Situation

Animals are held captive in institutions all around the world. Many are kept in conditions that will never meet their needs and they suffer both mentally and physically. In the UK and Ireland, people assume animals are protected and well cared for. Sadly this is often not the case and much abuse goes on behind closed doors in circuses, zoos, aquariums, the TV industry and the exotic pet trade.

Solution

Going undercover to document animal abuse is the best way of uncovering what life is really like for the animals. Our findings will be used to expose abuse, end cruel practices, spread awareness and to campaign for positive change for the animals.

  • CAPS is one of the most effective animal groups in the country. Its campaigns are well researched and there is a scientific base for its actions.

  • I support the work of CAPS because the Society has always worked hard and consistently for results that matter directly to the animals involved.
