A Europe that cares for animals
A Europe where the well-being of all animals is assured, and where they experience a good life
As the pan-European animal advocacy organisation, the primary focus of Eurogroup for Animals is to improve the well-being of as many animals as possible and defend animals’ interests. We do this by achieving better legislation, standards, enforcement and societal attitudes, through a united community of animal protection organisations and via lawful means.
The voice for animals in EuropeFor 40 years, we have worked with our members to measurably improve the protection of animals.
