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’.
This is a six month, fixed-term position.
