List of animal welfare organizations

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Animal welfare organizations are concerned with the health, safety and psychological wellness of animals. They include animal rescue groups which help individual animals in distress, and others that may help many animals of a kind suffering from some epidemic.

The category is distinct from animal rights groups. 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.

More comprehensive listings (over 189,000 organizations[citation needed]) are available via the World Animal Net directory (see external links below). For organizations with Wikipedia pages, see Category:Animal welfare organizations.
