This petition was submitted during the 2017–2019 Conservative government
Petition Implement an Animal Bill of Rights. A law that protects all species of animals.
It is currently legal to use, abuse, test on, eat, wear and murder animals. All animals deserve the basic rights to their lives and to not be objectified. We are not asking for better conditions, but instead a law giving back rights to non-human animals that have been stolen from them.
We are asking for an animal bill of rights which is:
The right to be free - not owned - or to have a guardian acting in their best interest;
The right to not be exploited, abused, or killed by humans;
The right to have their interests represented in court and protected by the law;
The right to a protected home, habitat, or ecosystem; and
The right to be rescued from situations of distress and exploitation.
