As we approach what we expect to be our biggest year yet, we want to take this moment to reflect on another year at Advocates for Animals and all the growth we have seen.
Some highlights from 2022 include:
We won the first private prosecution we have brought regarding cruelty towards dogs. You can find out more here
We were granted permission for two judicial reviews against the government, one to challenge fast growing chickens bred for meat and one challenging cosmetic testing on animals. Permission is achieved in only 5% of cases. You can find out more here and here
We provided legal assistance to help close a huge reptile market with significant animal welfare concerns. You can find out more here
We provided legal advice to almost all of the major animal groups in the UK
We have welcomed new members to our growing team
We welcomed The Animal Law Foundation to the UK animal law family
2022 was our best year yet, but we are determined to make 2023 even better.
To provide a taster for 2023:
We are advising on two prosecutions regarding cruelty on farms
We will be attending the hearings for our two judicial review
We will be working with The Animal Law Foundation to prevent systemic illegality
We will be welcoming new team members. Find out more here
Thank you to all of those who support us, you have made this vision a reality. We couldn't do it without you.
2023 here we come!
