AWF is committed to improving the welfare of all animals through veterinary science, education and debate.
We apply the knowledge, skill and compassion of veterinary surgeons in an effective way through projects and activities that find practical solutions to animal welfare problems.
Our trustees are all qualified vets.Vets are involved in all aspects of animal care which gives us a unique insight into the problems in animal welfare and possible solutions.
AWF was established in 1983 by members of the British Veterinary Association with the proceeds of a legacy. We will be celebrating our 30th anniversary in 2013. Find out more about our first 30 years.
