Animal Rights and Animal Welfare are not interchangeable

Animal Welfare supports humane treatment and use of animals and believes that humans have a responsibility for their care. Animal Rights (AR) is a radical belief that attempts to elevate animals to equality with humans and calls for an end to all traditional uses of animals, such as use of animals for food or clothing.
