Be a voice for the animals and take action with Animals Australia
You can help create a kinder world for the animals. Animals, like us, are emotional beings. Their desire to be free from suffering is not unlike our own. Yet unlike us, they cannot vote, object, or speak out against violence — making animals among the most exploited, and in need of our protection.
It is up to us to be their voice.
Animals Australia – the voice for the animals
Animals Australia is Australia’s foremost national animal protection organisation, representing some 40 member societies and thousands of individual supporters. Animals Australia has an unprecedented track record in investigating and exposing animal cruelty and for conducting world-first strategic public awareness campaigns.
Animals Australia’s vision is a world where all animals are treated with compassion and respect and are free from cruelty. They believe that we can create a kinder world for all by fostering respect for animals and that our treatment of animals reflects who we are as individuals and as a society.
What can we do?
Most Australians — regardless of what they choose to eat — care about animals, and support action that helps protect them from cruelty. Animals raised for food outnumber humans by a staggering degree — yet they are underrepresented to an equally staggering degree. They cannot vote. They cannot cry out against cruelty. They have no voice to oppose injustice. Most are not even afforded the same basic legal protection from cruelty that protects our pets at home… In short, they need the voice of every caring person willing to speak up for them.
So, Animals Australia does not exist to represent vegetarians, vegans, or meat-eaters. They exist to represent animals. And they stand side-by-side with every person who wishes to see them protected from cruelty and who wishes to join us to create a kinder, more compassionate world.
Supporting Animals Australia
The Wishing Well was established in 2010 to offer children in out-of-home care, such as foster care and residential care, a range of healing and treatment options usually not accessible as a free therapy in mainstream health.
The Wishing Well raises funds to enable children and young people to access developmentally-appropriate and trauma-informed treatments shown to be highly effective in dealing with severe trauma and neglect. These therapies respond to the unique needs of each child and young person.
The Wishing Well is a not-for-profit incorporated charity organisation, established and managed by people seeking to improve outcomes for children and young people in out-of-home care and their families. The Wishing Well recognises the importance of the act of giving. We recognise the significance of the participation of community members and all donations are most appreciated.
The Wishing Well operates ethically, effectively and empathically with a view to achieving quality outcomes and a satisfying working environment, and as such we support organisations that encompass similar ideals.
The Wishing Well gratefully receives donations, funding and resources through bequests, corporate partnerships, fundraising events, grants, online donations and other fund raising activities. Money donated to The Wishing Well enables traumatised children access to healing therapies. Please see our website for more information:
