The Humane Slaughter Association works to improve the welfare of food animals during transport, marketing, slaughter, and killing for disease control and welfare reasons. It works through research, education, training and technical advances to improve standards and bring practical and lasting improvements to the welfare of food animals around the world.
The HSA has gained an international reputation for being a knowledgeable and practical organisation, with a sound understanding of livestock and livestock handling. The HSA is respected for its focus on science-based solutions and the support it has given to scientific and technical development in its field.
Over the last 100 years, the HSA’s work has resulted in many significant improvements for food animals around the world and many of the reforms it has promoted are now taken for granted. Significant improvements continue to be achieved through working constructively alongside agricultural, meat industry, veterinary and other welfare and professional organisations.
The HSA relies on voluntary donations, subscriptions and legacies. With your support it will continue to make practical and lasting improvements to the welfare of all food animals.
The HSA shares a university link scheme with the Universities Federation for Animal Welfare (UFAW). The aim of the links scheme is to promote animal welfare science while providing a forum for the involvement of members and supporters.
Students at universities in the links scheme are eligible to apply for the HSA Dorothy Sidley Memorial Scholarships.
