Petition to demand that the EU create a Directorate-General for Animal Welfare

Sign this important petition here.

This petition calls on the EU to create a specific Directorate-General for Animal Welfare. It will be the role of this body to represent animal welfare at the highest levels within the EU, to propose laws to benefit animal welfare, and to champion animal welfare on a wider international stage on behalf of the EU. The D-G for animal welfare will be the new keeper of the conscience for the EU and will ensure a new relationship develops between humanity and the other “sentient” species with which we share the planet.
