TIR works with like-minded organizations on a regular basis and maintains an intensive exchange of information with authorities, institutions, and specialists. On a national level, we offer, among other things, our expertise to the Association for the Coordination of Cantonal Animal Protection (KKT) Zurich (umbrella organization for all animal welfare organizations of Zurich) and to The Swiss Animal Alliance (AAS).
In a time of growing globalization, worldwide exchange of information has become very important for the further development of animal welfare. For this reason, TIR works closely with various international organizations with the aim of mutually benefiting from experiences, promoting an understanding for national peculiarities, and developing transnational solutions.
TIR is also a member of the German Lawyer's Association for Animal Welfare Law (DJGT), which brings lawyers interested in animal welfare closer together, with the aim of promoting the further development of animal welfare legislation and an effective enforcement of the existing legal regulations. Furthermore, we belong to the European Enforcement Network of Animal Welfare Lawyers and Commissioners and are a part of the EuroGroup for Animal Law Studies (EGALS). TIR also works on implementing international animal welfare projects together with the renowned Center for Animal Law Studies (CALS) at the Lewis & Clark Law School in Portland (Oregon, USA).
