Registered Charity No: 1095234 (England & Wales), SC045533 (Scotland).

The League Against Cruel Sports is a registered charity that brings together people who care about animals. Like the majority of the public, we believe that cruelty to animals in the name of sport has no place in modern society. Established in 1924, the League is unique because we focus on cruelty in the name of sport.

Through investigations and lawful campaigning, we encourage the public and law makers to recognise their responsibility to protect animals from suffering in the name of sport. We raise awareness of the issues through the media and enlist public support, changing people’s behaviour, gaining new legislation, and enforcing existing laws that are in place to protect animals in the UK and across the world.

The League receives no government or National Lottery funding, and relies on the generosity of our supporters to help fund our campaigning and investigative work.
