This year's Autumn Appeal is to

Please help us to provide crucial support to countries needing guidance on emergency killing for disease control

A number of countries are currently experiencing devastating outbreaks of African Swine Fever virus with cases reported across Africa, Asia and Europe*.  It is a highly contagious, haemorrhagic viral disease affecting both domestic and wild pigs.  Although it is harmless to humans, the disease can kill pigs within a few days and the fatality rate can be up to 100%.  The only effective way to control this and many other disease outbreaks is to cull the affected animals. It is crucial that such culls are both humane and minimise the risk of further disease spread. The HSA’s online guide – On-Farm Killing for Disease Control Purposes –  provides much needed guidance for those tasked with this unpleasant yet essential job.

Thanks to the generosity of those who donated to our Spring Appeal, the guidance is being translated into Chinese.  We would like to make versions of the guide available in other languages; translations currently under consideration include Vietnamese, Polish and Romanian.

Each language translation costs around £3,000. 

Please help by donating to the Autumn Appeal. Thank you for your support.

I understand that other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify. I understand the charity will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I have given.
