Brightside in the media

One of Brightside’s key objectives is to raise awareness of animal welfare issues in the community.  Over the past few years we have achieved this aim not only with our education program but through engaging the media extensively on many topical issues.

Founder Emma Haswell has covered many issues such as rodeo cruelty, greyhound racing, battery hens, pig farming and puppy farming. Links to some of the media we have done are below.
