Since being founded in 1824, the RSPCA has established itself as the leading organisation on animal welfare in England and Wales and its influence has spread world-wide. Their work encompasses companion animals, farm animals, wildlife and animals used in research, and includes education and campaigning, as well as enforcement, rescue and rehabilitation.
Andrew Gwynne said:
“I’m proud to support the RSPCA and the work that their inspectors do to protect animals on the ground across the Denton and Reddish constituency.
“I know how important animal welfare issues are to my constituents and it is an issue that I continue to take up on their behalf in this Parliament.
“I am looking forward to working with the RSPCA to ensure that animal welfare and the protection of the idea that animals are sentient beings continues to be enshrined in UK law after we leave the EU.”
