Founded in Danang, Vietnam in 2015, PFC serves the community by providing safety, medical treatment, and rehabilitation to help stray dogs and cats become adoptable, as well as a program aimed at the youth with the intents of informing them about humane animal welfare education. Our mission is to improve the welfare of animals by combating animal cruelty and pet overpopulation through education. We strive to inspire a greater sense of empathy and responsibility for pets. Ideally, communities and groups will stand up, raise their voices and take action towards improving animal rights. Empowering the youth to make a difference increases the potential of making a more caring, interactive and loving world.
- Children Changing the Future for Animals
PFC combats animal cruelty through a Community Educational Program for learners of all ages. We believe building awareness in the younger generation, while cultivating the bond between pets and peoples, leads to humane treatment for all.
Our learning program facilitates lessons of compassion and respect for animals. Activities and education are taught in English and Vietnamese with a variety of topics. Our educational team makes class visits in schools and provides an off-site lesson option. The proceeds from the course are used to benefit and provide for the animals in need.

Thus our main focus and reason why we are committed to educating, advocating, and raising awareness in the community and all of Southeast Asia is the canine and feline meat trade. The dog and cat meat trade is the greatest animal welfare concern, in Vietnam and in the world. It is the only trade known to encourage mass unregulated movement, slaughter, and sale of over 30 million dogs each year with Vietnam demanding the highest amount of meat. Not only do stolen pets and street dogs suffer unimaginably, this mass movement is a significant health risk and potential transmission of animal borne diseases to humans, particularly rabies. Studies have revealed a high incidence of rabies-infected dogs in restaurants, slaughterhouses, and markets throughout the region. This is a danger to pets, their owners, as well as all people.As of 2022, our results include:
How you can helpA pet is more than an animal, it is a friend that will give endless love. Pet owners are already well aware of this fact. Dogs and cats improve the quality of life by decreasing stress, lowering cholesterol, improving immunity and many more intangible benefits! If pets are the best medicine then why are so many neglected, homeless, and abused?
