  • Recognition of animals as sentient beings.

  • Building relationships by partnering with local communities and organisations.

What Makes CPI Different

  • Impact-driven and data-led - we are very much about measuring our impact.  Data collection is at the forefront of everything we do.

  • Innovative - we are always looking for new and better ways to work and continually seek to learn.

  • Versatile and adaptable - we understand that nothing ever goes as planned and will always try our best to adapt to each change and challenge that comes our way.

  • Strong and dedicated team - we value each and every member of our team. Our team is made up of animal enthusiasts from around the world.  They all play an important role in running Compassionate Paws, from providing veterinary care, to making sure we're spreading the word about what we do.
