Produced in collaboration with the Battersea Dogs and Cats home to help the helpless.

Battersea Dogs & Cats Home welcomes the Government’s acknowledgement that the current punishments for the most shocking animal cruelty offences are inadequate and now require “the full force of the law”.

Current penalties for such offences are not strong enough
The Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, the Rt. Hon. Michael Gove MP stated in the House of Commons on Thursday and reiterated in a speech on Friday that the current penalties for such offences are not strong enough.
Admitting this is an issue he feels strongly about, Michael Gove said:

“I am not someone who will automatically reach for stronger criminal sanctions as the only route to dealing with a particular problem, but there are particular cases of animal cruelty where we may well need to revisit the existing criminal sanctions in order to ensure that the very worst behaviour is dealt with, with the full force of the law.”
