Improvements in animal welfare are dependent on animal welfare science and although there is a great deal known about animal welfare there remain large areas of knowledge about animal welfare that require further scientific research.
The AVA's Animal Welfare Trust represents the AVA in action in improving animal welfare by supporting research to improve animal welfare and stimulating public interest in animal welfare.
The Animal Welfare Trust is unique in that it was established by the veterinary profession to fund research and education programs with the aim to make a positive and significant difference to animal welfare.
Please help the Trust in it's endeavours to support researchers and educators and be a 'public face' for the AVA to demonstrate that we really do care for the welfare of animals in our care.
You can do this by giving the small (or even bigger!) donation to the Trust, display the AWT leaflets in your waiting room, make a donation on behalf of a client's special pet and include an AWT leaflet in any sympathy card.
With the AVA's commitment to improving animal welfare there is no better time to support the AWT.
The current leaflet can be found here.
