Welcome to Humane Aware

Humane Aware is a not-for-profit organisation that seeks to promote the humane treatment of animals by:

  • providing clear and evidence-based information on a range of animal welfare issues;
  • engaging multiple stakeholders to help translate research into policy and practice;
  • advocating humane behaviour and ethical consumer choice through concrete calls to action;
  • supporting animal rescue centres in the UK and internationally through fundraising and awareness-raising campaigns.

Humane Aware was founded by former academics Dr Robert Lovsin and Dr Catherine Jefferson - read more about their story here.
