Welcome to Animal Protection Services. We are a registered charity that investigate and prosecute organised animal cruelty.

Founded in 2019, we undertake intelligence-driven investigations, with the goal of presenting verifiable and credible first-hand evidence of animal welfare criminality. We work in the field and in the court room to get justice and advance the interests of animals.

We identify high-level suspects through intelligence analysis and by sharing intelligence with partner organisations. We have an experienced Intelligence Development Unit that consists of intelligence analysts and researchers.

We rescue animals from cruel and abusive situations ensuring that animals are protected from harm and given a second chance.

Animal welfare investigators appeal for information following dog dumped outside animal sanctuary

Animal Protection Services is appealing for information after a dog suspected to have been used in animal fighting was found abandoned outside of an animal sanctuary in Liverpool.

The dog, thought to be a Patterdale Terrier-type, was found near an animal sanctuary on Spurriers Lane in Melling, Liverpool. A passer-by took the dog to a vet who assessed the injuries as so severe that the leg had to be amputated.

The dog has been seized and taken into our care pending an investigation.
