Social Responsibility and Animal Welfare - Veterinarian Seminar


ARCA Brasil

Targeting professionals and students of the Veterinarian field, the seminar brought local and international lecturers to cover how social oriented initiatives can also mean opportunity and promote a professional career. Successful initiatives in Brazil and abroad, that moved society's level of awareness on pet population control and responsible ownership, were also presented.

The pet overpopulation is ever present in both small and large cities of a developing country. It reveals itself daily to veterinarians as puppies in cardboard boxes, run-over and wounded animals, zoonosis and several other instances of cruelty which wear the professional out, creating a feeling of powerlessness.

In the past seven years, conferences, symposiums and other events organized by ARCA Brasil marked the beginning of a new attitude toward animals in Brazil, especially regarding pet population control. Now is the moment to approach this change under the perspective of one of the most important agent in the human-animal relationship: the veterinarian.

ARCA Brasil's Veterinarian Seminar - Social Responsibility and Animal Welfare targets professionals and students of the Veterinarian field. The seminar will bring local and international lecturers to cover how social oriented initiatives can also mean opportunity and promote a professional career. Successful initiatives in Brazil and abroad, that moved society's level of awareness on pet population control and responsible ownership, will also be presented.

Why an event for veterinarians?

After the 3rd Animal Welfare Congress, the need for an event targeted at veterinarians became evident. They are, after all, the fundamental link between companion animals, their owners, and society - they'll be part, for example, of the solution for the issue of abandoned animals.
The ARCA Brasil Seminar is a must-go for veterinarians who are aware of their social role and want to effectively interact with new opportunities related to animal care and control.
