CCA welcomes the inauguration of President Joe Biden, only the second Catholic to be US President after President John F. Kennedy.

We look forward to the US rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement and CCA will be working with animal advocacy colleagues and others in the United States in the run up to and preparation for COP 26.

Our Mission is the advancement of Christian respect and responsibility for the animal creation with special reference to Catholic teaching and beliefs.


The charity meets its objective of advancing Christian respect and responsibility for the animal creation through the production of its magazine, The Ark, which is issued three times a year, and through its website and social media outreach. The Chief Executive promotes the work of the charity by engaging with other organisations and giving presentations.

Public Benefit

The charity provides a public benefit by producing educational material and giving talks on the empathetic treatment of animals, based on the teachings of the Catholic Church, which gives a moral benefit to the human community.


The charity has a high impact by informing and educating on the issues of Animal Advocacy among the Catholic world population at all levels, from the Vatican as the Catholic Church’s highest institution to individual Catholics throughout the world. The Charity also works very closely with other Animal Advocate organisations and individuals worldwide.
