At International Animal Rescue we do exactly what our name says – we save animals from suffering around the world. Our work includes cutting free and caring for dancing bears in India, rescuing primates from captivity in Indonesia and sterilising and vaccinating stray dogs and cats in developing countries.

As human populations expand, wildlife comes under increasing threat. By rescuing individual animals belonging to species like the orangutan and reintroducing them into protected areas in the wild, our work also plays a role in the conservation of the species as a whole.

Did you know...

  • We helped end the dancing bear trade in India. We achieved this by teaching bear owner’s alternative trades and skills that would allow them to earn a living without relying on the bear as a source of income.

  • We have the largest Slow Loris rescue centre in the world

  • We try and rehabilitate and release all of our rescued animals. However, in the cases where they cannot be re-released into the wild, we provide them with a permanent home.

  • Founded in 1989

What makes International Animal Rescue different
