Animal welfare is always at the forefront of what we do here at HG Blake.
Every effort is made to ensure that animals are comfortable and free from stress throughout the procurement process. All our staff who deal directly with the animals are highly trained in welfare and handling techniques, with our housing and handling facilities designed to maximise animal comfort and reduce stress.

So HG Blake can guarantee you confidence and trust in our product, procedures and service.
The Five Freedoms
As part of our welfare protocol HG Blake subscribes to the ‘Five Freedoms’ – a set of ideals laid out in a 1965 UK government report, which has since been adopted by animal rights organisations worldwide.
