    It’s the Easter Holidays!

    We have lots of dairy-free delicious vegan Easter eggs and chocolates. Easter weekend falls on 18th – 21st April, so make sure you don’t miss out! Visit our online shop.

    There are lots of fun, animal friendly things that all the family can do during the Easter holidays. Instead of taking a trip to a zoo, aquarium or circus, why not visit a local sanctuary or a circus that only uses humans for entertainment?

    Tell Copenhagen Zoo to Stop Killing Animals!

    Sign the petition to stop Copenhagen Zoo killing more healthy animals.

    Despite international outrage in response to their killing of Marius, a healthy 18 month old giraffe in February 2014, whom they deemed surplus to breeding requirements, media reports today (March 25th 2014) reveal that Copenhagen Zoo has again killed four healthy lions in their care.

    Stop the British Army using live pigs as training targets

    Did you know that the British Army sends medical surgeons to Denmark to operate on pigs that have been deliberately shot, stabbed and mutilated?

    These cruel exercises are not permitted in this country and 23 out of 28 NATO countries use far more effective non-animal methods.

    Please take a few moments to contact Minister of State for the Armed Forces, The Rt Hon Mark Francois MP and ask him to intervene in stopping these barbaric training methods.

    Things to mention:
    • Directive 2010/63/EU states that animals must not be used when non-animal
      options are available.
    • Lifelike human simulators that "breathe" and "bleed" in realistic battlefield scenarios have been shown by military and civilian studies to prepare doctors and medics to treat injured humans more effectively than animal laboratories.
    • 23 out of 28 NATO countries use far more effective non-animal methods.

    Sign the petition to the European Commission calling on them to enforce the directive requiring that non-animal methods be used to train the military.
