In three summary points (according to the so loved Cartesian tradition), this piece presents certain aspects of how Catalonia has positioned itself as a society that animal protection, as reflected by the legal initiatives and the positive push of society in recent years. Catalonia, in conjunction with the Spanish state, has always demonstrated a pioneering spirit for placing animals in the position that legally, politically and socially corresponds to them as sentient beings and as recognised by the animal welfare legislation of the European Union. In this sense, the affinity between France and Catalonia, with a shared spirit of respect for animals, must be highlighted and serve as a starting point for closer collaboration.
