Animal Charity Evaluators (ACE) is an independent organization that evaluates various animal protection groups in the US and Europe each year to assess their effectiveness and efficacy for animals. Every year since 2014, Animal Equality has been recognized as one of the most efficient animal protection organizations in the world.

In its 2018 analysis, ACE found that we effectively used our limited resources to help save millions of animals from a cruel fate and again named Animal Equality a Top Charity.

I believe it's our right to know what is really happening behind closed doors. And now, thanks to Animal Equality's investigations, we have the power to see, understand, and take action.

We want to share some of our international achievements with you. Without your support, none of this would be possible; thanks for being on the side of the animals!

Success in China

A total of 33 stalls belonging to the ‘Three Birds of Dali Markets’ and a dog slaughterhouse situated in Nanhai – Foshan (Guangdong Province) were closed by Chinese authorities after Animal Equality’s investigation into the illegal and cruel trade in such establishments. This success was also made possible due to the collaboration of the Volunteer Centre of Guangzhou.
