What we do to protect animals

What we do

Animals are at the heart of everything we do. Here to stop animals from being persecuted in the name of ‘sport’, we strive to protect them from the horrific acts of hunting (such as fox hunting and cubbing), game shooting, snares, trail huntinggreyhound racing, bullfightinghare coursing, dog fighting, mink hunting, and more.

We know that every action brings us one step closer to ending cruel sports and our passion drives us forward. Together, with our committed supporters, we are working towards bringing about real change for animals across the UK. As a charity we want to redefine what is acceptable and inspire change. We do this by:
