Animal welfare


Animal welfare means the individual protection of every animal, whether it is wild or in human care. It is a question of keeping animals in a proper manner, protecting animals during transport and slaughter.

An important pillar of animal welfare is voluntary animal welfare work. In particular, the animal welfare associations are to be mentioned here. The majority of animal welfare associations belong to the umbrella association of the German Animal Welfare Association and operate an animal shelter or an animal reception centre. Citizens also have the opportunity to place their pet in an animal boarding house during a holiday trip or in the event of illness.

The country supports animal welfare projects financially. In addition to the promotion of structural measures to improve the conditions for keeping animal shelters, projects aimed at improving animal welfare, as well as particularly animal-friendly farming conditions and the public evaluation of outstanding initiatives and merits in the field of animal welfare, are supported. Applications for funding can be found at the Ministry of Agriculture and environment, Unit 65, Animal Welfare.

Official veterinarians carry out regular and special monitoring checks and investigate complaints and complaints of animal welfare violations. They initiate fine proceedings or impose conditions on those responsible in order to remedy maladministration.
