ABOUT

New Leaf Animal Society was founded in 2019 by two MSc Human-Animal Interaction Graduates from The University of Stirling. Founded with a core purpose to be pioneers in building and delivering Research, Education, Fostering and Adoption programmes within the Human Behaviour Change, Animal Welfare and Adoption Sectors. 

New Leaf Animal Societies vision is to positively change attitudes towards animals. We will contribute towards this Human Behaviour Change by refining the Animal Welfare and Adoption sector. By making research accessible to the public through our platforms and by raising awareness we want to reach both the most vulnerable animals and humans in society. 

 

We want our work and ethos to contribute towards a symbiotic society where the Human-Animal relationship is equally defined by respect, understanding, knowledge and love. Giving our supporters, volunteers and new pet parents the skills to impact and change the future of animal welfare and adoption.

 

In the end our work will reduce the number of relinquished and stray animals. 

 

Our Mission through our Four Pillars:

 

RESEARCH

  • Be leaders in Human-Animal Interaction and welfare research through collaboration with leading universities and other relevant organisations.

  • Provide research opportunities which will impact and contribute towards achieving New Leaf Animal Society Charitable Objectives. 

  • As the Society grows our own research will be published and shared.

 

EDUCATION

  • We keep up to date with new and relevant research within the Animal Welfare, HBC and HAI sectors. Sharing these insights on our platforms to raise awareness and increase engagement.

  • Utilising the expertise of the New Leaf Animal Society and our Partners to teach new owners about their adopted pet, through the New Leaf Animal Society Adoption programme. 

  • Work placements for students and animal welfare professionals are available within our education, fostering and adoption programmes. 

 

FOSTERING 

  • Invest in building a strong community of compassionate fosters who share in our vision and values.

  • Our research will identify where the need for temporary animal careers are needed.

  • Our fosterers will be trained by the New Leaf Animal Society and respective partners. 

 

ADOPTION

  • Match each individual animal to a potential new owner based on what both the animal and human needs are. 

  • The new owner will complete the adoption programme working closely with a member of the New Leaf Animal Society team. 

  • The adopter and their animal will then become a New Leaf Animal Society Alumni whereby support and services are available anytime.
