In the run up to the Elections we have teamed up with Lush Cosmetics for their Votes for Animals campaign.

On Thursday 23rd April campaigners wearing our animal masks marched on Parliament marking the launch of the ‘Votes for Animals’ campaign to highlight the importance of animal welfare issues in the General Election. The march was led by among others Brian May and Peter Egan. The aim of the campaign is to help inform the public on where their local candidates stand on the issue of animal welfare and to take this into consideration when voting.

League Against Cruel Sports Chief Executive Joe Duckworth said: “Animal lovers who want a new government that’s committed to animal welfare should know where their local candidates stand on this issue when they cast their vote at the General Election."

“Our ‘Votes for Animals’ campaign and website will help the general public find out more so they can make an informed choice.”

It matters to animals who is in government. When you cast your vote on 7th May, you vote on behalf of all the animals in the UK too - visit www.votesforanimals.co.uk to learn more about the threats to animal welfare in the UK General Election and how you can help to defend their rights from League Against Cruel Sports, Animal Aid and Common Decency.

It is the legislation elected politicians choose to pass that provides animals with protection from harm, abuse and misuse. So although they can’t vote, the actions and attitude of who is in Westminster makes a real difference to animals in the wild, on farms, in laboratories and in our homes.


Get involved

With this campaign we are asking you to consider your vote with animals in mind. We ask you to question your candidates stance on animal protection issues - let them know that these issues are important to you as a voter.

This election is a crunch time for animals because instead of being promised improved protection, they are in danger of losing the protection that previous Parliaments have granted them.

Over the next two weeks, the shop windows of every Lush store around the country will be featuring striking imagery and our masks to remind people to vote (ethically) with animals in mind. So pop into your local Lush store and try on a mask and find out more about the campaign.
