Animal-Kind International

Kindness to Animals has no Boundaries

During the COVID-19 crisis, our Partners are continuing to work. Animals at their shelters and street cats and dogs still need to be fed, loved, and provided with vet care; cruelty cases still need to be dealt with; injured animals need to be picked up and treated.  Some programs have been suspended-for example, in-school Humane Education lessons; some have had to adapt their work. No matter what the status, our Partners need your help now and will need your help as their work resumes. We are so grateful for your continued support during this very difficult time. Please check each of our Partner pages for their status during the crisis.  Also, see our article on the Drifter's Guide site for ideas about how you can help AKI-supported organizations during these challenging times. 


BREAKING NEWS! AKI's 3rd Annual Africa-Based Animal Welfare Organization Grant Program will be accepting proposals from June 1-July 15, 2020.


We've added a new Partner Organization in 2020-Bam Animal Clinics-Uganda. We'll be supporting Bam in their work helping donkeys in eastern Uganda.


Animal-Kind International supports animal rescue and protection organizations in poor countries, primarily in Africa, a part of the world that is most overlooked by donors, most in need of our support, and where amazing local people and organizations are working every day to save animals, improve their lives, and change the way animals are treated.


Our secondary focus area is Latin America-Caribbean.


Strengthening local animal rescue and protection organizations is the key to systemic, sustained improvements in animal welfare.


Currently, your donations to Animal-Kind International are helping AKI Partner Animal Protection Organizations in:

  • Ghana

  • Liberia

  • Namibia

  • South Sudan

  • Tanzania

  • Uganda

  • Armenia

  • Honduras

  • Jamaica

And now, through our Africa-Based Animal Welfare Organization Grant Program, your donations also reach our grant recipients. Our 2019 grant recipients work in: Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo, Egypt, Mozambique, Zambia, Zimbabwe, South Africa, & Uganda. Thanks to your donations to AKI, we've been able to help animals in 17 countries during 2019.

AKI-supported organizations work in resource-poor countries, where raising money for animal welfare is extremely difficult.

AKI closely tracks the use of AKI donor funds so that you can be sure your donations are used to improve the lives of animals where your help is needed most.
