The EU Dog & Cat Alliance was created in 2014. Our members are organisations from across the EU which are working to protect dog and cat welfare. Together we are calling for EU action to build a better Europe for dogs and cats.

We aim to:

  • Lobby the European Union to introduce and improve EU legislation in relation to dogs and cats, and engage in other EU activities.
  • Engage with other key EU stakeholders and collaborate wherever possible to improve the welfare of dogs and cats in the EU
  • Provide a forum for the sharing of information on dog and cat welfare issues between our members
  • Gather evidence on the dog and cat issues we work on and produce reports and briefings to support our position

The EU Dog & Cat Alliance works on issues which are of priority to dogs and cats in the EU. Watch our video explaining our key asks.
