Mission statement

"Tierschutz macht Schule" - the association for animal welfare education aims to improve the living conditions of pets, farm animals, laboratory animals and wild animals within our society. Animals, our fellow creatures, should be kept and treated according to the needs of their specific species. The association acts on a tolerant and respectful basis towards animals and human beings.

Critically evaluating all aspects of animal welfare, avoiding radical attitudes as well as seeking to educate ourselves are fundamental aspects of our work. Therefore "Tierschutz macht Schule" is a platform for people, institutions and organisations that represents a balanced and reputable education of animal welfare, that relies on scientific findings. "Tierschutz macht Schule" is also an important mediator in sharing knowledge of research findings with the general public.
