Animal Welfare Research Institute

Creating a more humane and compassionate world by ending abuse and neglect of children and animals.

In collaboration with animal experts from across the nation and around the world, we use strategic science to get to the bottom of what makes animals healthy, happy and safe.

We’re also finding ways to connect the welfare of animals to the well-being of children, both a critical part of our mission of compassion.

Help advance innovative research that improves the lives of animals!

Donations in any amount make a difference.
