Three veterinary surgeons working in practice, business, academia and education have been appointed to the board of trustees of the Animal Welfare Foundation.
Farm animal vet and Origin Group founder Matt Dobbs, animal welfare scientist and ethologist Michael Appleby, and The Webinar Vet programme manager Stacey Blease have joined 11 other trustees on the AWF board. They bring with them extensive knowledge and a range of skills spanning small and large animal veterinary practice, dairy herd health, law, knowledge transfer, research and business management.
AWF is a vet-led charity that funds research, supports veterinary education, provides pet care advice and encourages debate on animal welfare issues. Its trustees are responsible for facilitating the achievement of AWF’s mission, providing strategic direction, ensuring its financial stability and compliance with legal and charitable regulations, and safeguarding the charity’s brand and reputation. The charity is supported by the British Veterinary Association, the leading representative body for vets in the UK.
