The Five Freedoms

Five Freedoms for all Animals

Freedom from hunger and thirst –provide fresh water and the correct type and amount of food for all animals to ensure they maintain a suitable weight and good health

Freedom from discomfort – provide a suitable environment and shelter. Shelters must be weatherproof and provide shelter from wind, rain, heat and cold.

Freedom from pain, injury and disease- aim to avoid and prevent injury and ill health. If ill health or injury does occur provide suitable and prompt treatment. 

Freedom to behave normally- provide adequate and suitable space and companionship to enable an animal to display normal behavioural traits.

Freedom from fear and distress- handle and care for animals in a manner which does not cause pain, discomfort, anxiety or fear
