In a digital age, the importance of being accessible via a variety of online venues is essential. Animal Welfare Society is no different than anyone else – we are on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube, and we are exploring other options all the time. With the rebuild of our website in 2018, we are hoping to expand our website's content to include a running journal of events, articles of interest and other relevant features including an archive of our historical past.
