Important Distinctions Between Animal Rights and Animal Welfare

I keep meaning to post this. This wonderful graphic makes important distinctions between the Animal Rights and Animal Welfare movements. Even though there is a fair amount of overlap between the two movements, their ultimate goals are dramatically different. Of course, this blogger falls into the Animal Rights camp. Until we recognize that animals are their own beings, with their own lives, and we have no right to use them for our own ends, there can be no real peace in the world.


  1. Nice one. Those who work for animal "welfare" usually don't care about the welfare of the animals. They do it so that the humans can benefit more from them. Animal welfare is like opening a hospital for the Negro slaves so that they can serve their masters better.

  2. Great post . It takes me almost half an hour to read the whole post. Definitely this one of the informative and useful post to me. Thanks for the share and plz visit my site animal welfare The mission of NAIA is to promote the welfare of animals.
