Welcome to Political Animal Wales

RSPCA Cymru has liaised closely and extensively with devolved decision-makers in Wales since the opening of the Senedd in 1999.


Our purpose

Following the onset of devolution, powers relating to animal health and welfare were increasingly devolved to Wales. Further to the results of the referendum on March 3rd 2011, animal welfare officially became a matter of the Assembly's concern, excluding hunting and animal experimentation.

Political Animal is a dedicated website for decision makers and their staff at all levels of Government in Wales. A range of downloadable resources, policy insights and more can be found by opening the relevant tabs above.
