A better future for animals in need

With your support we can change the lives of animals worldwide

Passion for all animals

International Aid for the Protection & Welfare of Animals

IAPWA (International Aid for the Protection & Welfare of Animals) is a UK registered charity dedicated to creating a better future for animals in need. Our first project, established in 2009, is based in Sabah, Borneo, where we have a facility and team providing a lifeline to thousands of dogs and cats every year in need of veterinary care and support. Our companion animal programmes have since developed in other Countries, including Romania, Penang, Philippines and the UK.

Our passion for all animals has also seen us develop partnerships and launch campaigns to help other species, including Elephants, Rhinos and Lions. Wherever there is suffering, we aim to make a difference and with your support we can continue to protect and improve the welfare of animals worldwide.

Join us in making a difference

Our work is funded entirely by the generosity of animal lovers worldwide. We'd love you to get involved with what we do and help us improve the lives of animals in need. It costs just £3 to vaccinate a dog to prevent them dying from debilitating but preventable diseases. Or £10 to neuter another dog to reduce the number of puppies born to suffer on the streets. For £45 you can sponsor an elephant orphan for a year. There are lots of ways to get involved, from our overseas challenges through to volunteering with us and however you decide to help, we'd be really grateful for your support.
