Animal welfare


It is important to monitor and investigate the treatment of animal health and welfare.

  • If you are concerned about the way farm animals are being transported or treated at a livestock market, contact trading standards.
  • If you see an animal on a farm in danger, distress, ill or injured, contact the RSPCA.
