RSPCA Animal Welfare Seminar 2024

RSPCA Animal Welfare Seminar 2024
Through their eyes: Strengthening our relationship with animals

  • Online
  • 21 - 22 Feb 2024

Many of us value the relationship we have with animals in our daily lives. Think of the excited pooch waiting at the door when we get home from work, the snuggles from a cat, chatting with a budgie or lounging with a lizard, the assistance dog we depend on to help us with everyday tasks, or the therapy horse we rely on for emotional support.

But how often do we stop and consider how these animals experience that relationship with us?

The RSPCA Animal Welfare Seminar 2024 delved into our current knowledge of animals’ needs and wants, provided animal-centric opportunities to improve our relationship with animals who share our daily lives, and answered the question: what can we do to support their best life?

Recordings of the event can be found on the Resource Hub.
