Through our involvement with the Canine Feline Sector Group, ADUK is part of a coalition of 50 animal welfare charities that this week released a report called “Act Now For Animals”
In anticipation of a series of legislative and policy ambitions from DEFRA in the new Parliamentary session, the No Animal Left Behind report represents the collective ideas and priorities of the animal welfare sector in the areas where legislation is contemplated.
It deals with devolved issues such as animal welfare and reserved issues such as trade. A number of the recommendations are relevant across the devolved administrations. It will, we hope, assist the UK Government in developing a more cohesive animal welfare strategy.
The report has 40 recommendations covering companion animals, wildlife and farm animals.
