Where does the money go?

Over the past 50 years, World Animal Protection supporters have helped us end the needless suffering of animals around the world. We work around the globe to influence decision makers to put animals on the global agenda and to help the world see how important animals are to all of us. Today we're working to help governments and communities to protect and care for their animals.

Every gift you give through the World Animal Gifts is a symbolic contribution which will help the program you have selected as well as our other animal welfare programs around the world. Your donation will be used where it is needed the most as we strive to create a world where animal welfare matters and animal cruelty has ended.

Is my gift tax deductible?

Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible in Australia
