WSPA Asia is based in Bangkok and was officially opened in September 2007. We are the latest office to be opened as part of WSPA's global expansion. Our aim is to promote the protection of animals and to prevent animal cruelty in order to relieve animal suffering in every part of Asia.

In 2008, we expanded our operations with offices in China and India.

Our vision: A world where animal welfare matters, and animal cruelty ends.

Our mission: To build a global animal welfare movement.

WSPA’s work is focused on six animal welfare areas:

  • Companion animals – Responsible pet ownership, humane stray management, and prevention of cruelty.
  • Commercial exploitation of wildlife – The welfare of animals kept in captivity, the inhumane killing of animals for meat or products.
  • Farm animals – Intensive farming, long distance transportation, and the slaughter of domestic animals for food.
  • Disaster management – Providing care to animals affected by man-made or natural disasters.
  • Education – Promoting knowledge, skills, understanding and attitudes related to animal welfare.
  • Universal Declaration for Animal Welfare (UDAW) – Through our initiative for a UDAW, WSPA is urging the world’s governments to officially recognise that animal welfare is an issue of common concern and importance.
