Our Donors and Partners

In 1997 eleven organizations – the BC SPCA, BC Veterinary Medical Association and its members, Dairy Farmers of Canada, BC Dairy Foundation, Western Canada’s Genetics Centre (Westgen), Beef Cattle Industry Development Fund, BC Egg Producers Association, BC Broiler Egg Hatching Commission, Horse Council of BC, Animal Nutrition Association of Canada-BC Division, BC Salmon Farmers Association – pledged cooperation and assistance which enabled the Program to obtain matching funding from Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), and to establish itself as a powerful player in animal welfare.

The success of our Program’s research, teaching and outreach, and the support of a growing number industry partners, has allowed the Animal Welfare Program to obtain continued NSERC funding for two further five-year terms, 2002 – 2007 and 2008 – 2013.
