Humane animal welfare

Our pledge to end animal suffering

Paws For Compassion was founded in Đà Nẵng, Việt Nam by two animal enthusiasts and educators, who saw the need for animal education in the region. We seek to inform and educate individuals about the animal cruelty that is taking place within their communities. The program is aimed at youth, with the intent of informing them about humane animal welfare education. Paws For Compassion serves the community by providing safety, medical treatment, and rehabilitation to help stray dogs and cats become adoptable. We also work with partners and the veterinary industry to improve companion animal care.

Our Mission

Our mission is to improve the welfare of animals by combating animal cruelty and pet overpopulation through education. We strive to inspire a greater sense of empathy and responsibility for pets. Ideally, whole communities and groups will stand up, raise their voices and take action towards improving animal rights. Empowering the youth to make a difference increases the potential of making a more caring, interactive and loving world.

Our Goal

Our goal is to prevent cruelty to animals, to improve the welfare of companion animals and to bring about a much needed, long-term change: from being victims to being valuable members of a community. Paws for Compassion believes that it is inherent upon people to speak up for these animals and take action so that sustainable animal husbandry becomes the expected (and only acceptable) way to treat our four-legged friends.

Children Changing the Future for Animals

Paws for Compassion combats animal cruelty through a Community Educational Program for learners of all ages. We believe building awareness in the younger generation, while cultivating the bond between pets and people, leads to humane treatment for all.

Our learning program facilitates lessons of compassion and respect for animals. Activities and education are taught in English and Vietnamese with a variety of topics. Our educational team makes class visits in schools and provides an off-site lesson option. The proceeds from the course are used to benefit and provide for the animals in need.
