One Voice for Animals UK
Who We Are
We are an organisation committed to animal welfare in the UK.
We believe animals should be treated with compassion, respect and kindness.
One Voice for Animals UK was founded in April 2020 to bring together smaller Animal Welfare Establishments (AWEs) under one umbrella organisation to:
Create greater awareness of the important work they do
To provide practical support to those organisations
To create a directory for the public to find their local Animal welfare centres.
An Animal Welfare Establishment (AWE) is defined as:
A person, organisation or establishment who holds themselves out to receive vulnerable animals on a regular basis, whether companion, farmed, wild, protected or other animals, with a view to rehabilitating and either, re-homing or releasing (back to the wild), or providing long term care.
A future where every animal that needs Rescue, Rehabilitation or Rehoming, gets that chance
To support UK Animal Welfare Establishments (AWEs) by providing tools, resources, advocacy and fundraising opportunities they need to continue to care for vulnerable animals.
Creation & ongoing maintenance of a Directory of animal organisations that provides a platform for the public to find and help AWEs near them.
Influence UK Animal Welfare issues on behalf of our members through being an Associate Member of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Animal Welfare (APGAW)
How you can help
Post Covid, the organisations on our directory are facing new challenges. They are dealing with increased wildlife casualties, now they are also dealing with an increase in abandoned animals as people return to the office. Re-homing centres are finding their animals are coming in with more behavioural issues which makes them harder to re-home. Adoptions and fundraising events are still badly impacted, whilst services, vet bills, equipment and supplies have increased in price. Most Animal welfare establishments do not qualify for Government support and many are in danger of permanent closure.
Please find your local rescue centres on our Directory and donate whatever you can afford.
One Voice for Animals UK is self funded and run by volunteers.
