The Animal Welfare Enforcement Agency is the UK organisation focusing on investigating and prosecuting commercial animal cruelty. Our team of specialist investigators gather evidence of cruelty to animals at great personal risk.
By using covert tactics, our goal is to assist the enforcement of animal welfare legislation by providing prosecution quality evidence. We focus our resources on investigating the following activities:
- - The illegal trade in puppies and kittens.
- - The breeding, rearing, and slaughter of animals for food production.
- - The use of illegal snares and traps.
We operate our own society lottery and receive all of our funding from players of the Animals Lottery.
