The aim of International Animal Rescue is to come to the aid of suffering animals around the world. Wherever possible we return rescued animals to their natural environment, but we also provide permanent sanctuary for animals that can no longer survive in the wild.
International Animal Rescue also specialises in comprehensive sterilisation and vaccination programmes for stray dogs and cats to control populations and prevent the spread of disease. We work with other like-minded organisations and government departments to develop sound legislation to protect animals from cruelty and neglect.
International Animal Rescue strives to educate the public in the compassionate and humane treatment of all animals. We use sound scientiﬁc evidence to inform our decisions and determine the course of our rescue operations. In all that we do we seek to find practical solutions that benefit both animals and people.
Our scope is limited only by our resources, If we cannot assist a suffering animal ourselves, we are often able to redirect a call for help to those who can. We maintain contact with a network of groups and individuals around the globe who are as committed as we are to helping animals in distress.
