AWF was set up in 1983 by vets with a passion to improve the welfare of all animals through veterinary science, education and debate. It's still run by vets and this professional approach underpins all our work. We have a unique insight into the many challenges facing us in animal welfare and the expertise and passion to find and deliver solutions.
Through AWF funding, new diagnostics and treatments have been developed for a range of conditions in cattle, sheep, and horses, and cats have benefitted from pioneering work into pain management. .
But, this is a competitive world and AWF is a small charity which is totally dependent on the generosity of people like you to enable this important work to continue. Spare a moment to see what we have achieved and what we are aspiring to do in the years ahead.
