The Importance of Animal Welfare: Why it Matters and How to Make a Difference - -  -

The Importance of Animal Welfare.

Thankfully there is a growing concern for animal welfare across the world. We have seen a welcome increase in campaigns, causes, and discussions around the treatment of animals, especially those used for food production and research purposes. This article looks at why it matters and give you some tips on how you can make a difference.

As more conscious consumers become involved through social media threads, than ever before, and as a result, businesses are having to take note of their practices and change accordingly. It’s no longer just about cost, but how ethically produced your goods are. However the change is slow, and often a token gesture rather than a wholesale sustainable approach.

However people want to know where their food comes from, how it was produced and what standards were met along the way. And this extends beyond just meat production. With these ideas in mind, here is an exploration of why animal welfare matters and ways you can make a difference right now!

Those of us who have had pets recognize that animals have personalities, feelings and a dignified character.

They deserve to be treated well, not as an expendable commodity. We encourage you to learn about where your food comes from, the practices of the producers, and whether or not they are humane, ethical and care about animal welfare.

Where you discover they are not, please vote with your wallet. Only buy from ethical companies, and be sure to visit the social media accounts of unethical companies and voice your concern.
