Animal Rescue Workday

Kirkby Pet Welfare is a small animal shelter attempting to tackle the desperate task of rescuing and re-homing unwanted rabbits, hamsters and other small rodents, often bred indiscriminately by the pet trade.

Nottingham Animal Rights seeks volunteers for regular workdays. It is really rewarding work, because we can all do a little to make a big difference. The dogs at Pet Welfare are only walked once or twice a week so this is an easy and fun job that can make a positive impact on their lives. Transport may be available from Beeston or Nottingham - call Lee on 07599 282851.

London Anti-Fur Demos

/img/arc/furfreeharveynichols.jpg There are demos every Saturday at shops selling fur. Regular targets include Harvey Nichols, Harrods and Joseph, as well as international campaign targets Escada and Max Mara.

Animals used to make fur included mink, blue fox, silver fox, musquash, rabbit, beaver, wolf, coyote, chinchilla and squirrel.

12th April: 12 midday - 4pm or later at Harvey Nichols 109 - 125 Knightsbridge, London, SW1X 7RJ. Nearest tube is Knightsbridge (Knightbridge exit).

Following a campaign in 2004, Harvey Nichols introduced an ethical fur free policy. However in September last year the department store chain decided to drop its fur-free policy. It is vitally important to take action on this, if Harvey Nichols continues to sell fur, other department stores and fashion chains are likely to follow. Please come along to support the protest, you can help whether you can spare just an hour or the whole afternoon.

Contact number for protest: 07575 881575. Placards and leaflets and will be available. facebook event details

There are also protests at Harvey Nichols in other cities, for details contact: caft@caft.org.uk

Animal Liberation Gathering

The 2014 event returns to last year's site near Derby/Nottingham, 5mins from junction 26 of the M1. By spending less time organising the venue more energies can go into building a bigger better gathering. Advance notice is given that a location further north may be looked for for next year.

Veggies will be co-ordinating the catering, running a cafe space and holding "mass vegan catering" workshops. To help with the catering or for special dietary needs contact Veggies

To get involved look out for the next planning meeting, or get in touch.

For an idea of what to expect, see the 2012 Gathering Report, website or Facebooks

Brinsley Animal Rescue Open Day

/img/arc/brinsleypigs.jpg Join us raising funds for animal rescue work and the animal hospital at Brinsley Animal Rescue, a not for profit organisation, run by volunteers on vegan values, dedicated to the caring of pets, wild animals and farm animals.

Our primary mission is to relieve the suffering of animals and birds. Many of the animals that come to us are simply ’surplus to requirements’ from the meat, dairy and egg industry. Because such animals are deemed unprofitable then it is our aim to take them on and find them loving homes in which they can enjoy the retirement they deserve.

As well as stalls, talks and games, there is vegan beer, vegan ice cream and food by Veggies so come over, chill out and meet the animals. Find out about regular work days with Nottingham Animal Rights.

Barry Horne Memorial Actions

http://barryhorne.org/images/barryhorne.jpg Let us know if you are organising events at local labs, or elsewhere, to commemorate Barry's death on November 5th 2001, and for the animals.

5th November is the anniversary of the death in prison of fellow activist Barry Horne. Barry died in Long Lartin prison of liver failure, a direct result of three prison hunger strike protests against government policy on animal experiments.

To mark the day, please either organise an event or action dedicated to Barry, or dedicate your planned event or action to Barry's memory.

The event doesn't have to be connected with vivisection, Barry was an all round activist. He was a vegan, a hunt saboteur for many years, was convicted of trying to release a dolphin from an aquarium, attended demos against all forms of animal abuse.

Boxing Day Anti-Hunt Demos

http://hsa.enviroweb.org/images/hsa/gfx/scms04.jpg Animal rights groups oppose the flouting of loopholes in the law that results in hunts continuing to kill. It is for this reason that wildlife protection group, including the hunt saboteurs, need to monitor the situation and to intervene to save lives where necessary. See Boxing Day - the public face of fox hunting.

The Hunt Saboteurs Association is a non-violent direct action organisation which has been dedicated to getting between the hunters and their quarry for over 40 years, and we know better than anyone what illegal hunting looks like – it just seems that no-one else seems to care. Contact your local group via the Hunt Saboteurs Association. Press enquiries please call: 07774 279133

New Year's Day Anti-Hunt Action

/img/arc/huntsabhounds.jpg Hunt saboteurs will, as ever, be preventing hunts from catching and killing animals.

Rather than focus on banner waving demos, saboteurs will blow hunting horns, imitate the huntsman's voice calls and use harmless scent dulling sprays that mask where the fox or hare has run.

World Rat Day

/img/arc/worldratday400.jpg Cavy Rescue, a small animal shelter, invites rat lovers to celebrate World Rat Day in the UK.

All true fans of the pet rat know that these dear, sweet animals deserve greater recognition and admiration, and that their image suffers from ignorance and unthinking prejudice.

World Rat Day can be a day to win back some respect to rats through positive promotion, or at the very least, it will be a special day to offer delicious treats and fun gifts to our pets, making some rats very happy and getting some cute photographs in the process!

To offer a home to a rat (or any other homeless animal) check the Animal Rescue section of Veggies Directory or Cavy Rescue.

World Day for Animals in Laboratories

World Day for Laboratory Animals is a United Nations recognized day of international commemoration of the suffering and killing of millions of innocent sentient beings in laboratories throughout the world.

Campaigning organisations in the UK and across the globe, will mark World Day for Laboratory Animals, a time to reflect upon the pain and suffering caused to millions of animals all in the name of a fraudulent scientific practice - a practice that is not only is so cruel to the animals so horribly abused and killed by vivisectors but a practice that so cruelly gives false hope to those with illness and disease.

This year's World Day Demo is in Nottingham on Saturday 26th April.
