About Us

The Animal Welfare Advocacy Group (AWAG) brings together Non-governmental Organisations (NGOs), Government of Jamaica (GOJ) entities, the Private Sector, Charitable Organisations, and individual animal welfare advocates, to provide a framework for all interested groups and individuals to play a role according to their area of expertise and level of commitment in promoting the humane treatment of animals.

AWAG will maintain partnerships with governmental and civil society groups which share similar concerns for the welfare of animals in Jamaica including groups and individuals outside of our jurisdiction.
