WELCOME TO ANIMAL WELFARE AND PROTECTION ORGANIZATION (AWPO)
We provide voluntary / non-profit making services to reduce unnecessary pain and suffering by improving compassion and kindness to animals through advocacy. Advocacy here involves: multi-media population awareness creation; improving education – training – skills – competences of stakeholders on kindness to animals and use of outreach services.
Outreach services here are mainly issued to animals which belong to the vulnerable / disadvantaged communities. Such services include: provision of primary animal health and animal welfare care; animal population control by neutering (spaying, castration); other surgical and non-surgical (chemical) methods and rescue of animals abandoned - stray - homeless or animals involved in man-made and natural emergencies by providing shelter - care - protection. We also put to painless permanent sleep (euthanasia) of animals who prognosis is hopeless to save them from further unnecessary pain and suffering.
