Description

Animal welfare education is a multidisciplinary subject which is evolving rapidly with the core components of welfare science, welfare ethics, welfare laws and welfare standards. Animal welfare can be applied to all animal species, sometimes preceded by ‘farm’ or ‘companion’ or other words to denote to which group of animals the term is specifically referring. In general, however, we are concerned about the welfare of all animals that are managed in some way by humans, and where we have particular responsibilities for their care. In the past, greatest concern about animal welfare has been related to livestock production in agriculture, and thus ‘farm animal welfare’ has received the most attention. Over time, welfare issues pertaining to working, performing, companion, zoo and lab animals have also received attention. Keeping all this in view, the PGDAW programme has covered welfare science, ethics, laws and standards of all managed animals like cattle and buffaloes; sheep and goat; pigs; poultry; working, performing, pet, zoo and lab animals.

The Programme is initially being offered through 22 Learner Support Centres spread across the country. However, if applicants do not find a Learner Support Centre in their vicinity/state, they may choose SOEDS: School of Extension and Development Studies as the Learner Support Centre/Study Centre.
