"The animal care and welfare field is evolving to see animal caretakers in all their roles as professionals, especially worldwide as we redefine who is ‘essential’. Building this professionalism through education, compassion, and advocacy is what PAWS does. It’s critical! The world wide platform brings us together in ways most other organisations don’t, or can’t. What AnimalConcepts does is so important!"

Hannah Jenkins
Animal Care Supervisor
Maria's Animal Shelter UK

Being a PAWS member is both inspiring and exciting. Connecting with those that share a positive and passionate approach to animal welfare is incredibly rewarding, and never fails to inspire further learning and action. It is fantastic to be part of an open-minded evidence-based community, that recognises the benefit of working collaboratively and with integrity. For me personally, it is worth every penny!"

Animal caregiver

"I am an animal caregiver working in research. On the PAWS platform, I feel that what I contribute is heard and valued, and that I am part of a group that can make a difference for animals. Everyone is treated equally, and has the opportunity to develop new skills, share experiences and becoming better animal care professionals. I enjoy the membership and hope to meet more professionals also from research field."
