Our Mission is the advancement of Christian respect and responsibility for the animal creation with special reference to Catholic teaching and beliefs.

Catholic Concern for Animals, formerly The Catholic Study Circle, was founded in 1929.  Its magazine The Ark was first published in 1937 when its editor, Dom Ambrose Agius OSB, said:
‘It is not only the cause of animals, their welfare and protection, which is here advocated.  It is the cause also of the good name of the Catholic Church, often attacked and seldom defended in this matter of the proper treatment of animals.’
