The DRF is a UK organisation that is standing up for the voluntary dog rescue sector.

It does so by engaging in local council and other partnerships and by conducting its own independent national surveys.
Animal Care Treatment International Network (ACTIN)
The mission of this organisation is to protect animals in Spain from cruelty; to educate people against neglect; and to change, improve and implement animal protection laws. Knowledge on animal law is lacking in Spain in all areas of society, and the organisation, which works with one of the country's three lawyers that specialises in animal welfare, is also setting up an education programme for those in authority such as the police, vets, or civil servants working at the town hall. ACTIN has co-organised the country's first animal welfare conference.
