15 July 2021
European citizens are making their voices heard by joining the #NoAnimalLeftBehind campaign.
So far, over 100,000 people from all over the European Union and beyond have signed the petition, and the number keeps growing.
Europe’s animal welfare laws were introduced piece by piece over the last 40 years, but they are rarely enforced correctly, and there are serious gaps that leave millions of animals unprotected.
2021 offers a very important window of opportunity for animal welfare in the EU: In the context of the Farm to Fork Strategy, a policy initiative by the European Commission with the overarching aim of making European food systems fair, healthy and environmentally-friendly, the European Commission is currently assessing the animal welfare legislation to evaluate whether it is fit for purpose. A review like this is not only rare and long-overdue, but is in fact also the first of its kind for animal welfare legislation.
We must make sure a full-scale review takes place, that our demands for the best possible welfare standards are heard, and that no animal is left behind.
