Technically, the term "animal rights" refers to the belief that animals, like humans, have basic rights. However, in common usage the term is often used more broadly to mean the "humane treatment of animals." This Research Guide will encompass the broader definition. 

For a broad overview of the topic, refer to the titles below.
