 The Five Freedoms


The 5 Freedoms are a guide which is part of the Animal Welfare Act 2007.

The welfare of an animal includes its physical and mental state. It is considered that good animal welfare maintains health of the animal but also allows for natural behaviour, so making it happier.

Any animal kept by humans, must at least, be protected from unnecessary suffering.

These freedoms give a framework to guide owners. They are designed to safeguard animals within the UK and improve welfare and animal husbandry. 


  • 1. Freedom from Hunger and Thirst - by ready access to fresh water and a diet to maintain full health and vigour.
  • 2. Freedom from Discomfort - by providing an appropriate environment including shelter and a comfortable resting area.
  • 3. Freedom from Pain, Injury or Disease - by prevention or rapid diagnosis and treatment.
  • 4. Freedom to Express Normal Behaviour - by providing sufficient space, proper facilities and company of the animal's own kind.
  • 5. Freedom from Fear and Distress - by ensuring conditions and treatment which avoid mental suffering.
