English - activities and campaigns



We are involved with all animal welfare issues as well as running our rescue centre for mistreated and homeless cats.

With help from our volunteers and in collaboration with other charities, we help raise awareness of animal welfare issues by arranging stands in Bergen city centre.  Members of the public can obtain information on such issues and also sign petitions to help us give animals a voice.

Animal Protection Bergen also stage demonstrations as another way of raising awareness.  In May 2007, we protested against the use of animals in circuses.  The demonstrations' aim was to help convince Bergen City Council, who were just about to vote on the issue, that circuses with animals were not welcome in Bergen.  Unfortunately they voted to continue allowing circuses using animals to come to Bergen.  We will demonstrate against this for as long as required. 

In order to raise money for our important cause, we hold a flea market.  Throughout the year, members of the public can donate goods for sale or just come along and help support us support animals in need.
