ANIMAL WELFARE INSPECTIONS: IN THE FIGHT AGAINST CRUELTY TO ANIMALS
Almost every day, cases of poor animal husbandry, animal hoarding or animal cruelty are reported to them. They investigate these by researching, collecting evidence and carrying out animal welfare inspections on site. It is not uncommon for them to be able to take the abused animals, have them treated by a veterinarian, and place them in one of their animal welfare facilities.
In most cases they file a complaint and try to improve the situation of the affected animals by all legal means.
The goal of the global society is to teach children within the children animal protection vacations, playfully already at the young age a kind-fair and good handling with animals. In addition, they deal with topics such as sustainability, species protection, veterinary medicine/care and environmental protection in groups.
