World Animal Day at Bayer Animal Health
Join us on a journey around the globe to learn more about how we are passionately caring for animals
Bayer’s mission is “Science For A Better Life”, and from our point-of-view it means ensuring that animals stay healthy, recover from diseases and live without parasites. We passionately care for animals and thus also create a better life for us – the people – sharing this planet with them.
And on World Animal Day, we are proud to show our passion for animals by highlighting some the projects and support organizations that we engage with around the globe:
In the United States , Bayer HealthCare Animal Health is proud to support K9s for Warriors.
K9s for Warriors gives shelter dogs and former rescue dogs a new, happy life. They train these dogs and pair them with war veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and/or traumatic brain injury (TBI) to help ease their transition back into civilian life.
In Latin America, our colleagues partnered with the Cambridge Institute in Animal Welfare and received a five-month training program. They were able to use what they learned to help the farmers in their countries and to explain the principle of animal welfare to farmers and their staff. The message they shared with farmers was simple – “Animal welfare and animal health work together. One cannot exist without the other. And also what is good for the animal is good for the business.” Here is the full article, Animal Health and Animal Welfare.
Also in Latin America, since 2007 our colleagues have been responsible for driving an education program in public and private schools following the motto, “Together we can change the world”. This program focuses on strengthening human appreciation for animals. The goal was to change behavior so that people would see animals differently, and instead of treating them badly, they would view them with respect and appreciation.

In Europe, our colleagues regularly display their solidarity and commitment to animals through annual volunteer work. Most recently, our team in Spain spent an entire afternoon restoring the animal shelter facility: “Rodamón”, in Palafrugell (Gerona, North-East of Spain). They had a lot of fun: Volunteering with Animal Shelter “Rodamón”
In South Africa, Bayer is proud to sponsor tick and flea protection to the working dogs at the Kruger National Park that are working to help save rhinos.At SANParks reserves we’re proud that we can help keep the dogs and their handlers healthy and free of parasites, which is critical in the

Also in Asia, our Bayer colleagues in Thailand, support a foundation that runs an elephant rehabilitation center with de-worming solutions and monetary support. As a thank you, one talented elephant painted the Bayer Logo.
