Mission

FOUR PAWS is an international animal welfare organization that has, for more than two decades, consistently and successfully focused on one goal: to help animals who have been abused for entertainment, economic, scientific or other reasons. FOUR PAWS strives for improvements in animal welfare through sustainable campaigns and projects. Our work is based on substantiated research and scientific expertise backed by intensive national and international lobbying efforts. We focus on animals that are directly under human influence: farm, wild and companion animals but also specifically bears, big cats, horses, primates and stray dogs and cats. Headquartered in Vienna, Austria, FOUR PAWS has offices in 12 other countries including in Boston, Ma.
