The Center for Animals and Public Policy offers a venue for balanced, informed and respectful discussion of the difficult issues in animal ethics, policy and practice that face the veterinary profession and society. The Center sponsors conferences, workshops, and symposia covering topics ranging from the welfare of elephants in captivity to feral cat management to human relationships with horses.
The Center’s flagship speaker series is “Animal Matters.” Presented by distinguished scientists, animal professionals, ethicists, advocates, and others, these lunchtime talks expose the Cummings community and the public to a broad sampling of the issues in which society is currently grappling with changing relationships between people and animals.
