BPT advocates science based holistic solutions in all animal welfare initiatives. Given the success in evidence based approaches in dog population management and rabies control to date, BPT advocates broad basing this methodology in influencing public health policy.
Lobbying/Advocacy by BPT attempts to influence decision making in animal welfare related issues made by Government, Private sector, Non-Governmental Organizations, Animal Welfare Groups and the Public. BPT also ensures that interests of animal welfare are fairly defended and aims to influence public policy and resource allocation decisions within political, economic and social systems and institutions. Media campaigns, discussions with focus groups, strategic lobbying of special interest groups and general dissemination of information and other tools of lobbying and advocacy are employed to continuously engage key sectors on current, individual and expansive issues related to animal welfare.
BPT also recommends changes to existing dog and rabies ordinances to update and cater to current times to provide for the more humane treatment of animals and to educate the public at large on underlying issues of animal welfare. BPT takes a moderate stance on revision of current Animal Welfare legislation. Through transparent and collaborative processes BPT initiate, engage and maintain relationships with key stakeholders and decision makers in Public Health and Animal Welfare sectors.
