The summer issue of the AWI Quarterly is in the mail! Much of this issue is devoted to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on animal welfare. We discuss the challenges faced by animal shelters during this difficult time and how people can help by fostering or adopting shelter animals. We examine how global society’s handling of wildlife and farm animals has greatly increased the risk of pandemics, and what we can do to lessen this risk while also treating animals better.
A number of you normally receive the magazine at a place of business that, due to the pandemic, you may not be visiting for work at this time. Others get the magazine at home but may wish to limit physical mail for now. If so, AWI offers two easy options to ensure that you continue to receive the Quarterly on a timely basis:
