ANIPLANT is an independent membership organization dedicated to the protection of animals. ANIPLANT is a non-government organization. They do not receive any help from the Cuban government. ANIPLANT is officially recognized by the Cuban government, which is important because Cuban law permits only one organization to function in each field of endeavor. Thus, ANIPLANT is the only animal protection organization legally permitted to function in Cuba.
ANIPLANT depends on donated funds and dues in order to operate. It is not permitted to advertise, so ANIPLANT activities are restricted to what can be done with an uncertain income stream. ANIPLANT's headquarters is in Havana, but they provide services in other parts of the country.
