Our Mission

To facilitate training, education and dialogue for animal welfare by bringing together veterinarians, animal scientists, and other stakeholders to improve animal wellbeing.

The goals are these:

  • To provide a neutral platform for animal welfare issues to be identified, discussed, and science-based and ethical solutions to be explored.
  • To positively impact animal health and welfare by expanding educational opportunities in the areas of research and training, leading to board certification in the American College of Animal Welfare.
  • To encourage faculty to engage in collaborative animal welfare research and outreach activities.
  • A major focus will be to develop curriculum and trainings to educate students, veterinarians, first responders, government agency representatives, and community members in emergency and disaster prevention and response methods for animals.
