Request advice on animal welfare


Animal welfare means the individual protection of every animal, regardless of whether it lives in the wild or is kept in human care. It is about species-appropriate husbandry, the protection of animals during transportation and slaughter.

Voluntary animal welfare work is an important pillar of animal welfare. The animal welfare associations are particularly worthy of mention here. The majority of animal welfare associations belong to the umbrella organization of the German Animal Welfare Association and run an animal shelter or an animal reception station. Citizens also have the option of taking their pet to a boarding kennel while they are on vacation or sick.

The state provides financial support for animal welfare projects. In addition to funding structural measures to improve housing conditions in animal shelters, projects that serve to improve animal welfare as well as particularly animal-friendly housing conditions and the public recognition of outstanding initiatives and achievements in the field of animal welfare are also funded. Applications for funding can be found at the Ministry of Agriculture and the Environment, Department 65, Animal Welfare.

Official veterinarians carry out regular and focused inspections and investigate complaints and reports of animal welfare violations. They initiate proceedings to impose fines or impose conditions on those responsible in order to eliminate abuses.
