May 2024

From launching our first investigation in Chile to holding companies accountable to their animal welfare commitments, we continue to drive meaningful change for farmed animals around the world. Additionally, our influence on the Farm Bill and our prestigious environmental-award nomination highlight our ability to bring factory farms into pivotal policy conversations.

April 2024

At a historic gala in Los Angeles, Mercy For Animals supporters reflected on a quarter-century of unwavering dedication, advocacy, and compassion for farmed animals. To celebrate Dr. Jane Goodall’s 90th birthday, we co-created an inspiring star-studded video. And we countered a detrimental “ag-gag” bill in Kentucky by releasing a compelling investigation exposing conditions the legislation sought to keep hidden.

March 2024

In March, Mercy For Animals supported passage of the first octopus-farming ban in the United States. We also secured a novel policy from a foodservice company that sets concrete meat-reduction goals. A new undercover investigation in Brazil highlighted the horrors of cattle slaughter performed with sledgehammers and axes.

February 2024

We celebrated a huge victory in our aim to inspire local governments to shift purchases toward plant-based foods. We also released a new undercover investigation calling out one of the 20 largest U.S. restaurant chains for failing to keep animal welfare promises. In Brazil, several companies reported important progress on their pledges to eliminate cages from their egg supply chains.

January 2024

We welcomed a new year with an important launch event for schools serving plant-based meals in Brazil, an explosion of new oat milk items on menus across the United States, legislative efforts, and more.
