UIPA is the oldest civil association in Brazil, responsible for the institution of the Movement of Animal Protection in the country, in the nineteenth century. In 1893, the Swiss Henri Ruegger arranged to report the ill-treatment to which a horse was subjected, in the central area of São Paulo, but was indignant when he learned that there was no animals. Inspired by Henri Ruegger, the journalist Furtado Filho published an article on ill-treatment in the "Popular Diary", giving rise to numerous demonstrations, calling on society to raise a voice against the mistreatment inflicted on animals.
