OUR MISSION


Animal Equality is an international organization working with society, governments, and companies to end cruelty to farmed animals.

Our work


Animal Equality combines four strategies in its campaigns to help animals.

We go undercover to document and expose the cruel treatment of animals in factory farms and slaughterhouses. To this day, we have inspected over 800 factory farms and slaughterhouses in 13 countries.

We raise awareness and inform millions of people who watch our videos so they can see for themselves what the meat, egg, dairy, and fishing industries do to animals. We campaign to convince companies to update their policies that affect animals and our team of attorneys advocate for increased protections and animal rights.

Joaquin Phoenix with Animal Equality
“When you witness the horror that really happens behind closed doors and slaughterhouses to farm animals all over the world, it’s impossible not to be affected by it and to realize that we have to do something drastic to stop it.”

Joaquin Phoenix

Rooney Mara
“Nothing prepares you for looking into the eyes of a mother pig whose life is to be impregnated and left in a cage until she’s slaughtered. I can’t imagine how awful it must be to be literally trapped and crushing your own babies and not be able to do anything about it.”

Rooney Mara
Activist and actor
