5 unforgettable veterinary campaigns from 2022

As the year draws to a close, it’s time to celebrate all the great animal welfare projects we have helped promote this year as a community. Here’s a recap of some of the most prominent veterinary campaigns from 2022 – and don’t worry, there’s still time to get involved!


 #CutTheCrop campaign


The British Veterinary Association started the #CutTheCrop campaign to take a stand against the illegal ear cropping of dogs. People across the UK shared their support by posting the hashtag #CutTheCrop and calling out celebrities on social media who posted pictures of their cropped dogs. 


Want to get involved? Share your concerns by writing a letter to retailers who sell ear cropping kits using this template. If you’re a veterinary professional, you can report cases to your Local Authority Animal Health Function. 




Did you know that 2,000 greyhounds died due to racing between 2018 and 2021? Not only this, but greyhound racing causes frequent injuries to the dogs involved making it a significant welfare issue. Organisations including the RSPCA, Dogs Trust and The Blue Cross are calling for greyhound racing to come to an end as a way to stop unnecessary deaths of innocent greyhounds. Show your support by using the hashtag #CutTheChase and/or write to your MP using this template




Farm assurance schemes use veterinary expertise to set high standards of animal health and welfare. It encourages the vet professionals and the public to choose UK farm assured products. Share the BVA’s #ChooseAssure UK Farm Assurance Scheme infographic and display it across your practice to spread awareness. 


Cancel Out Cruelty 


This campaign helped raise funds for animal rescue teams, who have been particularly swamped this year. In fact, the RSPCA received 22,908 animal abandonment reports between January and July alone this year. This is mainly down to the increase in pet adoptions during the pandemic, as well as the impact of the cost of living crisis. 


Phasing Out Lab Animals


The RSPCA have a goal to phase out animal testing by 2030. In order to achieve this, it has outlined the following 10 things that need to happen in order for inhumane lab testing to come to an end: 


  • Commitment
  • Leadership
  • The right culture
  • Funding
  • Collaboration
  • Awareness
  • Training
  • Critical analysis
  • Rethink of current testing requirements
  • Faster process of validating ‘alternatives’
