Animal Equality is a fantastic organization that does incredible work on behalf of animals who cannot stand up or speak for themselves. They inspired me to go vegan after watching their iAnimal video.

Animal Equality is a great organization that helps give a voice to all of the factory farm animals that can't speak for themselves. My experience with them has been nothing but positive.

I first encountered Animal Equality at the Animal Rights Conference in LA in 2018. Everyone at the booth was so kind and knowledgable that I decided to learn more about the work they do. I was so impressed by what they have achieved for animals! They are a truly effective organization doing important work.

The primary factor that drew me to support Animal Equality was they focus on a segment of animal rights that is usually not in the spotlight of other animal rights groups. The fact they primarily deal with protecting farm animals separates them from other non-profits. Though the odds of eliminating animals as a food group are long and a challenging venture, Animal Equality draws attention to the conditions these animals are raised. They have been a leader in advocating changes which include improved living conditions through action and legislation.
Please support this well run organization making a difference.

Our family are appreciative supporters of Animal Equality. I was first introduced to the fine work AE does through their virtual reality video investigations exposing animal cruelty in various processing plants. From changing laws to make animal cruelty a federal crime in Mexico to exposing environmental consequences of pig factories in Spain, Animal Equality is changing lives all over the world. I have excluded meat in my diet for 2 1/2 years now and am healthier and happier for it. Thank you Animal Equality for standing up for animals and introducing plant based alternatives. Pete

This organization is one of the most progressive and effective animal-protection organizations that exist—in both the U.S. and internationally. Their Investigations and Legal Advocacy programs are especially impressive. They produce a high volume of undercover investigations, which are absolutely vital to their other programmatic work. In addition, Animal Equality is on the cutting-edge of animal law advocacy, vigorously litigating and developing strategic litigation and legislative initiatives. Animals in the U.S. (and in the other seven countries in which Animal Equality operates) are so lucky to have this organization advocating on their behalf!

What's more, this organization boasts a high percentage of female leadership, which is rare among animal-protection nonprofits and is indicative of Animal Equality's consistent progressive values. (This is important because female-identifying individuals make up the large majority of the animal-protection movement yet, in the movement as a whole, they occupy only a small percentage of leadership positions. Animal Equality has made great strides towards gender equity.)

Animal Equality is one of my favourite organizations. Not only are they extremely efficient at reducing animal suffering and making changes for animals all over the world but their employees are some of the smartest, nicest, most passionate humans I have ever met. Their exposes have uncovered a number of astonishing and important discoveries and that have led to extremely important strides towards animal liberation. Thank you to all that you do, AE!!

I have consistently donated to Animal Equality because I support their mission and believe in the work that they do. The I-animal project is very impactful and truly changes people’s perspective on eating animals. Once you see the suffering through the virtual reality headset you can never undo what you have learned about factory farming. it’s also great that Animal Equality shares these videos with other groups around the world.

They have managed to create an international family of compassionate individuals who are passionate about the cause. Everyone is eager to help each other and celebrate each other's accomplishments, because everyone is working towards the same goal: making the world a better place for all animals.

I have volunteered for Animal Equality a couple of times at their annual galas and leafleting events have always had a nice time. You can tell they appreciate their volunteers and make sure we have a good time while helping. At the last event we were able to have a 3 course dinner while being able to watch the show by simply trading off with other volunteers so everyone was happy.



I enjoy volunteering for Animal Equality and am proud that they see all social justice issues as interconnected and work together with other groups to make positive changes for animals.

Hi! I have had the good fortune to have volunteered for Animal Equality over the past 2 years. My work has primarily included working on California Proposition 12, participation in hugely successful galas, and dissemination of information about the plight of farm animals. The organization is outstanding in every way. The leadership, staff and other volunteers are knowledgeable, dedicated, friendly, helpful and well organized. I felt that everyone worked together as a team for animal welfare. I encountered a special working atmosphere when hard work, thoughtfulness, professionalism and transparency are the norm. I look forward to being involved with Animal Equality for years to come.

I worked for Animal Equality for a summer a couple years ago doing their iAnimal Tour and have been volunteering with them since then. Animal Equality is a great organization and I love volunteering for them. They don't demand a ton from their volunteers and they are organized and everyone who works for them is so nice and welcoming. They all show they really appreciate you being there and helping out.

Animal Equality's mission is incredibly important. As humans, we need to fight for the lives of beings who cannot fight for themselves, and stand up for what is right and just. Animal Equality is doing just that by exposing the terrible secrets of the meat and dairy industry to the public, promoting change in big companies and individuals alike. Thank you for everything you do, and keep up the great work.
