WSPA stands for:
The World Society for the Protection of Animals works hard to stop cruelty to animals all over the world. Making cruelty to animals understandably unacceptable reduces the damage to animals and to humans too. It makes this world a better place for all of us.
As the human population increases on planet earth the potential suffering for all those other animals increases too. Most humans are compassionate by nature but all too often they are damaged and brutalised and as a consequence they abuse animals. As Pythagoras said "As long as man continues to be the ruthless destroyer of lower living beings he will never know health or peace. For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other." and conversely as long as humanity abuses itself it cannot help but abuse animals.
We all get the opportunity to do good things and helping support the innocent in the face of cruelty is one of them. It's interesting that helping animals has far more effect than just the good it does at the time. Supporting animals and standing against cruelty gives courage to more people to do the same. By supporting the World Society for the Protection of Animals you not only help reduce the appalling suffering of animals around the globe, which is magnificent in itself, but you also help more people in many countries stand against the tragic attitudes which can be dominant in certain societies and cultures.
If hurting animals is unacceptable then hurting humans is unacceptable too. That way less humans get hurt and less humans therefore hurt other humans or animals. It just works like that.
We are the dominant species on this planet at the moment and we have the opportunity to be benign and benevolent. Lets do it!
