SAM’s mission is to rescue and protect animals around the world.
We rescue individual animals, safeguard populations, and preserve habitat.


Founded in 2013 in US, the International Fund for Animal Welfare saves individual animals, animal populations and habitats all over the world. With projects in more than 40 countries, SAM provides hands-on assistance to animals in need, whether it’s dogs and cats, wildlife and livestock, or rescuing animals in the wake of disasters. We also advocate saving populations from cruelty and depletion, such as our campaign to end commercial whaling and seal hunts.

Our vision: Our vision is a world where animals are respected and protected.
