief and typhoon prone geographical location.

Construction has begun in January 2015. Unfortunately, after the Concrete Deep Well of the Water System was completed, I undergone an expected prostatic surgery last March 30, 2015 which obliged me to temporarily stop the construction and drained my budget for the sanctuary to my hospital bills.

Early this month my doctor confirmed my nearly full recovery medical status, thus made me decide to resume the construction of the sanctuary along with the El Niño Phenomenon now drying up the country.

After cutting trees and sizing them to desired lumber for animal shelters, securing much needed funds has been done through cross posting and fundraising to pursue the construction and secure more animals from global warming...

In as much as we know that life is too hard almost everywhere around the world with due preparations for the fast approaching Christmas holidays and winter season, we still believe that there are still friends around who really understand how animals are treated and have something to share and help for the animals in the Philippines...Please like this Page,share it to your friends, help and support these voiceless pets and farm animals urgently needing help from abused and abandonment....

This is the first part of BASAR's Water System, the Concrete Deep Well. The white Asterisk on the upper left picture represents the location of the Deep Well. On the next picture above center is the our old shallow Well being replaced by bigger and deeper Concrete Well for storing enough water for the animals. Below are pictures during the progress of the Well constructions. Now the Concrete Deep Well is ready for use manually until the Pipe Fittings with Electric Motor and Water Pump are connected to the Elevated Concrete Water Tank which are yet to be constructed...


Our mission and vision

About us

The Brooke is an international animal welfare organization committed to improving the lives of working horses, donkeys, mules and their owners. You can help these folks help these poor animals.

Our mission and vision

The Brooke is determined to do whatever it takes to ensure that the right elements are in place for working horses, donkeys and mules to be healthy and happy in the long-term.

Our mission

The Brooke works directly and through partners to do whatever will most improve the welfare of working horses, donkeys and mules through the alleviation of existing suffering and the development of equine welfare practices and facilities to prevent and reduce suffering in the future.

Our vision

The Brooke's vision is of a world in which working horses, donkeys and mules are free from suffering. The Brooke delivers practical programs and provides support, advice, funding and infrastructure to its global network of employees, partners and supporters to make that vision a reality.

Promoting animal welfare friendly practices

The Animal Welfare team ensures that our field teams are trained in using animal welfare friendly practices and all understand and put into practice our Minimum Standards of Animal Welfare and guidelines.

The Five Freedoms

Field teams work with communities to help them to identify animal welfare problems and how to improve them.  We are constantly looking at definitions of animal welfare to include new approaches in our work.  We currently use the ‘Five Freedoms’ as our basis to define what every animal should have:

  • Freedom from hunger and thirst – having access to fresh water and a diet to maintain full health and vigour.
  • Freedom from discomfort (physical and thermal) – providing an appropriate environment including shelter and a comfortable resting area.
  • Freedom from pain, injury and disease – prevention or rapid diagnosis and treatment.
  • Freedom to express normal behavior – providing sufficient space, proper facilities and company of the animal’s own kind.
  • Freedom from fear and distress – ensuring conditions and treatment which avoid mental suffering.

Who We Are

Animals Asia is devoted to ending the barbaric practice of bear bile farming and improving the welfare of animals in China and Vietnam. We promote compassion and respect for all animals and work to bring about long-term change. 

Founded in 1998, the Animals Asia team has been rescuing moon bears since 1994 and is the only organization with a bear sanctuary in China. Our founder and CEO, Jill Robinson MBE, Dr.med.vet. h.c., is widely recognized as the world’s leading expert on the cruel bear bile industry, having campaigned against it since 1993.

Today,  Animals Asia has rescued over 400 bears, caring for them at its award-winning bear sanctuaries in China and Vietnam. From its small beginnings in Hong Kong, Animals Asia has grown into a respected international NGO with over 300 staff and offices in Australia, China, Germany, Italy, the UK, US and Vietnam.

Our work

Our work to end animal cruelty focuses on three major programmes:

End Bear Bile Farming

Animals Asia works to end the barbaric bear bile trade, which sees over 10,000 bears – mainly moon bears but also sun bears and brown bears – kept on bile farms in China, and around 2,400 in Vietnam.

Cat and Dog Welfare

Animals Asia works to end the trade in dogs and cats for food in China, and lobbies to improve the welfare of companion animals and promote humane population management.

Zoos and Safari Parks

Animals Asia campaigns for an end to abusive animal practices in zoos and safari parks in China, and works closely with governing authorities to improve animal management and increase awareness of the welfare needs of captive animals.



The Fox Project


The Fox Project is a charity dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and eventual release back to the wild, of the Red Fox in SE England. Registered charity No. 1044928
To care for sick or injured foxes and abandoned fox cubs. Working with a large team of volunteers we provide care, treatment and rehabilitation back into the wild.

Some householders do not like foxes in their garden, so The Fox Project operates a specialist fox deterrence and advice service, which is both more effective and more humane than outmoded "pest control".
Company Overview
The Fox Project is a charity dedicated to the Red Fox. We operate in parts of Kent, Surrey, East Sussex, West Sussex and South East London, dealing with sick and injured foxes and abandoned fox cubs and working with a large team of volunteers to provide for their care, treatment and rehabilitation back into the wild. We are a registered charity - No. 1044928

All foxes that come in to our care are given names rather than numbers. This is not for sentimental reasons. Our fox's names are associated with some aspect of their rescue, perhaps a street name, an association with the person who called in the rescue etc. It is much easier to remember and refer to POLLY from KETTLE LANE (i.e. Polly put the kettle on!) rather than number 107892 opposed to 108729.

Lets Adopt! Global

Saving animals. inspiring humans.

Let’s Adopt! started as Facebook-based group motivated by one single goal: to help animals in need in Turkey. It had no affiliation whatsoever with any associations, foundations, NGOs or similar institutions in Turkey, or abroad.

The genesis to its creation is the belief that all of these have badly failed Turkey’s desperate animals to this day. You can build bridges but the empty space remains – some things never change.  The animal protection system in Turkey was not working. Period.

Let’s Adopt! was and continues to be about building new bridges – one animal at a time, one individual at a time –  to connect a new generation of animal activists in the world with one another and leave the old guard behind.

In recent years Let’s Adopt! has expanded exponentially.  Reaching to rescue animals throughout the globe.  With chapters in Germany, Indonesia, Bulgaria, Canada and several others, Let’s Adopt! is establishing a network-of-good where animals will be given the best opportunity for rescue, immediate care, and survival.  We incorporated in December of 2011 in the State of Massachusetts, USA as a charitable non-profit organization with the goal of continuing this growth and furthering our mission.

There are a number of conditions for adopting an animal through the Let’s Adopt! network.

1.Prospective adoptants should have at least one other animal under their care and be able to demonstrate their ability to take care of animals through their history with this already existing animal.  Animals are individuals with thoughts, feelings, and personalities.  Only by having an existing animal can Let’s Adopt! feel comfortable knowing that the adoptant is aware of this.

2.Should a prospective adoptant live in a home with a garden, he or she should guarantee that the animal to be adopted through Let’s Adopt! will live inside the home as opposed to the garden only.  To live with the family. To be a part of the family.

3.Individuals who adopt an animal through Let’s Adopt! agree to create a photograph album later on that contains images from the new life of the animal to be shared with all members of the network on an ongoing basis and to be published on our blog.  It is the glue that connects and inspires the community.

4. Let’s Adopt! animals will be fed a species appropriate raw diet.   The commercial pet food industry has proven to at best not fully benefit the health of the animal, at worst physically harm animals.  With Cancer as the leading cause of death for companion animals in industrialized countries, one common factor remains the commercial pet food diet.   With the ever expanding outsourcing of pet food and ingredients to unregulated production markets, a new danger has emerged.  Once Let’s Adopt! saves an animal we make ever effort to ensure its long, healthy and prosperous life.  Raw is the only way to do this.

5. A Let’s Adopt! home must be a non-smoking home.   Second-hand smoke kills hundreds of thousands of companion animals every year.   Most of Let’s Adopt! animals have been close to death prior to rescue.  We do not put them back in that situation.

6. No de-clawing, de-barking, or any other kind of cruel behavior modification procedures or methods are allowed.  Ever. Period.

7. Additional conditions may apply in individual cases.

There are also important ground rules in Let’s Adopt!’s modus operandi that we would like all prospective adoptants to be aware of:

  • Let’s Adopt! is entirely about rescued animals and animals in need. It does not assist individuals who are seeking to adopt a particular breed, or an animal with particular characteristics. It is those same mindsets that have put many of our animals in dire situations to begin with. Inquiries of this sort will simply be ignored.
  • We are accountable for all our animals for life.  We rescued them; we will protect them; we will watch over them.  To some this may seem intrusive.  To us, and all of our adoptants, it is comforting.

Please write to us to learn more about our activities: info@letsadoptusa.org







Love Animal Sanctuary in Thailand

hero-sanctuary-thailand-303x279The Love Animal Sanctuary in Thailand houses over ninety animals, all formerly unwanted or abused, domestic pets, farm animals and wildlife. Twenty six cows, bulls and buffalos who escaped the slaughter house, also reside here.

The Harmony Fund has been helping the sanctuary’s founder Marianne Willemse for the past year. Marianne is over 60 now and spends her entire pension every month to pay for workers & facilities. When we are not able to raise enough money to help, she goes to the markets at night to beg for donations for feeding all the animals. Any donation to help the animals here is tremendously appreciated.

Bless you all.      http://animalrescuechase.com/donate/love-animal-sanctuary-in-thailand

Arad Romania

About Us

We are a family which loves animals and all of us, together, have one purpose: TO HELP THEM!  

We set up this non-profit animal protection association, which functions only through the financial support obtained through donations and sponsorships, with the purpose of being close to these mute creatures whose eyes are asking mercy and help from us. We have always loved animals and tried to protect them. From 1995, we changed headquarters from Arad to the outskirts of a village, near a town. As we had some land around the building, we could rescue abandoned dogs and cats, which we maintained from our own resources. In 2007, we managed to legally set up APAM, hoping that there are people who love animals and want to help them through us, assuring them that the financial and material effort will only be used for animals’ rescuing and maintenance.

They've got loads of love to give and all they need is a best friend like you! So why not sponsor one today.With over 340 stray and abandoned pets in in and outside our shelter at any one time, we really need your help. We don't receive any government funding and we are totally dependent on the generosity of people like you.

If you do sponsor one of our shelter dogs, upon your request, we will be happy to send you any updates on the dog you choose to sponsor. You can cancel your sponsorship at any time or if you don't want to give an amount on a monthly basis, feel free to make a one time donation only.

Animal Rahat is a unique program that aims to help some of the most neglected animals in the world—the bullocks, donkeys, and other working animals in India.Changing Minds, Changing Practices

Animal Rahat is a nonprofit organization that was created to make a difference in the lives of working bullocks, donkeys, ponies, horses, and other animals. Animal Rahat is set up in the sugar-mill district of Sangli, India, and in the neighboring town of Solapur, where staff members provide free aid to bullocks who work in sugar mills, donkeys who are used in the brick kilns, horses who pull carts, and other working animals. Animal Rahat aims to alleviate the suffering of these animals by giving rest to the lame and offering relief to the sick and injured. The group’s work also benefits the animals’ owners, who are often too poor to afford the sustenance necessary to maintain animals’ health and strength, pay for veterinary care in times of illness and injury, or give their animals time for rest and recuperation.

Teaching Proper Care and Nutrition

In just one year, the Animal Rahat camp, which was started in the Sangli market yard with the blessing of a local government official, spread to an area of 60 square kilometers (which includes Miraj, Madhavnagar, Kupwad, and Sangli). Many thousands of working animals gather there, including some 2,000 at one sugarcane mill alone. In and around Miraj and Sangli, the group has installed concrete water tanks to provide water to thirsty, often overheated working animals; sand pits to prevent shoulder injuries when farriers push animals over to shoe them; and shelter to afford animals shade from the burning sun. Other activities include educating cattle owners about the basic needs of working animals —including proper food, vital supplements, shade, adequate rest periods, and clean and sufficient water—as well as health management, balancing carts to avoid injury, loading carts properly (not overloading them), and maintaining proper harnesses to avoid wounds. The group has also conducted vaccination camps for foot-and-mouth disease, inoculating thousands of animals against this dreaded ailment. Animal Rahat has also stopped cruel bullock races, enlisted the help of local police stations in averting cruel acts of violence, and confiscated countless whips, nose ropes, barbed wire goads, horn paring equipment, and other cruel devices used to add misery to working animals’ lives. At festivals and fairs, which involve ponies and bullocks being run at speed for two days or more with little rest, staff members provide rest stations, water troughs, and vitamins and minerals for cart drivers to administer to their exhausted animals. We have also established rest stops for many animals who are sick or cannot keep going.

Bear Aware in British Columbia

Getting a formal program started can happen in many different ways. In all instances, support from a local Conservation Officer, the Municipality or Regional District and a group of individuals or service group is encouraged. The minimal requirements vary with the type of program you initiate but each different model requires a strong commitment from the community and financial support. 

Program Materials

The Bear Aware program includes a tool kit that contains a number of print and electronic materials designed to aid in effective program delivery. Included are a program delivery manual, various handbooks, a PowerPoint presentation, posters, stickers and/or tattoos and brochures.

Bear Aware Program Models

In 2010 there were 19 communities delivering a variety of the Bear Aware models to educate the public throughout the province of BC. Running a Program in a community is dependent on having sufficient funds to do so.

There are three different program administration models:

  1. Community Model
  2. Volunteer Model
  3. Wage Subsidized Model

Under the Community Model a community provides all costs related to delivering an education program in their community. The Subsidized Model requires a community to submit an application for consideration to BCCF Bear Aware for the wage subsidy of a Bear Aware Community Coordinator (BACC). The Volunteer Model relies almost entirely on volunteer efforts to raise funds and deliver an education program.

Welcome to Colonel Angels Bulgarian Street Dogs

Colonel Angels is a newly registered Bulgarian charity  and is run by a small yet very dedicated team.  Annie and Candy are based in  south central Bulgaria  in the Rhodopi mountains and are running  a free neuter program for all dogs  (owned and on the street) in the town of Smilyan and its outlaying villages.  They have organized an educational programme in the  Smilyan school  which is proving to be very popular with the children. Dog welfare in Bulgaria is unfortunately very poor and Colonel Angel's aim is to improve the conditions for owned and stray dogs whilst educating the public  and the children.  Every child deserves the chance to own and love a dog instead of being taught that it is dirty and vicious, being the common attitude in Bulgaria. We have many projects to help to encourage people to improve the welfare of their dogs. Please have a look on the Projects page for more details.

If you wish to find out more information about what we are doing and how you can help please feel free to browse the website. Any questions  you would like answered  or information you would like to share please contact us.

The Dogs of the Malaysia


Kudos to the volunteers who rescued as many as they could to date.   
The residents of Pulau Ketam sent some 300 stray dogs to exile on a remote island where the harsh conditions almost certainly guarantee a horrible death. Of the 300 dogs sent there, more than three-quarters are presumed to be already dead. I traveled to the island with Sabrina Yeap of Furry Friends Farm and managed to save only one dog on this reconnaissance trip. The rescued dogs cannot be transported on the regular ferries. Almost nobody will lift a finger to help without a fee. This is understandable. The locals are already shaking their heads in disbelief that there are outsiders who want to save the animals they so casually discarded. Instead of pointing fingers and antagonizing them, we need their co-operation to help save the unfortunate creatures. In the process, we also hope to educate the islanders on better treatment of animals. It would be an impossible mission if we didn't win their hearts. Fellow blogger's, you can also help by embedding the appeal poster above to your blog and linking to http://www.mycen.com.my/rescue. We are aware it is a monumental task and appreciate all forms of support, assistance, suggestions, encouragement and your prayers.

The Dickin Medal Of Honor was instituted in 1943 in the United Kingdom by Maria Dickin to honor the work of animals in war.  Maria Dickin was the founder of the People’s Dispensary for Sick Animals (PDSA), a British charity that provides care for sick and injured animals of the poor.  Maria established the award for any animal displaying bravery and devotion to duty whilst serving with the British armed forces or civil emergency services. The medal was awarded 54 times between 1943 and 1949 to 32 pigeons, 18 dogs, 3 horses and a cat for their heroism during World War II.

We are a non profit organization whose primary function is to save working dog breeds from being euthanased in council pounds and shelters and find new homes for them. We cover the entire east coast of Australia which encompasses Qld, NSW and Vic.

We post photos and descriptions of dogs here that are in desperate need who are in danger of being euthanased either because they have been surrendered by their owner or because they are a stray that nobody has claimed. Once saved and either in temporary care or longer term foster care we list them here for adoption. We also do courtesy listings for other rescue organizations when they need help to re-home a dog. All dogs rescued by us will also be visible on PetRescue once they are ready to be adopted. Each dog is available for a fee of $300 which ensures you receive a dog that is desexed, microchipped, C5 vaccinated, heartworm tested and commenced on a monthly regime of heartworm and intestinal worming preventative.

We are happy to do interstate adoptions also but please note that the cost of transport is borne by the adopter. Upon appl ication we will provide quotes from 3 different pet transport companies for comparison.

Spay/Neuter and Vaccinate a Street Dog in Chile $20.00

Animal suffering is a problem around the world. Just $20 U.S. will go a long way towards improving one dog's quality of life in Chile, and also help make sure that future generations of dogs are wanted and cared for. In south-central Chile, the majority of dogs are uncontained, unsterilized, and unvaccinated against common canine diseases. With each litter born on the streets, canine overpopulation worsens, leading to malnutrition, untreated injuries, and the spread of diseases, including rabies. Many dog bite victims are small children, bitten on or near the face, and occasionally these attacks are fatal. All of these problems stem from a common cause: Allowing dogs to live and die on the streets. You can help Veterinarians without Borders in its vital work. Purchase of this Gift That Gives More™ vaccinates and spays/neuters a street dog in Valdivia, Chile.

Veterinarians without Borders is a charity guided by the philosophy that the health and wellbeing of animals, people and the environment are inextricably linked.

About Us

Gunyah Animal Healing Sanctuary is a non-profit animal welfare charity located in the Yarra Valley in Victoria, Australia. Although all animals in need are welcome, our focus is on those that need longer term care due to trauma, neglect or illness. Animals that need longer term care don't always make it through other shelters due to lack of resources. In our mind it doesn't matter how long it takes to get an animal to the point where it is ready to be re-homed, or how long it takes for us to find the right home for them, they still deserve a second chance. The few that are unable to be re-homed because they are too old, sick, disabled or traumatized have a home here at the sanctuary where they get optimum care and love for the rest of their days.

ESMA (Egyptian Society for Mercy to Animals), a no-kill animal shelter in Egypt, was founded in 2007, by ten phenomenal individuals.  Because of the obvious lack of attention to mistreated, abandoned and abused animals, we have come together from all walks of life and backgrounds and created a  safe haven for the four-legged creatures who cannot speak for themselves.  All founders are business professionals as much as animal rights activists, whether full-time or part-time. Together we have noticed the severe shortage of animal welfare groups here in Egypt and thus ESMA was established.  All have the same goal in mind and created a place for animals in need; creating public awareness and educating the children of this country.  



Korean Animal Help Websites...               


Sadly, in present-day Korea there thrives an industry that subjects companion animals to some of the cruelest forms of abuse and exploitation. Each year millions of dogs and thousands of cats are tortured, slaughtered, and consumed for purported medicinal properties of the meat. Time and time again these medicinal benefits (relief from rheumatism and increased virility) has been proven nonexistent. Despite laws protecting dogs and cats from this mistreatment, the Korean government has refused to uphold its responsibilities and enforce these laws.

Welcome to the official site of International Aid for Korean Animals.

Welcome to the official website for International Aid for Korean Animals (IAKA). IAKA is a non-profit organization founded by Kyenan Kum in 1997 to promote animal protection and humane education in Korea. Since its inception Kyenan has worked tirelessly, campaigning worldwide to educate the international community about the difficult conditions for dogs and cats in Korea. A major victory for IAKA came in 2007 with the revision and strengthening of Korea’s 1991 Animal Protection law, which IAKA had long campaigned and petitioned to improve. KAPES was founded in late 2007 by Kyenan Kum and Haesun Park as a response to the newly strengthened Animal Protection law. The two activists realized that with stronger legal protections in place, direct protest of the government and of the meat trade would be less productive than eliminating the demand for dog and cat meat altogether, through hands-on education. The construction of a new Adoption and Education Center in Seoul, capital city of South Korea, is the first step towards teaching young Koreans about the humane treatment of animals and instilling them with a deep compassion for dogs and cats. With the new Animal Protection law in place, IAKA/KAPES seeks to work in partnership with the government to successfully affect positive change in Korean society. The time is finally right to eliminate the plight of Korea’s dogs and cats.

About AWLQ

South East Queensland

The Animal Welfare League of Qld takes care of approximately 10,000 strayed and abandoned animals annually from South East Queensland. The AWLQ receives no Government funding for welfare work, relying predominantly on the community for support.

The AWLQ specialises in the care, shelter, and re-homing of cats and dogs. Since 1959, the AWLQ has opened its doors and hearts to all companion animals in need. As well as providing on-site care at its’ three Re-homing Centre’s (Gold Coast, Beenleigh and Ipswich), the AWLQ has a fostering and rehabilitation program that is second to none.

The AWLQ works closely with the Gold Coast City Council in providing care for stray animals during their impound period, with all unclaimed animals then transferring to the AWLQ for re-homing.

As well as a high focus on re-homing, the AWLQ continues to increase community awareness about how to end the tragedy of pet overpopulation. Our goal is to bring an end to the euthanasia of healthy animals in Australia through legislative changes, education and awareness.

We need the Community’s Help

The AWLQ cannot continue its welfare work, caring for the communities homeless animals without the financial support of the community. The direct costs involved in the re-homing of each animal are approximately $500 This cost does not include the support staff that maintain the organization, allowing the AWLQ to keep its doors open, or the veterinary clinics, which provide charitable veterinary care to the public.

The AWLQ is a Registered Deductible Gift Recipient, Registered Charity No 422 and is a part of the Australian Charities Fund

India Animal Rescue...

This group is Helping a no-kill animal shelter in India if you want to help there: $10.00 donation will help spay and neuter street dogs: Vishaka Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (VSPCA) works to reduce the overpopulation of street dogs through its Animal Birth Control (ABC) program. In cooperation with the local government, VSPCA vaccinates against rabies and spays or neuters loose dogs. Both in the main shelter compound and in the several mobile ABC camps, VSPCA's veterinarians use sterile techniques, pre-operation pain control, gas anesthesia when possible, and post-operation pain control. VSPCA's program is one of the most advanced in India, and sterilizes an average of 40 dogs a day when operated by four veterinarians. All these dogs are vaccinated against rabies, and their ears are notched for identification and protection. VSPCA is a growing and struggling operation that also provides emergency animal care and shelter. No other similar services for injured street animals exist in the area. You can help VSPCA in its vital work. Purchase of this Gift That Gives More™ vaccinates and spays/neuters a street dog in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. 



"Between 1990 and 2001 we took in many unwanted dogs and the odd cat. We would try our very best to find them a home. Sometimes we didn't succeed and they are still here today. Among our permanent residents we count 15 dogs, 11 cats, one white donkey, one horse and Gypsy, our 'I LOVE YOU ALL, BUT ON MY TERMS' white goose. Then we discovered the internet and the internet discovered ASH; thank you to those who took ASH under their wing.

Stray Dog

Help us bring hope...for suffering and sick dogs struggling to survive in some of the worst situations in the world; for puppies who have bdonate noween abandoned and left to fend for themselves; for all abused, neglected, and forgotten animals trying desperately just to stay alive.

The dog on the right was born under an old abandoned car in a dump in Sierra Leone, along with two other brothers and sisters. Their mother was so malnourished and thin that the outline of her ribs was visible under her matted fur, yet she did all she could to keep her puppies safe and warm. When local people were unable to care for the puppies they considered drowning them so they would not have to starve to death.

About us Pakistan

The Brooke is an international animal welfare organization committed to improving the lives of working horses, donkeys, mules and their owners.

The Brooke has sent an emergency response team to the region 

Nearly 80,000 animals have died, close to 6,000 of them working horses, donkeys or mules.The lives of hundreds of thousands of animals are now at risk from water-borne diseases, acute respiratory diseases, diarrhea, dysentery, and malaria. Many working animals have been involved in rescuing their owners’ families and possessions. Donkey carts transported heavy loads of domestic goods, left over grains, and whole families to relief camps. "Without the help of these neglected animals the chance of our rescue and staying alive were very dim," said Rajomal, one of the millions affected.

In addition to providing help when it was needed, Brooke Pakistan works on long-term projects, such as encouraging owners to install water troughs and shaded areas as well as stamping out harmful practices such as nostril slitting.

Our approach has been to work with partners, to end the preventable suffering of working animals across the country. The Brooke has been in Pakistan since 1992 and in 2009 reached over 280,000 working animals, supporting the livelihoods of around 1.5 million people across the country.

Egyptian Society for Mercy to Animals

This period of political transition in Egypt has created an animal welfare crisis, and ESMA urgently needs donations to cover the many extra burdens we now have. The animal welfare problems remain grave–Mubarak’s resignation did not solve these problems! Higher prices for food and medicine, street animals who have been injured or whose normal food sources have been disrupted, and the expatriates who left their animals behind in Egypt have all added tremendous expenses to ESMA that our normal budget cannot bear.

We are also working on getting access to pet shops across the city because we are sure that the animals shut inside (often without any attention from the owners who view them as mere property) are in need of extra assistance.  We will keep the site updated with news of this effort.

We are also raising funds to reach equines who are starving because they have been abandoned by their owners at stables that normally service tourists.

See the results of our preliminary investigation at the horse stables near the pyramids.

We operate completely on your donations and we need your help now to help all of these new and emergency cases.

Please follow our daily news on Facebook and please help if you can, by clicking on “how to help” from the main menu. Every donation, no matter how small or large, is greatly appreciated and makes a difference.

The Egyptian Society for Mercy to Animals (ESMA) was formed in late 2007 in response to a horrific shooting spree of street dogs by the Egyptian government. A small group of Egyptians and expatriates came together to fight this notion of population control and to protect and rescue the animals in immediate danger. ESMA is a charitable organization registered in Egypt (No. 3059/2007) that operates a shelter and adoption center. We are committed to improving animal welfare in Egypt in all areas of need, including: dogs and cats; donkeys and horses; animals in the Cairo zoo; and pet shops.

Animal Shelter in Singapore

Our story
NANAS the animal sanctuary originated as NOAH'S ARK LODGE Private Animal Shelter in Singapore in 1995.
It all began when Raymund Wee chanced upon the opportunity to set up an animal shelter in Jalan Kayu, Seletar. Fueled by his fight for the strays, Raymund sold off his shop house and with the $1.5 million dollars, transformed NOAH'S ARK into one of the foremost private animal shelters in Singapore. Raymund poured body and soul into his work for the strays and continued dog grooming to rake in extra funds to support the animals. Coupled with this, he had also to see to the day-to-day running of the animal farm and tended to the animals when they fell ill.
With the help of his many volunteers and supporters, he steered NOAH'S ARK into becoming one of the top private animal shelters in Singapore and a favorite Sunday venue to which Singaporean families flocked. For the young, NOAH'S ARK became their Sunday classroom, where excited children learned animal bonding.... and much more than this, they learned compassion.


South Africa...


 Wish list: http://www.abandoned.co.za/content/view/5/75/

Have you got a soft spot for animals?  Perhaps volunteer......

If the answer is yes then South Africa is the country for you and TEARS is the project! When an economy struggles the first charities to feel the pinch are those working with animals, so your efforts are much needed. This is a great society which provides food parcels, veterinary treatment and animal care education for those that could not otherwise afford it. It also works with children who have had extremely hard lives and aims to break the cycle of abuse by teaching them to care and be responsible for animals. You'll get a great opportunity to visit local communities and visit animals there, while for those considering a future in veterinary care there is valuable chance to help the resident vet, who requires daily help.




Romania Animal Rescue, Inc. (RAR) has established the first free spay/neuter program for the impoverished people of Romania. RAR's Trap/Neuter/Release program enables animal caregivers to bring in their cats and dogs to be treated for parasites, vaccinated, and neutered at no cost. RAR returns them to the caregiver and to their previous location. They no longer contribute to overpopulation.

About Dogs Across Australia

Dogs Across Australia was established in 2006. We link to and promote some 40 citizen-initiated 'No Kill' Rescue Shelters. These shelters are springing up around the country in response to local/state government's apparent inability to facilitate programs that would prevent the current ‘kill system’. Continuing community involvement is crucial if this archaic system is ever to be replaced with one that respects dogs as sentient creatures and not marketable commodities.
The Rescue Shelters we link to adopt out primarily toy and small breeds, puppies, senior and ‘special’ dogs.
We also explain the reasons for de-sexing and vaccinating, and promote dog care for kids, with help from the Care Faeries and the Pound Dog.

Pound Dog Day - 25 June each year—is a Dogs Across Australia initiative to draw attention to the plight of pound dogs, and to involve the community in aiding these unfortunate animals.

About Operation Toby: Operation Toby is a comprehensive, state-by-state online directory of pet re-homing groups and organisations, including pounds, shelters and volunteer networks. It also has a lengthy list of breed-specific rescue representatives and their contact details. Visitors can surf through an extensive collection of over 200 photo gallery-style adoption sites from all over Australia. The site also features information on other important pet-related topics, and includes videos depicting behind-the-scenes horrors relating to the dog trade.

About Renbury Pound

Officially named the Renbury Farm Animal Shelter, this pound co-operates with the Rescue Shelters in their quest to save and rehome unwanted dogs. Dogs adopted directly from this pound are DESEXED and VACCINATED.

The Renbury Pound website:

* Is user friendly and well laid out.
* Lists all impounded dogs.
* Provides large clear photos of impounded dogs.
* Offers descriptions of the impounded dogs, as well as microchip status.
* Advises when dogs have been rescued by inserting 'Rescue Symbols'.
* Advises when dogs have been adopted.
* Is updated on a very regular basis.

Society would be better served if all dog pounds embraced the 'Renbury' attitude towards genuine rescue shelters , whose only mission is to rehome abandoned dogs. Using a Renbury-style website would also offer the public a useful tool to either find their lost dog or to adopt a new

And there is :



Currently, Noah's Ark is home to more than 600 dogs, cats, birds and donkeys. Most of the animals arrived at the shelter with various signs of illness and abuse: an emaciated cat is found fully penetrated by an arrow; a puppy is poisoned and must be nursed back to health. Wrobel's own dog, Babe, was found with 14 bullets shot in the face. "What will happen to animal protection if they close me down? This is the biggest animal welfare organization in Greece, so to shut down is a tragedy."

We, two active females, brought Animal Help Europe e.V. to life in order to help private animal protectors in Europe. The idea?
One of our founders has been working for 1 year with a private animal protector in Spain. These two are in a daily manner contact. They discuss the animals, arrange appointments regarding the flights, talk about the prior inspections and the safety contracts. This makes it possible to find a good, new home for approximately 40-50 animals a year, which is of course only a drop on a hot stone. A lot more animals need such help and that in all countries. The private animal protectors do not have the time to take care of the paper work, make contacts in Germany, Austria & Switzerland in order to find a new home. There a lots of people out there that would like to and could help and this is the opportunity to do so. Animal Help Europe will make the contacts to the private animal protectors in foreign countries and is looking for people who would like to work with one. The animals will be individually introduced with a picture, a description and the information for the point of contact in our Animal Help Europe e.V.-Forum. Therefore a quick and organized transfer of an animal is guaranteed. Each private animal protector will hold his own sub-forum and the assistant is responsible for the contents.

Animal Help Europe e.V. will be the central point for the administration of the commissions and for the safety contracts. Animal Help Europe e.V. will be on the look out for sponsors, will arrange food transports and built up a data base of people that volunteerly bring the animals to their final destination. Also we are taking care of advertisements, looking for new members and are working on publication in order to send constantly animals to Germany, Austria & Switzerland. There is one drifting strength in this organization that connects us: animal love
That is the motor, that started this whole thing and will make sure that we are constantly engaged and full of desire working on our tasks.
Help us, because only with YOU we can be successful!

Greece Greek Animal Rescue

About Us

How it began

The founder and Director of Greek Animal Rescue, Vesna Jones, aged 60, passed away on May 15th 2014. After a short spell in hospital, Vesna sadly lost her fight against an illness she had suffered with for many years.

Below, Vesna describes in her own words what motivated her to start Greek Animal Rescue.

It all began with a holiday in Greece in 1987 - the first proper holiday in 15 years for my husband Paul and myself and one we both very much looked forward to. We drove to Greece and intended travelling around for one month before returning home, but as we crossed the border, we encountered the first stray, not realizing at the time that he was just one out of hundreds we were to see during our so called holiday.

We spent ten days of our holiday on Crete and that’s where we saw appalling neglect of animals ... dozens of hungry stray dogs and cats begging for scraps, ‘guard dogs’ chained to rusty oil drums or to a tree (more often than not there was nothing for them to ‘guard’), not to mention numerous dead dogs and cats lying by the roadside, donkeys and mules left tied in barren fields with no food or water in sight, often hobbled and barely able to move ... We were horrified by all the terrible sights, but what was worse, we were unable to help the poor animals, or at least we didn’t know how we could help them - nobody seemed interested to listen to our complaints and we were even laughed at.

The last few days of our so-called holiday found us helping at an animal shelter near Athens and it was there we realized that sterilizing of dogs and cats wasn’t a common practice in Greece, but abandonment of unwanted litters of puppies and kittens was.

This is something I can't understand! What is the point of bringing into this world even more dogs and cats, when their chances of ever being re-homed were virtually nil and left on the streets, most of them perish within a few months, if not weeks, either through disease, starvation, deliberate poisoning or under the wheels of the cars. The few decent shelters there are in Greece, should be there to help and to provide a sanctuary for the neediest cases - the starved, sick or injured animals, but unfortunately they also become a dumping ground for unwanted litters of puppies and kittens and for older dogs, who have been replaced by ‘younger models’.

Greece is a beautiful country and there is no doubt many of the islands are unique in their structure like, for example, Santorini, but when I visited the island in 1989, the picturesque scenery is not what I noticed first – it was the poor ‘beasts of burden’ – donkeys and mules, struggling up the steep winding steps with either the tourists or their luggage on their backs, some were frothing at the mouth, clearly exhausted ... how pitiful they looked! Yes, the tourists also need ‘educating’!!


Our Cause: PAW JUSTICE FOOD BANK In New Zealand

Keeping Animals Out of Shelters

Donate for the Christchurch Earthquake        

How the Paw Justice Food Bank Works

Paw Justice accumulates and stores pet food through donations.  When our stocks are low we are able to purchase supplies from pet food manufacturers who help us out, by letting us have it at a reduced cost. Paw Justice distributes or personally delivers our stock to those in need. We are "linked in" to over 70 food depots (outside of animal shelters) who assist and supply pet food to over a thousand families in need. This keeps us connected at ground level so we understand what is happening in our communities.

At present Paw Justice is focusing on sending rescue packages down to Christchurch to help pets there in need. As you can imagine this has depleted our supply quite rapidly, so please help us and donate now!

Paw justice mission statement

What would you do if someone hurt your pet?

TACN Rescue Centre is located in Tongzhou district in Beijing, founded in 2009 by TACN Regional Director Xiaoli

TACN’s work at this rescue centre mainly focuses on:

  • Provide training services to the general public with first-hand animal rescue knowledge and practical guidance;
  • Working with local authorities to raise awareness for animal welfare, rescue and care for stray animals;
  • Working alongside many other local animal welfare groups and activists to help stray dogs and cats, including housing the rescued animals;
  • Setting a successful example to the animal rescue centres and shelters across China regarding shelter management and animal welfare;
  • Creating opportunities for the general public to visit and volunteer at the rescue centre in order to learn about animal behaviour and welfare through well constructed programs and projects, all supported by many local authorities.

TACN Beijing Rescue Centre is continually fighting through the difficulties of running an animal rescue centre in the capital of China and is helping countless animals by collaborating with local rescue groups and individual rescuers.  To date, TACN Beijing Rescue Centre has re-homed 17 animals.

Two permanent staff are working at TACN Beijing Rescue Centre looking after the resident animals and providing them with their daily essentials and care.  They are also responsible for the maintenance of the centre. With a current small maximum capacity of only 30 dogs and 20 cats, the rescue centre values donations, which are needed for the construction of more animal accommodation leading to potential expansion of the centre.  Such donations will help the centre to meet the growing number of newly rescued animals and will assist in the care and shelter for these animals.

In 2014, we have plans to improve to the rescue centre further with the hope of providing the resident animals with an even better living environment, helping them to get more healthy and active. As half of the animals at TACN Rescue Centre are senior or physically disabled dogs and cats the chances for them to find new forever homes are not looking good. These senior and physically disabled animals are more likely to spend more time or their whole life at the centre, therefore improvements to their living environment would be absolutely necessary.

You can find out more about our plans for improvement and contribute towards making them a reality. Or, you can make a general donation to TACN Beijing Rescue Centre and all the animals we care for.

This Year Could Be Better

This year, a group of expats all along the coast have decided to help them bring their message out to the expat community. Everyone appreciate the changes that they have worked so hard to make for the quality of life, and for the quality of the lives of the dogs and cats in this area. These expats have offered to help in three ways.

1. Sell tickets for the event to be held on Saturday, November 10th from 7 pm to 11 pm. Tickets purchased before the event cost only $180 pesos per person and include food, drink & entertainment
2. Help to get donations of bottles of wine and/or food or both
3. Ask others to help sell tickets and/or get wine & food donated

But why should you donate your time or resources without knowing who they are and what they do?

Here, briefly, is who they are and what they have done over the last few years.

Many expats participate in the Spay & Neuter Clinics which are coming up on their fourth year in operation in this area. Many of us who volunteer and donate items for the spay/neuter clinics, have noticed all the orange shirts the past few years. These are all AFAD volunteers. AFAD is the organization that paid for the large spay and neuter clinics in Progreso in 2010 and 2011 (the government provided zero dollars). AFAD found a sponsor to pay at the 11th hour, which paid for all of the materials. AFAD also got the location donated for the event, as well as the volunteers and the food.

AFAD approached the City of Progeso to pay for the clinic in January of 2012 but it was eventually paid for personally by the outgoing mayor, thanks to AFAD. The events over these three years meant that 500, 650 and 750 animals respectively were spayed or neutered in Progreso alone.

AFAD pays for and provides medication to the City of Progreso to humanely care for sick and dying animals that are picked up by the city, as well as the drugs needed to provide humane euthanasia when needed. The City of Progreso previously used other means (we don’t want to talk about those…) before AFAD stepped in. AFAD Progreso now provides the properly trained personnel to provide humane and proper care for these animals free of charge.

AFAD recently worked with Evolución and Planned Pethood to change the laws about the treatment of the horses in the State of Yucatan and the City of Merida. Veterinarians are now checking the horses that haul around the tourists and the bags of dirt. They must be healthy, fed, watered and properly cared for, as well as given shade and/or coverage during severe weather conditions. AFAD has also worked to create the current laws that make prolonged restrictive chaining, neglect, forced fighting, and outright abuse illegal for domestic animals. It is a very important first step to have this law on the books, in order for enforcement to follow along. AFAD works with law enforcement as well.

Don't buy! Adopt a dog!!

AFAD also worked, along with Evolución and Planned Pethood, to improve conditions in the state-run dog pound (la perrera). The director, Lidia, along with others, met personally with the Secretary of Health and invited him to come view the conditions of the perrera. As a result of their efforts, the workers who had been abusing and neglecting animals were let go, and a veteranarian (graduated from the local UADY vet school) is now directing all activities at the facility. There is still work to be done to assure beneficial adoptions, etc. and AFAD continues to be involved.
