List of animal welfare groups

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

An animal welfare group is concerned with the health, safety and psychological wellness of animals. It may be an animal rescue group which helps individual animals in distress or may be many animals of a kind suffering from some epidemic.

The category is distinct from an animal rights group. Although some groups may belong to both categories, an animal rights group goes beyond the welfare of individual animals to advocate for the rights of animals to be treated in a certain way, such as not to be abused, or used for medical research, sport, food, or clothing.

Note that more comprehensive listings (over 189,000 groups) are available via the World Animal Net directory (see external links below). You can also find listings of groups with Wikipedia pages by clicking on the relevant titles in the "Categories" bar at the bottom of this page.
