- One of AVA's key responsibilities is to safeguard animal welfare. AVA does this through enforcement of animal welfare regulations and public education on responsible pet ownership (RPO).
Raising awareness on animal welfare and responsible pet ownership is part of developing a humane and gracious society for all. It can lead to increased empathy towards other living things, a reduction in the number of abandoned pets, and people and pets co-existing in greater harmony.
