"Non-human animals are among society's most vulnerable, so deserving of care and respect.  In my capacity as Board member I feel privileged to support FOUR PAWS' invaluable work on behalf of animals, in Australia and worldwide."

Heli Dungler

In Memory – FOUR PAWS Founder 


"I hope that one day our mission to help animals becomes redundant! We human beings must learn that treating animals with respect is the only way that we can live together."

FOUR PAWS is the global animal welfare organisation for animals under direct human influence, which reveals suffering, rescues animals in need and protects them.
