A history of standing on the side of animals
Standing on the side of animals, our aim is to make cruel sports a thing of the past. United we can end hunting, shooting and animal fighting.
Driven by compassion and empowered by knowledge, we protect animals on our sanctuaries, carry out investigations to expose law-breaking and cruelty to animals, and campaign for stronger animal protection laws.
Our sanctuaries provide animals with a haven, one free of hunting and shooting. Home to array of animals, we provide protection through ‘sporting rights’, as well as providing an environment where wildlife can thrive.
Our team of professional Investigators work continuously to ensure that we have effective and enforced animal protection laws; gathering vital surveillance needed to bring those responsible to justice. Our confidential supporter-funded Animal Crimewatch service allows the public to confidentially report cruelty to animals in the name of ‘sport’.
We continue to educate the public and policy makers through high profile work in the media and expert behind-the-scenes lobbying in Parliament. We also protect animals through our campaigning; uniting voices to achieve change and strengthen laws.
