59: The Five Freedoms of Animal Welfare (Part 2)
Colleen Pelar and Julie Fudge Smith continue the discussion of the Five Freedoms of “internationally accepted standards of care that assert a living being’s right to humane treatment.” In this episode they concentrate on freedom to express normal behavior and freedom from fear and distress, and how providing this standard of care is good for you as well as for your pet.
