EXPOSING ANIMAL CRUELTY

Saving lives around the world by exposing the truth.

THE POWER OF UNDERCOVER INVESTIGATIONS


“Investigations are the most powerful tool we have to expose the cruel and abusive treatment of animals inside the secretive world of industrial animal agriculture.

Our undercover investigators document and help end horrific animal abuse. Their work is frequently featured in the media encouraging consumers make more informed decisions each time they choose what to eat. It also persuades policymakers and companies to make meaningful changes for animals.”

A GLOBAL IMPACT


“Since we were founded in 2006, Animal Equality investigators have filmed inside more than 700 factory farms and slaughterhouses across 13 countries. The footage we have obtained has helped launch several major campaigns that have changed the world for animals.

Several of our investigations have been first of their kind looks into the secretive animal agriculture industry. In 2008, Animal Equality made history when we became the first organization to infiltrate slaughterhouses in Spain. In both Mexico and Brazil, we conducted the first ever investigations into the cruel egg industry, igniting conversations about the way animals are treated. “

THEIR STORY


““Undercover videos were the key to my learning about the ways humans exploit animals, and they fueled my desire to fight for them. Investigations are critical in fighting the systemic abuses that occur in factory farms all around the world. Their business depends on keeping people in the dark.

In addition to exposing the truth about the abuse farmed animals endure, undercover investigations have led to the shuttering of facilities, animal rescues, and have inspired people to join the animal protection movement. For all these reasons I knew I had to find the courage to do this.“ – Undercover Investigator”
