There are countless stray dogs and cats worldwide. These homeless pets live a difficult life on the streets often suffering hunger, thirst and cruelty. FOUR PAWS employs a community-led approach to help strays and reduce their numbers in a humane and sustainable way, with the ultimate aim that no dog and cat has to suffer on the streets anymore.
FOUR PAWS' community-led approach includes the following components: Community Engagement; Monitoring, Evaluation & Impact; Catch-Neuter-Vaccinate-Return (CNVR); Responsible Pet Ownership; Shelter Adoption Programme; and Animal Assisted Interventions.
FOUR PAWS is active in the stray animal care field for over two decades, with our first project to improve the lives of strays in 1999 in Romania. In Eastern Europe, FOUR PAWS aims to deliver strategic, sustainable and impactful projects alongside the local communities.
Since 2018, FOUR PAWS engages with a variety of local partners in Southeast Asia to deliver stray animal care projects involving rescues of sick and injured animals, and providing desperately needed medical help to animals in need.
