To add interest throughout the website I have interspersed commentary with thought provoking quotations from philosophers, ethicists, scientists and other notable thinkers both past and present. For ease of reading all quotations appear in a purple font

Please note: External links will open into a new window.

This section of the website will focus on various issues concerning animal rights and will eventually include  articles on such subjects as animal experimentation, animal labour and other issues concerning animal rights in addition to specific issues. Factory farming has its own section  Animal Rights: Factory Farming

This is a new section which will be revised and updated  

Animal rights issues will be added in due course including information concerning animal experiments, hunting and other abuses.

If you have written an article, or an essay on any relevant issue concerning animal rights I would be pleased to consider it for inclusion. 

The following also appear in the articles section of this website.

In the main this website supports the stance on Animal rights as expressed by but not limited to:


The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Foundation is a UK-based charity dedicated to establishing and protecting the rights of all animals.

Like humans, animals are capable of suffering and have interests in leading their own lives; therefore, they are not ours to use – for food, clothing, entertainment, experimentation or any other reason. PETA and our affiliates around the world educate policymakers and the public about cruelty to animals and promote an understanding of the right of all animals to be treated with respect

The Abolitionist Approach

Mission Statement
The mission of this website is to provide a clear statement of an approach to animal rights that (1) requires the abolition of animal exploitation and rejects the regulation of animal exploitation; (2) is based only on animal sentience and no other cognitive characteristic, (3) regards veganism as the moral baseline of the animal rights position; and (4) rejects all violence and promotes activism in the form of creative, non-violent vegan education


Animal Equality

Animal Equality is an international non-profit organisation dedicated to achieving equal consideration and respect for animals. Founded in Madrid, Spain in January 2006 we are currently active in Spain, the United Kingdom, Italy, Peru, Venezuela and Colombia.


VIVA Vegetarians International Voice for Animals

What does Viva! Do?
Viva! campaigns for a vegetarian/vegan world because most farmed animals spend their short and miserable lives in the filth of factory farms and are killed with sickening barbarity – see here We expose this abuse by secretly going inside these shameful places and filming the suffering – publicising it with nationwide campaigns that bring about change. Billions of animals are also killed at sea causing immense suffering and the ecological collapse of the oceans

League Against Cruel Sports - Home - End cruelty to animals in sport

We work to expose and bring to an end the cruelty inflicted on animals in the name of 'sport'

Uncaged Campaigns Against animal testing and experiments

We are a peaceful international animal protection organisation based in Sheffield, England. Our main campaigns are against animal experiments (vivisection); against xenotransplantation (animal to human transplants); the global boycott of Procter & Gamble; for animal rights and for democratic action on animal issues through the political system.


1) Animals Are Not Ours to Wear The Issues PETA.org.uk

2) If animal farming were to stop and we were to use the land to grow grain to feed ourselves, we could feed every single person on this planet. Consuming crops directly - rather than feeding them to animals and then eating animals - is a far more efficient way to feed the world. This Viva! Guide looks at why eating meat is a major cause of world hunger and how vegetarianism can provide a solution.
