OIPA Cameroon is a non-governmental organization (NGO) that promotes humane treatment of animals, conservation, and protection from animal cruelty. We rely on the help of volunteers, fundraising and donations to carry out this important work. OIPA Cameroon operates the first and only mobile veterinary clinic that provides much needed health care to animals in rural communities.

Founded in 2012, OIPA Cameroon is well known for rescuing, protecting and promoting humane treatment of all animals. The organization is a delegation of OIPA International in Milan, Italy. The organization has been vetted and approved by the Cameroon government. OIPA Cameroon is the only organization to date that provides free, much-needed health care to animals in rural communities.

We firmly believe that educating younger generations is the best way to raise standards of animal care in the future and encourage school children to be concerned about the welfare of animals. In the last nine years we have seen an encouraging change in attitudes towards animals from children and community members, though there is still a long way to go.

Our Mission and Vision:

OIPA Cameroon’s vision is a Cameroon society living with happy and healthy animals, showing compassion towards them. Our mission is to care for animals and protect them from stress and cruelty through rescue, education, conservation and enforcement of animal welfare laws in Cameroon.
