Animal Balance is a global non-profit (ID 68-0630714) dedicated to creating positive change on islands around the world.  With the help of our local partners, we create community-based population management programs for dogs and cats.

We believe communities throughout the world wish to embrace cats and dogs and protect them with kindness and compassion. Through our foundational belief, we strive to protect the human-animal bond.
