Naturewatch Foundation run animal welfare campaigns within the United Kingdom, most notably campaigns against animal experiments, puppy farming and badger baiting,[3] as well as running stray animal welfare programmes in Ukraine.[4] They have published The Compassionate Shopping Guide regularly since 1993,[5] endorsing cruelty-free cosmetic and household product brands. They claim to operate the world's strictest endorsement criteria for cruelty-free companies,[6][7] insisting on a fixed cut-off date animal testing policy for both brands and parent companies.[8]
