The League is a charity that brings together people who want to stop cruelty to animals in the name of sport. Established in 1924, we successfully use lawful investigations, campaigning and lobbying to make a difference in the UK and around the world.
The organisation was started by a group of people who, 90 years ago, wanted to make a difference for animals. The people that make up the League today are still committed to that very purpose. If you are one of those people, then you are already a League supporter. We represent people who want to stop cruel sports for good, and see an end to animal suffering for sport and activities related to it, such as snaring. Recent polling showed that the majority of people do not want a return to legal hunting.
