Animal Politics

We decided to create CAP on the basis of an observation: for several years, the animal cause has become a real social issue and public opinion is showing, over the surveys, more and more sensitive to the fate reserved for animals. However, this societal demand has so far not translated into concrete changes in the legislation, as political decision-makers have not really taken up the issue.

However, it seemed to us that the action of animal protection associations at the political level was not always sufficient to allow a real mobilization of political personnel. Few associations developed an action in the direction of this one and those which did it carried out rather an "expert" lobbying work (production of amendments, proposals for laws, reports, participation in technical meetings, etc.), but no “relational” lobbying, aimed at establishing long-term ties with sympathetic elected representatives. Parliamentarians were thus approached on an ad hoc basis, on specific subjects, but without a long-term follow-up capable of forming a network and keeping it alive. Added to this was a lack of consultation among associations, sometimes leading to a lack of clarity of demands for politicians and therefore a brake on action.

What is more, since the animal cause is a somewhat taboo subject and deemed to have little legitimacy in the political sphere (which, thanks to a significant sociological renewal of elected officials at least as far as the National Assembly is concerned, is beginning to change), the parliamentarians wishing to act on these subjects and not necessarily having identified with each other, sometimes felt too isolated to act, fearing to see themselves marginalized. This lacked a facilitator and events allowing them to meet, as organized by our opponents (hunters, promoters of intensive farming, etc.).

Finally, the sympathetic parliamentarians not having for the most part a good knowledge of the animalist associations, they lacked a clearly identified interlocutor, able to put them in contact with associations specializing in the subjects which interested them, or to constitute an intermediary in order to carry out with these associations a work of synthesis at their request.

Driven by a desire for justice and progress, the Animalist Party promotes an evolution of society that takes into account the interests of animals and that rethinks the relationship between animals and humans.

The purpose of the Animalist Party is:

  • to develop perspectives and a program taking into account the interests of animals;

  • to include in public policies taking into account the interests of animals as well as respect for their resources, their territories, their habitats and their mobility;

  • to mobilize society and take any action initiative in line with this development;

  • to present or support in the various elections candidates carrying the values ​​of the party;

  • to submit to public debate and to electoral ballots its proposals for modifying public policies and to promote them in all institutions.

There may be no fighting but there is one fight and that is against violence, One Voice acts to reverse it wherever it develops and on whoever the victim is. It defends animal and planetary ethics. It fights for all sentient beings, for the recognition of the status of animal personhood and the "link" between violence to animals and humans.

Gandhi has shown that non-violence is not a utopia. It is a path of wisdom and political action capable of meeting the challenges of our time. This is the way One Voice has chosen how it fights, the only way that is respectful of all and is able to reverse acts of cruelty.

Animal Volunteering

Our goal: to end animal exploitation and preserve the planet, through the practice of benevolent activism ✊

To do this, we work on three main areas which are: animals, health and the environment.

The main objective of the association is to encourage the general public to turn to a vegan lifestyle, with all that that implies: no animal exploitation, whether in terms of food, clothing, entertainment or everyday products.

Vegan Impact is an abolitionist association, which means that the ultimate goal of our work is to obtain the end of animal exploitation, in all its forms.

Animal Associations

The Society for the Protection of Animals (SPA) is the leading animal welfare association in France. A mission to fight against abuse and abandonment.

Association for the protection of wild animals. A free association for free animals. 100% independent

🐺🍃🐾 Expect to see lots of cute photos of foxes, badgers, deers and loads more endangered animals.

Adoption for cats and dogs. The core belief is that the key to the best adoptive forever family pairing is to first place our animals within safe, experienced foster homes. Here they blossom as they relax, learn, and grow, while they are assessed for adoption. When they are ready, the right match is more important than location – be that in France or further afield.

ll the animals we help will be placed in foster families or will be adopted immediately to their for ever home.

We are not a shelter, with us the animals will always be placed in a home environment, whether it is with their foster family or their new for ever home.

Acting for a better world, for all living beings.

Values ​​are not just words, they live through our actions.

DDZ was founded with the ambition to reconcile humans and animals.

There are undoubtedly ways of reconciling human activities and the preservation of the lives of other living beings: questioning these means of coexisting makes it possible to explore issues that go beyond personal and organizational interests.

Défense de l'Animal is a national confederation of 270 associations and shelters sharing common values ​​for the defense of animals. 🐶🐱🐰🐴

Founded in 1928 and recognized as being of public utility, the Animal Defense association federates the largest French animal protection network, present in 97 metropolitan and overseas departments. Every day, everywhere in France, our network feeds and cares for more than 30,000 animals that have been abandoned, found stray or mistreated.

The Reflection and Action Group for Animals, created in 1997, is committed to respecting animal welfare.

Helping shelters.

Animal Sanctuaries

For over 30 years, Brigitte Bardot put its international reputation and his inexhaustible energy for animals.

Nearly 600 animals live in harmony on the farm-refuge of the association. Dogs, cats, horses, ponies, donkeys, cows, goats ... The shelter does not only welcome pets, but also farm animals that were destined for the slaughterhouse, abused, malnourished

You can adopt a hen and rescue it from the abattoir. Ensuring happy end of lives for chickens.

Our vision is to create a peaceful world for all living beings; a world built on justice and respect, regardless of species. Our passion is to enable each individual in our care to live a long and fulfilling life within a safe, caring and compassionate environment.
