Animal Equality’s vision is a world in which all animals are respected and protected.

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

As an animal protection organization, we are guided by compassion, determination, and effectiveness.

Using these values to launch innovative projects and strategic campaigns, we work to expose and abolish the cruel practices of the animal agriculture industry.

Our teams in the United States, Germany, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom, Mexico, Brazil, and India consist of highly qualified professionals with years of experience in undercover investigations, corporate campaigns, political outreach, and the development of large-scale education programs.


With over ten years of experience in international campaigns, we are committed to saving as many animals as possible and to reducing the enormous suffering animals endure on factory farms. Our commitment to continually assessing the impact of our campaigns and programs makes us increasingly efficient at saving lives.

Our work

Animal Equality works strategically in four distinct areas to ensure progress for animals.

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.

The work of Animal Equality gives me hope that the people who watch their work will also choose to live more compassionate lives.

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.
