The World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) is the world’s largest network for animal welfare. For 25 years, WSPA has promoted the concept of animal welfare nationally and internationally where there are few, if any, measures to protect animals. WSPA campaigns to convince governments and key decision makers to change practices and introduce new laws to protect or improve the welfare of animals.
