Abstract :

Animal welfare is a reflection of society's compassion and empathy. In Pakistan, animal welfare has become a prominent topic due to cultural and religious teachings, social media, and the connection between animal welfare and public health and societal well-being. However, there are challenges in implementing and enforcing animal welfare laws. Welfare organizations are doing their best to rescue and rehabilitate animals, provide veterinary care, and raise awareness. However, they cannot address the widespread animal suffering alone. Education is a key to transforming societal attitudes towards animals. Animal welfare should be included in school curricula and continuous learning for adults. Individuals can also contribute by being responsible pet owners, supporting animal shelters, spreading awareness, and advocating for stronger animal protection laws. By recognizing the intrinsic value of all living beings, Pakistan can pave the way for a more compassionate and humane future. Keywords; Welfare, empathy, public health, care, awareness shelters, protection, humane future
