in the interest of all animals
The World Animal Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and protection of the planet and the animals that inhabit it. WAF works with other not-for-profit organizations dedicated to planet preservation and animal issues. WAF works through public education, research, investigations, animal rescue, legislation, special events, and direct action.
WAF is an all volunteer organization. The organization has no paid officers and uses all donations towards animal and environmental programs: direct rescue, educational programs and animal sanctuaries. Utilizing volunteerism, WAF has kept operating costs to a bare minimum while maximizing our ability to help animals.
WAF has members throughout the world and on every continent. Through our volunteer network, the World Animal Foundation attempts to make the world a more compassionate place for all animals - wild animals, companion animals, aquatic animals and farm animals.
Through grass roots action and activism, WAF bridged the gap between animal and environmental issues.
The Foundation has directly rescued thousands of animals and supports wildlife sanctuaries throughout the US. In addition, WAF engages in Trap-Neuter-Return of feral cats, animal adoptions, low cost spay-neuter programs and numerous animal concerns campaigns.
The World Animal Foundation Monkey Hollow Wildlife Sanctuary is a 28 acre wildlife refuge located in Oneida along the Cumberland Plateau in the Appalachian foothills of eastern Kentucky. The sanctuary is nestled in the Daniel Boone National Forest and supports a diverse array of forest, aquatic, wetland, and upland habitats. The steep hills have served to insulate and isolate, creating a special landscape of majestic forest and wildlands. The WAF Monkey Hollow Wildlife Sanctuary is a safe haven to many species of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and other wildlife including: black bears, deer, bobcats, chipmunks, squirrels, elk, fox, shrews, voles, opossums, skunks, raccoons, rabbits, wild turkeys, woodchucks, songbirds, hawks, owls, eagles, bats, vultures, hummingbirds, turtles, snakes, lizards, frogs, toads, salamanders and treefrogs. Monkey Hollow Wildlife Sanctuary consists of sloping hills, ridge top flats, narrow valleys, creeks and ponds, hardwood forests and bottom wildlands. The sanctuary provides habitat for all wildlife: large, small, endangered and common.
The World Animal Foundation Animal Orphanage & Retirement Center houses homeless dogs and cats awaiting forever homes. In addition, WAF utilizes volunteers to provide foster homes for animals awaiting adoption. WAF works with other nonprofit animal rescue groups and provides a nationwide database of shelter animals.
WAF has recruited members from around the globe to educate the public about environmental and animal issues. Our large and informative website acts as a one-stop information portal for people wishing to learn more about animals and the earth. Visitors can print dozens of free flyers and fact sheets and surf hundreds of articles regarding wildlife, endangered species, companion animals, aquatic animals and farm animals.
Membership in the organization is free. Donations are always appreciated and needed to carryout our crucial mission of helping animals and the planet.
