Animal Welfare Publications

The Animal Welfare Institute publishes books, reports, and brochures on a variety of topics. Most of our materials are provided free to those who can put them directly to use helping animals, and at cost for all others.

Libraries may obtain one free copy of all publications. A number of books listed in the Animals in Laboratories section are also available at no cost to research facilities.

AWI reserves the right to limit the number of brochures per order or to charge a nominal fee on large orders to cover the cost of printing and shipping.

All publications can be ordered online by following the topic area links
in the menu to the left or at the bottom of this page,
or by calling (202) 337-2332.

AWI’s Animal Welfare Publications booklet offers a complete list of AWI publications. Call or email to request a free copy, or view the booklet online (6MB PDF).
