Anyone who has worked in the animal welfare sector for any length of time will recognise how difficult it is to develop lasting solutions that prevent animals from suffering. The reality in the year 2013 is that we are still dealing with needless cases of neglect and abuse in the UK, across Europe, and around the world; so how do we address this issue?
It is no longer enough to take a simplistic view about a situation; this is about veterinary treatment and care, this is about prosecution, this is about education and this is about campaigning for change. The reality in many situations is that the solution may involve elements of all of these approaches and more.
If we are to be truly effective and develop real sustainable solutions, we have to understand the driving causes of the problem. To do this effectively, questions must be asked, information gathered and evidence evaluated, in order to get to grips with why an issue is occurring in the first place; even when the temptation is to rush in and try and make changes. With a joined up approach, proper evaluation and engagement of the communities directly involved in the welfare issue; it is possible to pull together the threads that will weave a lasting solution and one which acceptable to all involved.
