Welfare of performing animals

We provide advice and support for those using animals in the entertainment industry. 

Adopting good welfare practices reduces risk and cost to production and protects animals. It also helps animal trainers to stay within the law.

We've produced guidance on using performing animals for organisations to follow. To receive a free copy of our Guidelines for the Welfare of Performing Animals register your organisation's details online.
