RESPONSIBLE PET OWNERSHIP

Pet owners have a responsibility to help care for and protect their pets.  Laws on animal welfare are different throughout Europe but we encourage all our members to promote responsible pet ownership. Here you can watch our video – and also view our Resources for Schools section, which demonstrates FEDIAF’s work encouraging children to understand the importance of caring for pets – from an early age.

COUNCIL OF EUROPE

The Convention for the Protection of Pet Animals aims essentially at assuring the welfare of animals, and in particular, of pet animals kept for private enjoyment and companionship.
