Letter From President
We founded RASPA because we are concerned about very
precarious condition of treatment to animals in Russia. Our main
objective is to work with animal protection groups and profes-
sionals in the United States and by adopting their experience,
help Russia to change the present situation and conditions for
RASPA has established relationships with the Fund for Animals,
the Humane Society of the United States, the Animal Legal
Defense Fund and other animal protection groups, and by stu-
dying their work with animals, we are developing humane programs
which will will address the current needs of animals in Russia.
Russia is experiencing tremendous changes- the end of the Cold
War, a new market with free economy but not, just positive
and promising future, the present conditions, unfortunately,
are not working for the benefit of animals.
The situation with animals in Russia is so difficult and events are
developing so fast that most Russian animal protection groups
cannot cover even a small persentage of the existing problems
and in general suffer themselves. Besides the poor finacial
situation of these groups, most of them also need education in animal
protection issues and management.
Hopefully, once you are up to date on the situation, you might
be willing to join our group and contribute to our onging efforts.
Having understood the negative pressure of political and economic
circumstances, we are trying to bring changes for the new society,
which is still emerging, and we belive that the new Russian
generation must stand for humanity. Thanks you for your support
to make the world a more compassionate place for all living
