CAWC was launched on the 26th April 1999 and was set up to conduct independent studies into the welfare, care and treatment of companion animals and their role within society. The Council offers specialist advice, especially to organisations, institutions and Government primarily by publishing the results of their studies.

In this site you will be able to learn more details about us, our current work studies and topics we intend to study in the future. If you have any comments regarding CAWC or on companion animal welfare issues we would be delighted to hear from you.

With Best Wishes,

Lord Soulsby of Swaffham Prior, Chairman
