“Compassion for animals is intimately associated with goodness of character, and it may be confidently asserted that he who is cruel to animals cannot be a good man.”
― Arthur Schopenhauer, The Basis of Morality
Here to help animals in need of rescue
Every year we receive hundreds of thousands of calls reporting animals in need.
We rescue animals from accidents and injury
Pets, wildlife and farm animals can all find themselves in need of a little assistance from time to time. When they do, we’re here to help.
We fight the big fights to end suffering for all animals.
Our vision is a world where humans and animals coexist in sustainable ecosystems. Our mission is to build awareness and implement effective systems such that habitats and animals are protected.
At International Animal Rescue we not only save animals from suffering, we also rehabilitate and release them back into the wild and work to protect their precious natural habitats. Our work includes cutting free and caring for captive bears in India and Armenia, rescuing and rehabilitating orangutans and other primates in Indonesia and treating injured and orphaned howler monkeys in Costa Rica. Our aim is to return animals to their natural environment wherever possible, but we also provide a permanent home for those that can no longer fend for themselves.
As human populations expand, wildlife comes under increasing threat. By rescuing individual animals belonging to species like the orangutan and reintroducing them into protected areas in the wild, our work also plays a role in the conservation of the species as a whole.
While our main goal is to find a responsible home for our residents, we work hard to ensure all animals receive the level of care they need. Thanks to the help of our loyal staff and charitable volunteers, any animal can find a loving home here. We are always looking for compassionate people to donate their time and help us in our mission to care for our residents.
In addition to being a sanctuary for the unwanted, ARI offers free or discounted emergency medical services. We offer a Crisis Intervention Program, which helps keep the human-animal bond intact by providing assistance to the elderly or infirm. We also offer low-cost spay and neuter clinics to the surrounding community and trap-neuter-release (TNR) clinics for feral cats. Most of our residents are rescued strays, as we offer solace to any creature who needs us. Over the years we have opened our home to mice, cows, chickens, pigs, turkeys, goats and geese.
Every life, no matter how big or small, matters at ARI.
To advance the safety and well-being of animals.
Our vision is for all animals to live a life free of cruelty and suffering.
SPCA International embraces, above all, kindness, respect, compassion, awareness and integrity in all aspects of our mission and vision for a cruelty-free world.
