Animal welfare groups endorse the responsible use of animals to satisfy certain human needs. These range from companionship and sport, to uses which involve the taking of life, such as for food, clothing and medical research. Animal welfare means ensuring that all animals used by humans have their basic needs fulfilled in terms of food, shelter and health, and that they experience no unnecessary suffering in providing for human needs. Unlike animal rights groups, animal welfare groups do not argue that animals should never be used, or kept as property, by human beings. Nor do any animal welfare groups advocate violence. These groups tend to seek legal, social and financial strategies.

The following is a list of animal welfare groups. These must not include more advanced animal rights groups, such as PETA or The Humane Society of the United States. For animal rights, see the list of animal rights groups. Note that more comprehensive listings (over 17,000 groups) are available via the World Animal Net directory (see external links below).
