The animal protection organizations are very much concerned of animal welfare. This is focused on the animals’ well-being. The standards of this would vary between various contexts. These standards are reviewed often and they are being debated, revised and created by so many animal welfare groups, academics and legislators in so many parts of the world.

You should know that the animal welfare science employs various measures like longevity, disease, physiology, immunosuppression and reproduction but there is also a debate on which of these indicators provide the best information.

Moreover, the concern for the animal welfare is usually based on the idea that the non-human animals should be given the consideration of their suffering or well-being especially if they are under the care of the humans. Such concerns may include how the animals are being slaughtered for food and how they are being employed in scientific research and also how they are kept in the circuses, zoos and farms and others.

Animal welfare was also concerned of some of the ancient civilizations but is starting to make a bigger place in the Western public policy in Great Britain in the 19th century. It was in the 21st century that a big focus of interest in ethics as well as science was made available and the animal welfare organizations also came up.

In offering good animal welfare, this is defined as a list of positive conditions that should be provided to the animals. Such approach is taken by the 5 Freedoms which are the freedom from hunger and thirst in which there must be a ready access to a diet that can help maintaining vigor and health and also a ready access to fresh water. Also, there must be freedom from discomfort and this is offering the right environment which includes shelter and a comfortable resting place. There must also be the freedom from pain, injury and disease that is by preventing diseases or injuries and the fast diagnosis and treatment. The animals must be allowed to show the most normal behavior and they should be free from distress and fear.
