Animal Welfare

 “Some people talk to animals. Not many listen to them. That’s the problem.” (A.A. Milne)

An animal is in good welfare condition if it is healthy, comfortable, well fed, safe, able to express innate forms of behaviour and if it does not suffer from unpleasant sensations of pain, fear or distress, according to the definition of the Terrestrial Animal Health Code of the OIE (World Organisation for Animal Health).

At the Foundation we want to support animal welfare in all areas. We defend a dignified life for both domestic and wild animals, for companion animals and food animals, for pets and stray animals, promoting health measures that help to control feral populations (sterilisation, vaccinations, etc.), and supporting movements that put an end to the confinement of animals, such as circuses, shows or zoos.
