Public concern over the use of animals by human society is deepening. Still this awareness is dogged by the lack of a clear and objective exposition of the issues involved as well as a sense of possible conflict between human and animal welfare. Animal Welfare addresses these dilemmas - what is the actual scale of the animal welfare problem; where does responsibility begin; what positive steps are actually being taken to alleviate animal suffering; can a rational and compelling argument be given for the importance of animal welfare? It provides a comprehensive guide to the uninformed as well as to those who have knowledge of the issues but lack conviction. This book charts new ground, specifically, in its negotiation of a definition of 'animal welfare', in its systematic discussion of the organizations actually involved in the protection and promotion of animal well-being, and in its fundamental association of the positive action needed to improve human/animal interaction with the responsibilities pertaining to citizenship.
