IAPWA was founded in 2009 to provide protection and improve the welfare of animals in need.  We exist for the benefit of the animals who need our help and are driven by those who are passionate about providing this lifeline.

What began as a commitment to change the plight of stray dogs in Borneo, has developed into a network of support changing the lives of thousands of animals worldwide every year. Through our projects and partnerships, we’re committed to creating long term change for a better future as well as providing vital care for those that need us today.
Our achievements have and continue to be possible through the combined dedication of everyone within and supporting IAPWA who enable us to make an impact through the collective action we take.  With your help we can continue to be there for animals that rely on the support we provide and take steps together towards our vision of a world where all animals are treated with compassion and respect.
