Animal cruelty offenders
Together we did it!
After years of campaigning, thousands of emails and hundreds of animals failed by our sentencing system, we're delighted that the UK Government have announced they will introduce longer prison sentences for animal abusers in England.
The announcement to increase the maximum prison sentence from six months to five years in England sends a strong message, that animal abuse will not be tolerated. Causing harm to an animal is an offence that will be taken seriously by the courts.
Thank you to each and every one of you for supporting the campaign and standing up for animals.
Make sure Wales isn’t left behind
It’s been revealed that the UK Government's recent announcement, regarding increased sentencing, will only apply to England.
If you live in Wales we need you to urge the Welsh Government to increase sentences too.
Call for an offender's register in Wales
In addition to tougher sentences for animal abusers, we believe there should be an animal welfare offender register. This is to ensure those banned from keeping pets can't break the law further.
There is an opportunity in Wales to bring this about, please sign the petition.
We won but we still need you!
