Should there be a Directorate-General for Animal Welfare in EU


Every day animals in the European Union suffer insufferable neglect and abuse. Animals are too often seen as disposable property in the European Union.

That is why it is crucial to create a specific Directorate-General for Animal Welfare so animal welfare is represented at the highest levels of the EU.

I just signed a petition asking for the creation of a specific Directorate-General for Animal Welfare in the EU. Will you sign too? Here’s a link to the petition:

Animal welfare is a Global issue. We are all connected in this modern world.


As Jeremy Bentham said in 1789: “The question is not, Can animals reason? nor, Can they talk? but, Can they suffer?”

Thank you for using your voice to help animals in Europe.
