Animal Rights Cambridge (ARC) is an all-volunteer, inter-generational group of people committed to simple and effective strategies to end the exploitation of non-human animals. ARC, which started in 1977 as Cambridge Animal Aid, is the longest standing local Animal Rights group in the UK. Through a programme of relentless lawful protests and information campaigns we focus on crucial issues and confront companies and institutions in order to raise public awareness and bring forth meaningful change for the animals.
Animal Rights Cambridge is against all forms of prejudice and discrimination. We believe that basic rights, based upon the interests of the individual, should be protected regardless of age, sex, race, sexual orientation, disability, species membership or any other characteristic.
Over the years we have seen a number of positive changes in Cambridge:
- The Girton Lab – Set to be Europe’s biggest primate lab — Cancelled due to ‘security costs’!
- Michelin Star restaurant Midsummer House — drops Foie Gras from their menu leading to other Cambridge restaurants following suit!
- Foie Gras selling stall at Cambridge market — Closed!
- Biocair International — pledged never to work with infamous lab Huntingdon Life Sciences ever again!
- Recently Fur sellers Mook Vintage — Closed!
- And the list goes on…
We are more than ready for the challenges we face. If you are an animal exploiter be ready to work with us to change, because change is coming whether you like it or not! If you are a supporter of animal rights please join us in our lawful campaigns. Working together we can stop animal abuse and all forms of exploitation.
