About Us

The Animal Welfare Collaborative (TAWC) is a society-driven network for improving animal welfare. TAWC is a broad network of individuals, companies, and organisations working together to improve animal welfare. The network is facilitated by key Australian universities.

Our Vision

Continuous improvement in the welfare of animals.


Use evidence to drive collaborative engagement that contributes to positive change in the welfare of animals.
We bring people together to improve the welfare of animals.
Here’s how:

Effective Engagement

We believe that it is the coming together of multiple, diverse perspectives that forms the foundation of effective and sustainable approaches to improving animal welfare.
TAWC provides a safe forum for diverse groups to engage constructively around ways to improve animal welfare.

Information Exchange

We believe that people with animals under their care should have access to current and comprehensive information on animal welfare to inform their decisions.
TAWC provides a swift vehicle for different people and sectors to exchange critical information on animal welfare and coordinate action.

Targeted Action

We believe that anyone who wants to improve the welfare of the animals under their care should be supported in doing so.
TAWC provides a supportive environment for those with animals under their care and a clear process for them to make tangible and ongoing improvements in animal welfare.
