Eurogroup for Animals was created in the 1980’s to improve the welfare of animals across Europe by driving and delivering coordinated advocacy at EU level in support of European animal welfare legislation.

The ISPCA work with Eurogroup for Animals on a number of important animal welfare campaigns to achieve legislative change at an EU level. The ISPCA currently work with Eurogroup for Animals on domestic and farm animal welfare issues such as puppy farming and long distance live exports.
