Become a leader in the protection of tourists, local communities and animals in Southeast Asia. ​#ProtectMillions 

The global traveller loves Southeast Asia and the tourism sector can be a force for good. Help FOUR PAWS to showcase Southeast Asia as a region that is safe for travellers and kind to people and animals. 

Our Goal

FOUR PAWS aims to protect millions of tourists, communities and animals across Southeast Asia by working together with the tourism sector.

Following the outbreak of COVID-19, more and more people are aware of the public health risks associated with live animal trades. FOUR PAWS has evidence that the trade in dogs and cats for their meat increases the spread of rabies, therefore increasing the risks for tourists.

By ending the dog and cat meat trade we could minimise the risk of another global disease outbreak.
