Our achievements for animal welfare
A balanced animal welfare education is the best foundation for propagating lifelong good practice in caring for animals and therefore contributes to their wellbeing. The strong demand for a solid animal welfare education is evidenced by the increasing popularity of our materials.
A study completed in 2017 entitled "Success factors of the animal welfare association 'Tierschutz macht Schule'" highlights the association's work and structure in order to serve as a source of inspiration for similar international initiatives and European legislation.
Education of children and young people
Our greatest achievements are our results in educating children and young people.
Since 2007 we have distributed over 798.800 copies of our teaching materials.
About 3,000 schools and educational institutions throughout Austria have ordered our products since our foundation in 2006.
More than 10.800 students have taken part in our hands-on Pet Buddy workshops and our expert-led animal welfare classes.
In adult education, "Tierschutz macht Schule" primarily targets influencers. However, the increased number of brochure orders and participants in events such as further education courses and trade fairs bears witness to a growing interest in a balanced and professional animal welfare education in the adult population:
- Since our association was established, more than 56,000 adults have ordered our brochures, in particular those encouraging good practices in cat and dog care.
Around 5,000 people have proactively ordered our materials.
Numerous educators and adults have participated in different workshops organised by our association.
Our website had 40.594 users during 2018.
In 2018 alone we reached out to 2,200 people through our newsletter.
Through our presence at events and trade fairs we were able to approach numerous individuals and inform them about our workings.
