Europe: ENDCAP – Seeing an End to the Keeping and Exploitation of Wild Animals in Captivity for Human Entertainment


The European network to END the keeping of wild animals in CAPtivity

The Network


ENDCAP is a network of established European animal welfare organisations and wildlife professionals who share a common goal in wanting to see an end to the keeping and exploitation of wild animals in captivity for human entertainment.


Our Mission

ENDCAP is an international network of European organisations dedicated to the protection and conservation of wildlife in the wild and opposed to the exploitation of wild animals in captivity. Through scientific research, education, campaigning and sharing of expertise and information, the Network seeks to; expose neglect, suffering and cruelty endured by wild animals in zoological collections, circuses and dolphinaria; investigate the plight of wild animals held by private individuals and related trade issues; and, where possible, alleviate animal suffering. Focusing predominantly on the issues relating to zoos and circuses as well as the implementation and enforcement of national legislation stemming from Directive 1999/22/EC (relating to the keeping of wild animals in zoos), the Network aims to influence and encourage a change in priorities away from captivity, through a non-breeding and non-replacement policy, towards the protection of wild animals in their natural habitat.

India (Mumbai): ‘Ronnie’ and ‘Dannie’ Looking for New Homes



Dear Dog lover


Both have similar stories and looks, making you wonder if they were twins(not identical) lost in a Mela aka Bollywood. But alas, both were abandoned in two different parts of Mumbai City. Ronnie was thrown out of a car at Cuffe Parade one evening and Danny was found abandoned near the Lokhandwala mangroves at Andheri.


Danny is a white hairy male, Corgi-ish short and has been sterilized and vaccinated against 7-in-one and rabies. He is very playful and sweet but does not like other dogs or children very much.


Ronnie on the other hand is much younger around less than a year. He is also white with a grayish path on his face. He is very loving and will do ‘namaste’ to you if you come to meet him. Ronnie is shorter than an average dog just like a Corgi. He too has been sterilised and vaccinated.




Do call WSD if you or anyone you know are interested in adopting them. Call us on 64222838  or e-mail


Look up the WSD adoption blog for their photos.


thanks and regards
