 The Animal Welfare Collaborative (TAWC)
is a society-driven network of individuals, organisations, and companies working together to
improve animal welfare.

We all care about animals and want the best lives possible for them.

We believe that by working together, we can improve the welfare of animals more effectively than by working alone.

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.


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.

The Animal Welfare Collaborative is an impact initiative of The University of Queensland. The network is facilitated by active researchers at The University of Queensland, The University of Newcastle, The University of Western Australia, and The University of Adelaide.
