UCL Animal Rights Society exists to raise awareness of and campaign against the rights violations of non-human animals, wherever they occur.

We are an educational, non-judgemental platform of people who believe that animals – as sentient beings with the capacity both to suffer and to flourish – are worthy of our moral consideration. We believe that animals are entitled to the possession of their own existence, free from exploitation at the hands of humanity.

Through talks, documentary screenings, debates, volunteering opportunities, campaigns, visits to animal sanctuaries and shelters, and (of course!) social events, we aim to create a warm, diverse and inclusive environment for everyone with an interest in animal rights.

We look forward to welcoming you to our Society! In the meantime, please spread the news about this society by liking, commenting and sharing our socials. Together, we can create a wonderful family of animal lovers at UCL!
