Humane Society, Health Service Agree on Welfare

24 October 2012

COSTA RICA - Humane Society International (HSI) Latin America and the Servicio Nacional de Salud Animal (SENASA), the Costa Rican animal health service, have signed a joint agreement to work for improved animal welfare standards.

Following the official signing, HSI and SENASA held their first joint training session with personnel from SENASA and law enforcement receiving training to deal with cockfighting and dogfighting, including investigating and breaking up animal fighting operations.

Animal welfare is a global issue, and one of increasing relevance in developing countries, where governmental institutions and NGO’s are key players. It is because of this that SENASA is entering this partnership with HSI, an international organization with over 50 years of experience in the field of animal welfare. This collaboration can become the cornerstone of a new era of improved animal health, welfare and public veterinary health.
