We couldn't make progress for animals without the help of compassionate people who campaign in their spare time. Here are some easy actions you can take to help our current campaigns to succeed.
1. Order a FREE ‘Go Vegan’ pack
Going vegan is the single biggest step you can take to help animals. Our FREE Go Vegan packs contain friendly advice on everything from nutrition to recipes. Already vegan? Why not order some of our leaflets to distribute, encouraging others to go animal-free too?
Order your FREE pack today!
2. Pledge to have a cruelty-free Christmas
This year we are running Their Christmas Wish. The campaign refers to the lucky turkeys who get to live out their lives free from harm in rescue centres. We are aiming to ensure that as many people as possible have a cruelty-free Christmas dinner, to spare turkeys just like them from suffering and death.
Take a look at a film about Silver, which shows just how amazing turkeys are!Sign up for a compassionate Christmas
3. Ask the Welsh Government for compulsory CCTV in slaughterhouses
CCTV has been compulsory for slaughterhouses in England since late 2018, and the Scottish government also plans to introduce this measure. The Welsh Government has not yet taken this vital step. In spring and summer 2019, Animal Aid filmed inside a Welsh slaughterhouse, and we were shocked at the brutality and incompetence we uncovered.
While slaughter can never be cruelty-free, independently monitored CCTV would help to protect vulnerable animals from gratuitous suffering.
Write to the Welsh Government now!
4. Help stop pregnant mares from being raced
We want to bring an end to the racing of pregnant mares, following the awful death of Beyondtemptation, who was forced to race for a third time in just 17 days whilst pregnant. She and her unborn foal were killed in a horrific fall when racing on a British racecourse. Please share this petition on social media and ask all your friends to sign and share. Thank you.

5. Speak out for grey squirrels
Grey squirrels are classified as a ‘non-native’ animal, so people who want to rescue and release them must have a licence. From 1 December, these licences will be scrapped, and it will effectively become illegal to rescue and release these gentle animals. Please take a moment to write to the relevant government Minister and ask them to put a stop to these heartless plans.
Take action now!
6. Help save wildlife from being killed
Are wild animals in danger near you? If you know about a business, local authority, school or workplace that is culling wild animals, please let us know so we can try to prevent this. We can contact the organisation with comprehensive advice on deterring wild animals humanely, and arrange to meet with them. You can use our reporting form, where you can remain anonymous if you prefer.
If you’re having problems with your own unwanted wildlife visitors, please view our humane deterrence sheets for advice.
Report a cull
7. Ask Kellogg’s to Make it Vegan!
Despite having a good range of vegan cereals, most Kellogg’s cereals contain an animal-derived version of vitamin D. Please join us in urging Kellogg’s UK to switch to a plant-based vitamin D in their cereals, which would make many of then suitable for vegans.
