The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) saves animals.

IFAW has a global commitment to animals. We rush to help animal victims when floods, hurricanes and other disasters strike. We hand-raise orphaned elephant and rhino calves and return them to the wild. We save cats and dogs from cruelty and neglect, and safeguard whales across the world’s oceans.

And it’s our supporters who make all of this possible.

Read some of the news stories below to learn more about how IFAW helps animals – wherever we are needed.

The LGBTI community is helping to make a difference for animals. Would you like to know more about how you can help animals around the world?
