Dear friends and supporters,
many of you will have been wondering what organisational development means and what CAWG has been doing (apart from all our ongoing projects)!
We can now provide you with the first results and part of the plan that our consultant assisted us with developing! A big Thank you to all involved!
A world in which animals and the environment are respected and protected.
Mission : To improve the status and welfare of animals through the following programmes: –
- Advocacy – to inspire social change
- Education – to create an awareness of the interconnection between humans, animals and the environment
- Projects – that contribute to sustainable change.
Ways of Working
Committed, Caring, Cooperative, Educative, Honest, Professional
The ethical basis for CAWG’s policies is that it looks beyond the conservation of a species to the welfare of individual animals. It is CAWG’s belief that each individual has an intrinsic value, and should be respected and protected.
Animals have biologically determined instincts, interests and natures, and can experience pain. Thus CAWG believes that animals have the right to live their lives free from avoidable suffering at the hands of humans, rather than be used simply as ‘raw materials’ for the benefit of mankind. Indeed, CAWG believes that it is the duty of humans to provide for the welfare of other species.
CAWG believes that all animals kept by, or under the control of, humans must be kept in circumstances appropriate to their species. Further, where the physiological and behavioural needs of a species cannot be met, the species must not be kept by man.
CAWG believes that where the welfare of an animal under human control is in question, then the animal must be given the benefit of any doubt. Furthermore, the different purposes for which animals are used must be regularly re-evaluated.
