Animal Care & Welfare

Rodeo All-Star supports animal welfare principles which seek to improve the treatment and well-being of animals. Supporting animal welfare means believing humans have the right to use animals. Along with that right comes the responsibility to provide proper, humane care and treatment. Every animal participating in the activities of Rodeo All-Star shall at all times be provided proper care and management. The care, custody and control of the animals brought to Rodeo All-Star is the responsibility of the exhibitor. To ensure this policy, the Animal Care and Use Committee by way of the attending RAS Veterinarians, on site Animal Ethics Committee members and RAS Superintendents shall monitor any animal Health and Welfare issues of concern on the grounds of the Rodeo All-Star during the show, with emphasis on proper care and treatment.
