WSAVA and World Animal Protection join forces to promote animal welfareWSAVA and World Animal Protection join forces to promote animal welfare

The World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA) and World Animal Protection have joined forces to promote animal welfare around the world.

The two organisations signed a memorandum of understanding at the WSAVA World Congress in Cape Town, South Africa, agreeing to work together towards four key goals - to raise awareness globally of animal welfare issues, to promote animal welfare education, to deliver companion animal programmes including humane and sustainable population management and canine rabies control, and to engage the global veterinary community on animal welfare and ethical issues.
