Mercy For Animals is dedicated to ending animal cruelty around the world.
Cryptocurrency donations allow us to investigate factory farms and slaughterhouses, pressure companies to adopt meaningful animal welfare policies, and empower people to make compassionate food choices. Mercy For Animals has conducted 75 on-the-ground investigations and 13 drone investigations, resulting in 75 animal cruelty prosecutions, six law-enforcement raids, and the farthest-reaching corporate animal welfare policies ever adopted.
Once implemented, these policies will potentially impact more than 1 billion animals in 90 countries.
One day there will be no slaughterhouses. Every donation brings us closer to that day.
International news coverage of our investigations has exposed the cruel reality of factory farming to hundreds of millions of households around the world.
The footage has led to criminal charges against dozens of factory farmers caught on video abusing animals, resulting in multiple convictions with significant fines and jail time.
Mercy For Animals has worked with major companies, including Walmart, Burger King, Nestlé, and Perdue Farms, to implement comprehensive animal welfare policies that, combined, will reduce the suffering of over a billion animals every year.
Our supporters have championed groundbreaking legislation and defeated harmful ag-gag bills that sought to silence factory farm whistleblowers in 19 states.
We reach millions of people each year with inspiring videos, life-changing information, and comprehensive resources to help them make compassionate food choices.
Farmed animals are the most abused and exploited animals on the planet.
Mercy For Animals strives to help the greatest number of animals. We’ve pushed for policy reform for chickens, who make up nearly 90 percent of farmed land animals. And we are ramping up our campaigns to protect fish. Some estimates show that trillions of fish are killed every year to feed humans.
Our first-ever investigation into deadly driftnet fishing uncovered an industry that leaves its victims to slowly suffocate, violently saws off the fins of live fish, and drowns animals entangled in its nets.
Join the millions of people standing up for animals.
