Mission Statement

The Animal Welfare Promotion and Services Directorate’s mission is to promote and safeguard the welfare of all animals, dedicating its resources to improving the lives and wellbeing of animals through education and public awareness.  Animals are morally entitled to pursue their lives free of any human violence, maltreatment or distress and should be free from coerced physical and psychological suffering.  We believe that the people who keep, utilize and care for animals have a duty to assure the wellbeing of their animals; providing appropriate housing, nutrition, medical care, humane treatment and handling.  The Directorate is committed to strengthen the human-animal bond and safeguard the rights of responsible animal owners, enthusiasts and professionals through research, public information and sound public policy.
The Animal Welfare Directorate is devoted to ending the suffering, abuse, and exploitation of animals through information, education, and advocacy and has been working relentlessly to enforce the Maltese Legislations and EU Regulations that mandate the proper treatment of animals and instigate penalties for animal abuse.
