  • Sundays: 2nd, 9th, 16th, and 23rd

The core mission of Animal Aid Abroad is to relieve suffering, abuse and pain.

According to their website, AAA has partnered with the Nowzad Equine Clinic in Afghanistan, Animal Friends Jogja and Gili Eco-Trust in Indonesia, among several other organisations from many countries across the globe.
