Animal Equality exposes the cruel and illegal practices in egg industry


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.
