Campaigns against animal vivisection grew significantly in the Victorian era. This was perhaps a function of increased ownership of domestic pets such as dogs and cats. Before that, animals had been kept and used almost solely for work and their owners did not think of them as part of the family. The group that produced this leaflet, the Victoria Street Society for the Protection of Animals from Vivisection, was one of many small groups during the period that were amalgamated into two larger ones: the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection (BUAV) and the National Anti-Vivisection Society (NAVS).
