IFAW works tirelessly to protect, rescue, and care for animals in desperate need. With projects in more than forty countries and a network of partners around the globe, IFAW is the leader in saving animals in crisis around the world.
Whether it's rescuing and raising an individual animal like a baby elephant orphaned by an ivory poacher, or protecting the ocean's habitat like the last 400 Northern Atlantic right whales, IFAW is committed to making the world better for animals, big and small, few and plenty.
We vaccinate, spay/neuter, and provide critical veterinary care for more than 40,000 cats and dogs each year in some of the most impoverished communities.
We're the worldwide leader in animal rescue, rushing to save insured and abandoned animals after the Australian bushfires, Haiti earthquake, Southeast Asia tsunami, and other natural disasters.
We helped defeat a proposal to legalise commercial whaling; lobbied successfully to win a European ban on commercial trade of seal parts; and prompted eBay to ban the sale of ivory from their websites around the world.
Wherever and whenever animals are abused, neglected, injured and suffering, IFAW is there to provide them with expert care and a comforting touch.
Leaving a bequest to IFAW is a loving and lasting way to help protect animals and absolutely vital to our work. In fact, 1 in 10 animals we rescue, protect or care for is paid for by a bequest. This amounts to thousands of animals every year, helped by the bequests of compassionate people who want their love for animals to live on.
