AWF is dedicated to improving the welfare of animals through veterinary science, education and debate.

We need vets to support our work in a variety of ways by volunteering as AWF Representatives.
These are unpaid roles. We need a new Representative from the East of England region, which covers Cambridge, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk. 

We're recruiting for a part time (17.5 hrs pw, flexible working pattern) Development Officer following the retirement of the previous post holder. 

AWF plays an important role in educating owners and vets to provide the very best care for animals. This is a small charity governed by an enthusiastic board of trustees who are all qualified vets. We have close ties to the British Veterinary Association, the UK’s largest membership organisation for vets and are based at its Central London office.

We’re playing extra time in our competition where you can win tickets to the London Vet Show. Deadline extended to 4pm 29 September. GOOD LUCK!! 

We've got two passes to give away to the London Vet Show at Olympia Grand on 20-21 November!

For your chance to win tell us Twitter-style in 140 characters or less (including spaces) why you should win the tickets.

There are just three simple but important rules:

We are taking part in Remember A Charity Week from Monday 8th  to Sunday 14th September 2014 to help raise awareness of legacy giving.

A free seminar on the very topical issues of the pet travel scheme and illegally imported animals, is being offered by the City of London (the local authority which covers Heathrow).

Venue: City of London, Walbrook Wharf, 78-83 Upper Thames Street,  London EC4R 3TD
Date: 2 October 2014 from 11am to 2.30pm

The BVA Gala Dinner takes place during the London Vet Show on Thursday 20 November 7pm - 1am. 

Previously known as the BVA Banquet, the BVA Gala Dinner includes a drinks reception, three course dinner with wine, live music and entertainment, and dancing until 1am. Tickets cost  just £75 and the venue is only 10 minutes walk from the London Vet Show venue. 

Although the format has changed we are delighted  that the BVA has still found a place amongst the evening's fun for a raffle in support of AWF.

Medivet is supporting AWF as its charity of the year.

Medivet staff and clients across its 104 practices, will be organising and competing in lots of exciting events to raise vital funds for AWF including a special AWF Week from 4th – 11th October 2014.

AWF will use funds raised during the campaign on projects to improve pet owner education, including a film to unravel some of the mysteries of cat behaviour.

It's not surprising that Louise Logan loves animals - she's a vet. But when she explains the difference that animals have made to her life since she suffered a stroke three years ago, the story becomes more complex and heart-warming.

In September Louise will be cycling across the UK - west-bound for the Stroke Association and east-bound for AWF.
