The League Against Cruel Sports

The League Against Cruel Sports

A voice for animals
The League Against Cruel Sports is Britain’s leading charity working towards a kinder society where persecuting animals for ‘sport’ is in the past.

Redefining what is acceptable and inspiring change, we were instrumental in helping bring about the landmark Hunting Act 2004. Driven by compassion and empowered by knowledge, we manage sanctuaries to protect wildlife, carry out investigations to expose law-breaking and cruelty to animals, and campaign for stronger animal protection laws and penalties. United, we will end animal cruelty in the name of ‘sport’.

Imagine your dog or a dog you know being forced to fight, day after day. Horrendous isn’t it? Sadly, this suffering is a reality for many. Bred for the sole purpose of being mistreated; extensively trained until exhausted; kept in isolation to deny them the freedom to socialise; and stitched back together with glue or a staple gun; dogfighting is one of the most extreme forms of animal abuse.

Although an underground and often hidden ‘sport’, last year we investigated 113 suspected dog fighting reports. The evidence is overwhelming. With your help we can protect man’s best friend.
