There is a wide range of legislation in the UK designed to protect the health and welfare of both domesticated and wild animals.
Animal health and welfare legislation is enforced jointly by the Local Authority and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) in association with other government bodies and independent organisations like the RSPCA. There are links to these websites at the bottom of this page.
