The Global Animal Welfare Award 2021 aims to recognise people and institutions for their dedication and outstanding work, going “above and beyond” to protect and safeguard the welfare of animals and promote the animal welfare concept and approach in their daily lives.

Dr. Tickel is a veterinarian at the Institute for Infectious Animal Diseases, IIAD, a part of the Texas A&M University System, and Texas A&M AgriLife Research. He joined IIAD in 2018 as an animal emergency management subject matter resource with expertise in issues related to disease and disaster mitigation, prevention and response on national and international levels.

“Dr. Tickel has been instrumental as a veterinary leader in animal disasters and emergency management throughout his career, caring for both livestock and small animal emergencies,” said Heather Simmons, DVM, director of the Institute for Infectious Animal Diseases.
