FOUR PAWS is an international animal welfare organisation with headquarters in Vienna, Austria. Founded by Helmut Dungler in 1988, the organisation pleads for animal welfare through sustainable campaigns and projects. The work is based on substantiated research and scientific  expertise as well as intensive national and international lobbying. FOUR PAWS focuses on animals, that are directly under human control: stray dogs and stray cats, laboratory animals, farm animals, wild animals and companion animals but also bears, big cats and Orang-utans kept in inappropriate housing.


With offices in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Germany, Hungary, Netherlands, Romania, South Africa, Switzerland, United Kingdom and USA, FOUR PAWS directly and quickly aims to help animals in need. In 2013, the organisation celebrates its 25th anniversary in Austria.
