Background Information"Animal Concern was formed in 1988 and incorporates its parent body the Scottish Anti-Vivisection Society, founded in 1876 to fight laws legalising live animal experiments. The change to Animal Concern reflected growing involvement in campaigns against other issues such as factory-farming, dog-fighting, the fur trade, performing animals, killing of seals, misuse of air weapons and bloodsports." Campaigning throughout the United Kingdom and globally, Animal Concern has also established an independent advice service on animal issues, the Animal Concern Advice Line (, and the Save Our Seals Fund, working in seal conservation. Animal Concern should not be confused with a small charity (no. 512200) of the same name, based in Tyne-and-Wear. Source:
