Animal laws are a crucial
and integral part
our bid to conserve and protect our environment which also encompasses our dearly loved beings called animals.

There is no doubt that there are a number of legislative provisions that provide for the protection of animals in our country and even worldwide. However these provisions are not comprehensive enough, particularly on the advancement of animal welfare and rights. In order to protect our animals from extinction, we need concise and precise animal legislative provisions.

Raising awareness of these laws and lobbying for the advancement of animal rights is part of what we do here at SOFA. Join us as we embark on this journey to protect animals and to leave an indelible mark worldwide.
