Animal cruelty is a horrific crime which happens far too often across the UK. Recent figures released from the RSPCA have shown that Country Durham in particular is Alfie's Lawsomewhat of a hot spot for animal crimes against animals. This is a shocking statistic which really shines a negative light across our county as a whole. Since its inception, the Alfie’s Law group has been trying to raise awareness of some of the horrific atrocities which are committed against animals whilst campaigning for fairer and tougher sentencing of people guilty of animal crimes.

Alfie’s Law has been going from strength to strength in recent times and as of the 1st of May have became the Alfie’s Law Foundation as a charity designed to help all pets in need across the county. The foundation of the charity’s rise can be attributed to their tireless work to try and help stop animal abuse once and for all. Their work has been noticed as their new website has won 2 awards since the charity launched at the start of May.

As animal owners we have a responsibility to look after and care for our pets in the best way possible. It’s shocking to think that household pets can be abused in such savage ways by their owners. No animal deserves to be a victim of cruelty and the Alfie’s Law Foundation are trying to put an end to animal cruelty. If you would like to show your support for the Alfie’s Law Foundation why not head over to their website at to find out more about the campaign.
