"Treating people and animals with respect, empathy and understanding is the basis for a better world. We work together within our culture of development for sustainable impact on a global scope, embracing diversity and joining individual contributions to our common goals for worldwide animal welfare"

"I hope that one day our mission to help animals becomes redundant! We human beings must learn that treating animals with respect is the only way that we can live together."

FOUR PAWS is the global animal welfare organisation for animals under direct human influence, which reveals suffering, rescues animals in need and protects them.
