Who We Are
Animal Equality is an international organization working with societies, governments and companies to end cruelty to farmed animals. Animal Equality educates the public on the intense cruelty of factory farming and inspires people to adopt compassionate food choices. They work with companies to change their policies to reduce the suffering of animals and engage government policymakers to take immediate action for animals. Animal Equality investigators have been to more than 700 hundred factory farms and slaughterhouses in three continents and eight countries exposing the horrific realities of industrial farming.
Animal Equality’s investigations inside rabbit farms in Italy and Spain have paved the way to end cruel cages for nearly 330 million rabbits in Europe. Their investigation of slaughterhouses in Mexico led to historic initiative to protect farmed animals in the Mexican Senate. Their drone investigations in India and Spain were the first of their kind. Their investigation inside British pig farms led to the sentencing of two workers on multiple counts of animal cruelty and their investigation inside Spanish pig farms led to the historic prosecution of two workers for animal abuse.
In 2017, Animal Equality released 23 groundbreaking investigations in seven countries, won 42 corporate policies that will end some of the worst forms of cruelty for millions of animals, and appeared in 2,600 media stories with a media reach of over 2.2 billion.
Animal Equality was named a Top Charity by Animal Charity Evaluators, a distinction earned three out of the last four years, and a testament to their effectiveness, impact, and value.
