About us

The foundation “Menschen für Tiere” (People for Animals) is a non-profit foundation under civil law with its headquarters in Berlin. It was founded in 2003 by the association “aktion tier - menschen für tiere e.V.” (Animal Action - People for Animals). aktion tier e.V. was not only the founder of the foundation Menschen für Tiere, but also supported us significantly in all our activities.In accordance with its statutes, the foundation is committed to animal welfare and nature conservation. A special emphasis of the activities lies thereby on the work with children and young people, in order to give them a responsible handling with the animals as fellow creatures. At the same time, therapeutic measures are taken within the framework of individual projects to alleviate the long-term consequences of e.g. illnesses in traumatised children by dealing with animals. Animal welfare education and visit programs for children and young people in animal welfare institutions as well as special educational offers in school facilities round off the activities of the foundation.
