Africa Network for Animal Welfare - USA

ANAW focuses on the welfare and humane treatment of all animals for human welfare. Our work is anchored on the understanding and appreciation that animals have intrinsic value and are sentient beings; which denotes that they have value in their own right and that they have feelings, emotions and respond to psychological and physiological changes in the environment.

As a hands-on organization with strong grassroots focus across Kenya and the Africa region, we work directly in animal care and protection while building networks and partnerships with grassroots community organizations, other animal welfare organizations and governments in Kenya and across Africa.

Our projects are largely targeted at establishing animal welfare as a community-driven responsibility that must not only be owned and driven at grassroots level but also as an effective way of obtaining the greatest value from animals.

Established in 2006, the organization has committed itself to spearheading a number of animal welfare of campaigns while building networks with governments, political leaders, media and other institutions to press for effective policy and legislation changes and for the protection and care for animals at national and community level.
