England: 71% of People Think Causing Pain and Suffering to Animals is Wrong, Animal Aid Poll Shows.

Posted on the 4th April 2022

A recent ‘One Poll’, commissioned by Animal Aid, has shown that the majority of people believe that it is always wrong to cause animals pain and suffering.

The poll asked the question, “Is it ever acceptable to cause pain and suffering to animals?”, to which 71% of people answered “no”. The results show, as Animal Aid suspected, that most people ‘want to be kind’ but are seemingly unaware that there are many things we do on a daily basis that cause animals pain and suffering – for the food we eat, for entertainment, in the wild, and in laboratories.

Most people wouldn’t dream of harming animals, but our daily actions can cause animals huge amounts of pain and suffering – from the food we eat, the entertainment we choose to attend, and from the products we buy and use.

What can you do ?

In the second episode of our brand-new podcast, Conversations on Compassion, our hosts interview XCellR8 co-founder, Dr Carol Treasure about her journey into living with compassion. We learn everything from what inspired Carol on her journey, to the ethical implications of some scientific language – and if there’s such thing as an average day in the lab! Take a listen now

On Sunday 24th April it’s World Day for Animals in Laboratories and we’ll also be sharing some facts about some of the animals who currently suffer in laboratories – so keep an eye on our social media!

It has been hard to ignore the Cheltenham festival, which this year claimed the lives of four horses. Ahead of the Grand National, we’re asking people to support horses by not betting.

If you’re out and about in London, see if you can spot our adverts on London buses, a reminder that horse racing is a dead sport. We’d love to see your pictures, so do share these with us on social media – and be sure to tag us so we can see them!

This week, we’ll visit London, Bristol and Liverpool (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday respectively) with our ‘ad-vans’. These will host mobile screenings of our brand-new film “71%”, narrated by the fantastic Benjamin Zephaniah – poet, author, musician and legend. You can watch the full film here!

OMG, the moral outrage!!!

When these Londoners were asked to try a new milk, they were more than happy to offer praise for the creamy drink, but when a disturbing “fact” about the milk was revealed, everything changed. People were disgusted when they were told that the drink (which was actually soya milk) came from a dog. But if the thought of drinking dogs’ milk makes you feel ill, why drink the milk from any other animal?

After all, there is nothing “normal” about artificially inseminating a cow and forcing her to give birth, only to tear her beloved calf away from her so that the milk that nature intended for her baby can be consumed by humans instead. Humans are the only species on the planet to drink another animal’s milk, and cows’ milk is no more natural for us than dogs’ or rats’ milk would be.


So, if you “accidentally” drank dog’s milk, or cat’s milk, would you be angry? Pissed off? Morally outraged? You’re not the victim who’s forcibly impregnated, separated from her infants, and then violently killed.


Did you know there are actual industry video shorts on how to “safely” steal a calf from her mother, to protect the kidnapper from an angry and fearful mother trying to SAVE HER CHILD? Yeah, it’s all about how violent cows can be and how the farmer is just the innocent bystander risking bodily injury to nobly take an infant SO HUMANS CAN DRINK THE CALVES’ NATURALLY-INTENDED MILK INSTEAD.

What would YOU do if someone tried to take your child?

But what if, say, dogs were farmed for their flesh and for their breastmilk? Would that be ok? I mean, people say ALL THE TIME how much they love animals, but eat them, and farmers always say they care for the animals better than their own kiddos and then kill them. Right? Effing yikes.

So what about love for Fido or Fluffy or Lassie or Benji? Can you show THEM how much you care?

I bet you can also hear Sam Elliot proclaiming, “Dog. He’s what’s for dinner………………..”

(Be aware that due to some negative feedback they’ve received, ie., angry messages, hostile tweets, violent phone calls, death threats … they are monitoring their feedback more frequently, but want to let you know how important dogs are to them, and how much they love dogs like you love pigs, chickens, cows, lambs, so please keep an open mind and remember this is all for the love of animals.)
