EUROPA - Animal Health & Welfare - Introduction

Cats in Italy's insight:

"The European Commission's activities in this area start with the recognition that animals are sentient beings. The general aim is to ensure that animals need not endure avoidable pain or suffering and obliges the owner/keeper of animals to respect minimum welfare requirements."

And yet regarding stray cats and dogs, there seems to be tons of loop holes in national laws...Apparently in Italy, the law says no strays may be used for experimentation "except when...". The end effect is that cats and dogs  may be found in laboratory experimentation.
