Animal Welfare Week 2018
12th - 18th March

What is Animal Welfare Week?

It is an international event in which not only every IVSA Member Organisation but also vets and other organisations can take part. The aim is to raise awareness on important animal welfare issues worldwide.

How can I take part?

There are no limits to your creativity! You can organise everything - from a photo contest, a spay campaign, lectures, discussions to online surveys or bake sales - as long as it has an animal welfare related content. 
Share your events with your colleagues around the world by using the hashtag
#ivsaanimalwelfare2018 and post your events and pictures in the Animal Welfare Week Facebook event

Out of all the great projects the different Member Organisations had organised, we selected IVSA Sulaymaniyah to be the winner of Animal Welfare Week 2018. Congratulations!

Additionally, all participants will be featured in our very first SCAW Journal so stay tuned!

We had great success during animal welfare week with many IVSA chapters getting involved. We were extremely happy to see the response and see so many people getting involved to have a positive impact on animal welfare worldwide!

We asked the different universities to send us a report of what they did during the week. Click the word document logo after the name of the chapters to read their reports!
