Dog welfare campaigns
It's estimated that there are around 10 million dogs in the UK. Many are well treated and much loved by their owners, but not all understand the needs of their beloved pets or the issues that dogs face.
The welfare issues affecting our dogs are wide ranging. From the suffering of many pedigree dogs bred for 'looks' over welfare, to the illegal trade in puppies or dogs simply struggling with being left alone, we are on the front line in dealing with these problems and caring for the animals affected.
As well as tackling these issues on the ground, we campaign for changes in the law, and in public behaviour, that will have a positive impact on dog welfare in England and Wales.
How can I help dogs today?
- Take action to end Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) - legislation that discriminates simply on the way a dog looks.
