For All Animals
Making Scotland the Best Place in the World for an Animal to Be
Since 1839, we have proudly fought to improve the lives of animals in Scotland.
We have made massive progress throughout our rich history, but pets, wildlife and farmed animals face pressures like never before.
Factors such as the rising cost of living, the exploitation of animals for profit, the climate crisis and habitat loss pose a massive challenge to animals – and to organisations like us to respond to.
That’s why we’ve set out six key ambitions we want to achieve within a decade.
By 2032, Scotland will be the best place in the world for an animal to be.
This is a vision where all animals have a good life.
WHAT WE WANT
Every animal has a good life.
Every person embraces the joy and value animals add to our lives, and recognises they have feelings and needs which should be met.
WHY WE EXIST
To champion animal welfare in Scotland and ensure animals are treated with respect and kindness.
To provide the support and knowledge people need to protect the welfare of the companion, wild and farmed animals in their lives.
WHAT WE DO
We will continue to proudly deliver and improve our services, and we will amplify our work in proactively making life better for animals and people.
Responding to animals in need while being proactive in preventing animals from requiring help.
