For years, I have been thinking about writing a series of articles about animal welfare and training issues.  I’ve finally started working on them, so that’s what today’s Thursday Thirteen is all about.

Thirteen Animal Welfare Issues I will write about

1.  Pets as gifts

2.  How to choose an animal trainer

3.  Effects of punishment

4.  Pet overpopulation

5.  Rabbit overpopulation and feral rabbits

6.  Exotic animals

7.  Circuses, rodeos and travelling exhibitions

8.  Farm animal transport and welfare

9.  Wildlife – Predator control

10.  The link between violence against animals and family violence

11.  Pets in rental housing

12.  Animals in research and testing

13.  Animals in recreation/sport/entertainment, film and tv, and fashion/art/clothing.
