Stop the Mountain Hare Slaughter

Help us stop the persecution of Scotland’s only native hare.

Ban Electric Shock Collars

Scotland could be on the brink of banning shock collars. Lets make it happen!

Support our 2016 campaigns

From electric shock collars to hunting with dogs, we need your support to end these cruel practices
