About World Animal Foundation

About WAF

The World Animal Foundation is dedicated to the preservation and protection of the planet and the animals that inhabit it. WAF works through Public Education, Research, Investigations, Animal Rescue, Legislation, Special Events and Direct Action.

WAF is an all volunteer organization. The organization has no paid officers and uses all donations towards animal and environmental programs. Utilizing volunteerism, WAF has kept operating costs to a bare minimum while maximizing our ability to help animals.

WAF has members throughout the world and on every continent. World Animal Foundation attempts to make the world a more compassionate place for all animals - wild animals, companion animals, aquatic animals and farm animals. Through grass roots action and activism, WAF bridged the gap between animal and environmental issues.

Public Education

World Animal Foundation Inc. focuses primarily on the advancement of education regarding compassionate living – educating the public about animal and environmental issues (wildlife issues, companion animal issues, aquatic animal issues, farm animal issues, etc.) and what individuals can do to prevent cruelty to animals. WAF strives to eliminate the prejudice of animals (speciesism) through educational efforts.

WAF’s websites are visited by individuals across the country and throughout the world. The sites act as information portals regarding animal and environmental issues. All information posted on the sites is free of charge and available to anyone with an interest. The sites are run by WAF’s corporate officers who also create all educational materials. Educational materials include fact sheets, flyers and mini-courses regarding animal issues. The educational sites and all printed materials are made available at all times.


Occasionally World Animal Foundation, Inc. is asked to perform investigations of individuals, businesses or corporations regarding animal and environmental issues. When within reasonable proximity to WAF corporate headquarters or volunteers, officers or volunteers will investigate the circumstances and attempt to intervene in the most non-confrontational manner possible. If outside the proximity of headquarters and volunteers, WAF contacts authorities or organizations within proximity to investigate the situation. World Animal Foundation attempts to lessen the burdens of government by directing individuals to appropriate charitable resources.


WAF occasionally conducts educational meetings regarding public policy, prepares and distributes educational materials regarding public policy, or otherwise considers public policy issues in an educational manner. WAF may occasionally encourage people to participate in the electoral process, such as voter registration and get-out-to-vote drives, in a non-partisan manner. World Animal Foundation only participates in those activities that do not favor one candidate over another; oppose a candidate in some manner; or have the effect of favoring a candidate or group of candidates. Educational materials regarding legislation issues may include fact sheets, flyers and website pages created by WAF officers and volunteers.

Animal Rescue

World Animal Foundation, Inc. works with other non-profit organizations to promote animal rescue and adoption. WAF consistently promotes animal adoption through its websites and educational materials. Individuals are encouraged to adopt animals from local shelters and humane societies. Locally, World Animal Foundation rescues and fosters animals from local shelters pending adoption and encourages members, volunteers and officers to do the same. Caring for animals in the custody of WAF is a 24-hour a day dedication performed by officers and volunteers.

Special Events

Throughout the year World Animal Foundation, Inc. may participate in local, regional and national events promoting the advancement of the education of animal and environmental issues. Occasionally WAF will conduct its own festival, tabling event, gala or other special event to promote the education of animal issues, eliminate the prejudice of animals and to prevent cruelty to animals.

Direct Action

The World Animal Foundation, Inc. directly helps people and animals requiring assistance when time and funding permits. Examples include: individuals requesting help re-homing exotic animals after determining they do not make good pets, individuals requesting assistance finding local animal and environmental organizations in their area, individuals asking for help with low-cost spaying and neutering of animals, managing feral cat colonies, transporting animals (to shelters, vet clinics, sanctuaries, etc.,) removing litter from nature areas, assisting animals during natural disasters, assisting children and young adults requesting help with homework, etc. Although WAF primarily focuses on education in regards to activism, environmentalism and animal protection, when situations deem necessary its officers, volunteers and members may participate in tabling, public speeches and campaigning and other forms of activism.


World Animal Foundation officers and volunteers devote much time and effort to researching animal and environmental issues to determine the best actions individuals can take to make the world a more compassionate place for animals. Research is conducted via the internet, scientific articles, journals, trade publications, animal and environmental organizations’ publications and other materials. In addition, research may include direct contact, phone conversations and email with professionals in the field–either locally or throughout the country.
