"The Liberia Animal Welfare & Conservation Society (LAWCS) prevents animal cruelty and promotes kindness to all animals. LAWCS believes that equipping children with knowledge about the plight and welfare of animals is the best insurance against cruelty to all animals. We also enthusiastically believe that this message is best spread through children.
Our key activities include:
- Animal welfare awareness education and campaigns
- Dog bite prevention and rabies education
- Free veterinary services such as de-worming, treatment for mange and sores, hoof trimming, and rabies vaccines
- Rescuing and finding homes for animals
- Providing free, plant-based diets for schoolchildren"
How we helped
The donation from Lush will greatly help with education to change the negative attitudes and behaviors of people, including children, toward animals. The donation will also help to equip our future leaders with knowledge about the plight and welfare of animals and people in Liberia. These children will grow up as change agents for animals, the environment and human welfare.
