 #LIVEKINDER

Help build a world where humans treat animals with respect, empathy and understanding.

What are our demands?

At FOUR PAWS, we are working to protect wild, companion and farm animals and improve the planet. We cannot do it alone; we need YOUR help too.

FOUR PAWS wants to:

  • Prohibit the exploitation of wild animals for entertainment purposes and ban the trade of wild animals
  • End the trade and consumption of dog and cat meat in Asia
  • Reduce stray animal suffering through responsible pet ownership education, shelter adoption and sustainable and humane stray animal population management.
  • Reduce global production and consumption of animal products by 50% by 2050
  • Stopping fur farming to end the millionfold suffering of wild animals and prevent the emergence and spread of zoonoses.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT

Aiming to change human behaviour and systems, so that animals, and in turn humans, can live their best possible lives. Even the smallest acts of kindness can collectively impact the planet, animals and humans, in extraordinary measures. 
Let’s start making the life we dream of a reality.
