Help End Horse Slaughter Act Now!
Animal Protectors



Pigs, cows, chickens, and other animals killed for food are almost invisible because the meat industry hides them from us.

Although they also feel and suffer, they are the most defenseless animals. Fortunately, they can count on you!

Join the Animal Protectors, Animal Equality’s online action team, and help end the fear and pain animals feel on farms and in slaughterhouses:

  • Promote laws to end animal cruelty.
  • Discover and show the world what happens in factory farms and slaughterhouses.
  • Inspire people to consider animals and replace animal products with plant-based proteins.
  • Persuade companies to raise their animal welfare standards.

All of this can be carried out through simple actions that we will send via email that you can do from home, using your cell phone or computer, in just minutes:

  • Sign petitions against animal cruelty.
  • Contact your political representatives (sending an email, calling their office, or sending a message on social media) to support laws that protect animals from abuse.
  • Make your voice heard by companies and demand that they respect animals.

The animals need you. Sign up today!

Have questions? We have answers.

Why does Animal Equality and the Animal Protectors focus primarily on animals used for food?

Because they are the animals that need us the most, they are the ones who suffer and die in the largest numbers and those who are generally not covered by animal protection laws and policies. For example, 9.9 out of 10 animals used and killed by humans in the United States are those used for food (and this does not include aquatic animals).

Why are you campaigning for companies to say no to cages for hens and other animals?

We know that animal suffering will not end overnight, so as we continue to inspire people to reduce their consumption of animal products, we are making sure that animals that are still forced to suffer on farms and in slaughterhouses have a better life. Getting hens out of cages or mother pigs out of crates is a first step towards our goal of a world where all animals are respected and protected.

What do I need to be part of the Animal Protectors?

You only need to register in the form above and you’ll be part of the team! You will immediately start receiving emails with simple and effective digital actions to help animals, such as signing petitions or commenting on social media. Don’t have social media? It’s a great way to reach important decision makers in our campaigns, so please consider it!

How do the actions of Animal Protectors help animals?

Your actions will help expose the truth of the cruel and abusive treatment of animals inside farms and slaughterhouses, and with this: you will help inspire people to take animals off of their plates, motivate major companies to ban the most extreme practices like the use of cages with new animal welfare commitments, and help put pressure on the government to pass new laws for animals.

Can I also support with in-person actions?

The advantage of being an Animal Protector is that most of the actions you will take are digital, so you can help animals no matter where you are! Sometimes we also hold physical events, like protests, so keep an eye in the Animal Protector emails to find out if anything is happening in your area! (This is why we request your zip code :)).
