The Animal Protection Index establishes a classification of 50 countries around the world according to their commitments to protect animals and improve animal welfare in education, policy, and legislation.

Rankings are on a scale of A to G, with those countries receiving a G rating the ones identified as needing the most improvement. Each country is rated in five different categories: recognizing animal protection; governance structures and systems; animal welfare standards; providing humane education; promoting communication and awareness.
