World League for Protection of Animals

The World League for Protection of Animals Inc (WLPA) is an Australian campaign and rescue organisation which has been fighting for the rights and well being of animals, both native and non-native, since 1935. WLPA was registered under the Charitable Collections Act, NSW 1934 on 14 May 1937. We are self-funded as we receive no government subsidies or grants. We aim to use our funds for the benefit of the animal causes we champion and keep our core staff to a minimum. WLPA relies on the support of compassionate and generous volunteers for hands on rescue work.

WLPA is funded solely by membership fees and the generosity of our supporters.

WLPA runs a 'no-kill' animal rescue program. Unlike other major animal welfare organisations, we have a network of volunteers who assist the community in trapping and rescuing abandoned companion animals as part of our Cat Compassion Community Circle initiative. When you support us by donating money or goods, you will be directly supporting animals in need.

Many animals now and in the future rely on our work. Please help us to help them.
