The Animal Welfare Board of India is a statutory advisory body on Animal Welfare Laws and promotes animal welfare in the country. Established in 1962 under Section 4 of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960 (No. 59 of 1960), the AWBI was the first of its kind to be established by any Government in the world and has since then been the face of the animal welfare movement in the country.
