What we stand for


As an international animal protection organization, we work to end cruelty to farmed animals.

Whether we’re working to educate the public on the horrific reality inside factory farms and slaughterhouses, asking governments to adopt laws that protect animals, or encouraging major companies to implement policies that benefit animals, we never lose sight of our main goal: reduce animal suffering.
