Liberia Animal Welfare and Conservation Society
Founder and Program Coordinator
Liberia Animal Welfare and Conservation
The Liberia Animal Welfare and
Conservation Society is a local
community based non-for-profit
making animal welfare
organization registered with the
government of Liberia.
To create a caring and socially
responsible society where animals
are treated as sentient beings.
A world where animals are treated
with compassion and respect.
Liberia has suffered years of exceptionally
violent and traumatic civil war. The country is
just recovering amidst an almost
overwhelming number of challenges
including rampant abuse of animals.
LAWCS is committed to the recovery with a
clear message of non-violence, conservation
of nature and promotion of the well-being of
animals, humans and the environment.
LAWCS demonstrates this
commitment by actively engaging
children, youths, community groups,
learning institutions, media and
community leaders with its humane
education programmes and by
providing veterinary services for
animals in need.
Our aim is to continue to raise
public awareness in Liberia about
the welfare of animals. Education is
the key to ending animal cruelty and
creating a better future for animals
and humans. Our interactive
programmes take place in schools
and education centers and reach
over 15,000 children per year.
These equip children with
knowledge about animals and they
promote positive attitudes, build
empathy, foster responsible
behavior and inspire them to make a
difference. We are ensuring that
today’s children grow up with
empathy and respect for all animals
and each other.
Humane Education is about
fostering kindness, respect and
empathy for animals, people and
the environment and recognizing
the interdependence of all living
We continue to encourage
people to stop the unnecessary
pain, suffering, loneliness,
sadness, and death, even
extinction we causing for other
Coexisting compassionately with
animals will make us better
human beings and make our lives
easier. Compassion can lead to
justice for all.
Cruelty is also a threat to peace
and stability. When people do not
value the lives of other creatures,
they stop valuing one another’s
life. For whatever happens to
animals, soon happens to human.
All things are connected. There is
a clear link established between
cruelty to animals and violence
against humans (
“Love animals … Do not trouble
their joy, do not harass them, do
not deprive them of their
happiness, do not work against
God’s intent”. Fyodor
Dostoyevsky – Russian writer
