WUFAW

Women United for Animal Welfare

We are a global foundation founded by five women focused on improving animal welfare locally and abroad through direct action in the field.

We work with foreign and local partners to help set up education programs, build sanctuaries, provide low cost veterinary care, and many other acts that enhance the lives of animals.

Help Save the Stray Pigs of Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico Strong

Our trip to Puerto Rico was a success. WUFAW joined the Spayathon put on by Vets for PR and The Humane Society in November. Over 8000 animals were spayed and neutered in the 8 days of the event.

Cofounder Dr. Natalia Soto performed nearly 300 surgeries herself while the rest of the team volunteered in the recovery area. It was a whirlwind week full of excitement and exhaustion.  Learn more...
