Animal World USA International is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the welfare of animals and is working with organizations, decision makers and the public-at-large to bring about awareness as to the plight of the animals of our world. Our mission is to create a better understanding and underscore respect for all the planet's amazing animals through a strengthening of communities across the globe.

Working with governors,educational institutions, shelters, humane societies, youth groups, living-assisted homes, hospitals, legislators and animal advocates, the AW-USA Weeks campaign is demonstrating that the concept of coalition-building is the future in building strong and unified communities.
