The Greek Animal Welfare Fund (GAWF), operating in Greece as Animal Action, based in Athens. GAWF’s objects are the prevention and relief of cruelty and suffering amongst animals in Greece.
The Anglican Society for the Welfare of Animals was formed in 1970 by a group of clergy and lay Christians who felt very strongly that the Church did not speak out on the subject of animal cruelty and suffering. Our mission is therefore to ‘put animals on the agenda of the Christian church’.
The Friends of Animals League (FOAL) is based at Foal Farm Animal Rescue Centre in Kent. The Charity was founded in 1960 and since then has cared for tens of thousands of needy animals. Foal Farm employs 32 permanent staff and has many dedicated and loyal volunteers. Over a thousand cats, dogs, rabbits and smaller pets are found new loving homes each year. Permanent sanctuary is given to farm animals, horses and a variety of birds.
The Hawk Conservancy Trust is a conservation charity and award-winning visitor centre that has worked in the fields of conservation, education, rehabilitation and the research of birds of prey for over 50 years. Our mission is the conservation of birds of prey. Projects related to this mission operate on site, in southern England and overseas.
At International Animal Rescue we do exactly what our name says - we save animals from suffering around the world and protect their precious habitats. Our work includes rescuing and rehabilitating orangutans that have been kept as pets or left stranded after their forest home has been destroyed. Our teams in Indonesia also rescue slow lorises and macaque monkeys from the illegal pet trade.
When we rescue one animal – a house pet abandoned in a hurricane, a milk cow displaced by an earthquake, a right whale entangled in fishing line – we’re doing much more than saving a life. We’re reuniting a family. We’re restoring a community’s livelihood. We’re saving a species on the brink of extinction. And we’re saving our planet.
Founded in 1928 by Dorothy and Pog Yglesias, the hospital depends entirely on donations and yearly subscriptions to Hospital Membership. Caring for both land and sea birds, its aim is always to release, but it provides permanent sanctuary in cases where this is impossible. If we cannot release an injured bird or meet its ongoing particular needs we endeavour to find the most suitable long term home for it with other centres or individuals already vetted for their suitability and excellence.
Fred, the inspiration for our logo, chained to a 12-inch perch for 19 years! Imagine his suffering. New Life Parrot Rescue & Helpline Service, founded in 1995, offers a specialised and unique service. Our fundamental aim is to take in unwanted, neglected, traumatised and abused companion psittacines. Our objective is to care for each of them and, where necessary, restore them to good health.
The RSPB is the UK’s largest nature conservation charity, inspiring everyone to give nature a home. The natural world – our world and home – is in crisis. Together with individuals, communities, businesses and governments, we work tirelessly to protect species, create wild spaces, champion nature-friendly laws and sustainable development, and educate and inspire a love of nature in us all.
Your love for animals can live on. As you’re in the ‘animals’ section of this directory, we’re making the assumption that you have a soft spot for them, just like we do. Back in 1824, we vowed never to tolerate abuse of any animals. And thanks to kind donations, year after year, we’re continuing to keep that promise. However, without gifts in Wills, we wouldn’t be able to. Legacy donations make up over 50% of the funds we receive - so they’re hugely important.
