Careful stewards of your support

Animal Equality takes its financial responsibility seriously and believes in the careful stewardship of the funds our donors entrust to us. We rely solely on the generosity of individuals and charitable foundations to provide the precious resources needed to conduct our work on behalf of farmed animals.


When you make a gift to Animal Equality, you can rest assured your investment for animals is being spent in the most effective way possible.

Your gift is empowering brave undercover investigators to expose animal cruelty, it’s helping develop innovative educational campaigns in eight countries, and its changing policies for animals around the world through unrivaled legal and corporate change.

This is what Animal Charity Evaluators says

Animal Equality achieves significant successes with very small amounts of money; in particular, they have conducted undercover investigations for a fraction of the cost of some other organizations. They have a strong understanding of success and failure and are continually setting goals to improve their performance and increase their impact. As Animal Equality has expanded internationally, they’ve hired local advocates with strong cultural knowledge and contacts in each country.”
