Victory Against Clubbing of Puppies and Kittens in UK Testing Labs!

Uncaged has achieved a crucial victory in our fight against Government plans to allow new-born puppies and kittens to be clubbed to death in UK laboratories.

Last summer, the Government announced that it intended to introduce these brutal methods of killing when implementing a new EU Directive. When Uncaged discovered these plans buried deep in their consultation documents, we immediately raised the alarm, gaining national media attention and helping compassionate people to express their opposition to such extreme violence.

Mercifully, the Government has been forced to perform a U-turn and has just stated that it doesn’t intend introduce these intensely barbaric practices. On behalf of the thousands of puppies, kittens, fox cubs and ferret kits who have been spared, thank you! Without your voice, they would have been entirely helpless.

So we've helped stop one of the most severe dangers to animals posed by the Government. But there are a huge number of other battles to fight around this new law.

One of the reasons for animals' vulnerability is that it's a major challenge for the public to keep track of all the various threats and, hence, be able to speak out against them. That's where Uncaged comes in. We know that compassionate people need knowledge so that they have the power to save animals.

So our Campaigns Director Dr Dan Lyons has just published this expert report on a Parliamentary debate that took place last week about the forthcoming new animal experimentation law. As you'll discover, the real devil facing animals in buried in the detail. We've also updated our main briefing document summarising the threats to animal welfare, scientific standards and demoncratic accountability contained within the Government's approach to implementing the new Directive - you can download it from here.

Please, we urge you - on behalf of the millions of animals who could face appalling cruelty in UK labs for a generation - take a look and these crucial reports and go and see your MP on behalf of those animals. Don't hesitate to contact Dan if you have any questions: dan@uncaged.co.uk .
