Abstract

Just as what comprises acceptable welfare in any people involved in human-animal interactions (HAI) represents an amalgam of multiple components that related to multiple disciplines, what comprises the welfare of the animals involved in these same interactions is similarly complex. Although researchers and others routinely address more than one component in their publications, this brief will focus on 5 topics of particular concern:
• The animal’s physical welfare
• The animal’s mental welfare
• Domestication and its effect on the animal’s capacity to handle stress
• Ethical concerns
• Recommendations, guidelines, and laws
This material also will focus on material relevant to the welfare of domestic animals used in HAI.
