Animal Concern Ltd is a Registered Scottish Charity (No. SC050422) and a registered non–profit making Limited Company (Co. No. SC109126).
Established in 1988 as Animal Concern (Scotland) Ltd., it incorporates the Scottish Anti–Vivisection Society which was founded in 1876.
We can trace our campaign history back to 1876. For more on what we have been doing over the last few years see our History section.
Although we have been campaigning successfully for over 145 years we are a small group and very much rely on public support to continue our important work. If you would like to join or assist us with a donation please visit the Support Us section and select the appropriate options.
Our main objective is to persuade politicians and decision makers to introduce laws and policies which free animals from exploitation. Become a member of Animal Concern and, simply by lobbying your politicians and raising animal issues with producers and retailers, you too can help Legislate to Liberate creatures which cannot speak for themselves.
In July 2000 Animal Concern transferred part of its work to the Animal Concern Advice Line (ACAL). Granted charity recognition in February 2001 ACAL now undertakes the advice and support service previously provided by Animal Concern. You can find out more about that on our ACAL sister site, adviceaboutanimals.info
