CAWC Conference - 21 April 2012

The First CAWC Animal Welfare Conference: 21 April 2012
Share this post with your friends and colleagues...The College of Animal Welfare is proud to be hosting the first CAWC Animal Welfare Conference on Saturday 21 April 2012 at its new education and conference centre in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire!

CAWC, the Companion Animal Welfare Council, was launched in 1999 and was set up “to conduct independent studies into the welfare, care and treatment of companion animals and their role within society.” These studies have served as a foundation for the Council’s role as providers of specialist advice to organisations, institutions and Government.

The Conference is composed of a series of lectures and open forums and will be introduced by CAWC Chairman Lord Soulsby of Swaffham Prior. A number of distinguished speakers will be providing viewpoints on a wide range of animal welfare topics.

Professor Sheila Crispin FRCVS and Mr Peter Scott FRCVS will cover ethical issues pertaining to the keeping of small animals and exotics. Mr Peter C Jinman OBE MRCVS will explore large animal ownership, and will discuss the latest issues facing pet insurance in modern veterinary practice in an open forum with a number of the other expert speakers.

Mr Neil Forbes MRCVS will talk about problems that occur when people make bad choices in pet ownership. Professor Sir Colin Spedding CBE will chair the afternoon open forum, consisting of a discussion on education of the public in animal welfare issues.

An agenda and booking form can be found by contacting Deborah Gould at The College of Animal Welfare on 0844 372 9410.
