Mercy For Animals is an amazing Nonprofit organization! They go above and beyond to support animals in this community and others. I am proud to say that MFA has organized many charity events and my art piece was sold at one of them! It is beautiful to see how they are doing their part in making this planet a more sustainable and safe place for everyone, and creating magic everywhere they go!

MFA’s many undercover videos had me in tears several times. They’re the reason I switched to going vegan. Their method of helping animal farmers transition to plant farming called TransFARMation is so effective and lucrative for the farmers. They help consumers realize what factory farming really is like such as CostcoExposed. Now they’re doing BreakfastofChampions to encourage major restaurant chains such as Denny’s and Bob Evans offer more plant-based menu. I’m so thrilled to be a part of all the work they do!! I’m proud to be a Mercy for Animals volunteer.

I have been involved with MFA for about 4 years. They are the reason that I am a Vegan Animal Rights Activist. Through the publication Compassionate Living, I learned the true horrors of factory farming in the meat, dairy, and egg industries. They are on top of so many issues globally and have some awesome activist training webinars. Their Transfarmation Campaign to help farmers transition into sustainable crops is not only incredibly awesome for the animals but the farmers get to realize actually OWNING their own crops and not be beholden to predatory corporations. Everyone cares so much and I am in pretty much daily contact with them so that we can work together to make the world a better place. Vegan for the animals, for the planet, for human liberation. I am also an Undercover Ally. If not for the brave actions of the undercover investigators, the public would never see what horrors lie behind the walls of factory farms.

I am honored to be a volunteer with Mercy for Animals. Every message this nonprofit sends is spot-on to the inhumane manner in which animals are treated, and every volunteer action in response to the messages gives all volunteers a reason to show the utmost empathy to the plight of animals in our world. I enjoy working online and in-person with the staff, one in which each member lives the principles established by Mercy for Animals in order to bring awareness to the suffering of animals and the hope that humankind will emulate what is exemplified.

Mercy for Animals has been acting in truly meaningful ways-- they are supporting farmers to stop killing animals and to grow plants, they expose the worst abuses, like how the chickens bred for Costco suffer every minute of their lives or using drones to show what those in animal agricultural don't want people to see. They are changing how people see our treatment of all in the name of taste by showing that drinking milk actually means we are supporting calves being stolen from their mothers. Mercy for Animals is fighting for the billions of cries that go ignored each and every day to finally be heard by us.

MFA is an incredible non-profit doing amazing work to reduce the suffering of farmed animals and ultimately help fix our food systems so one day animals aren’t raised and killed for food. The organization is transparent and their team is passionate and professional. I will continue to donate to MFA and support their mission and vision.

Founded in 1999, Mercy for Animals has been fighting effectively to curb the horrible abuses in factory farming. First and foremost through its investigative undercover reporting and drone footage, and also through their work at the legislative and corporate level. Nine billion animals are slaughtered annually in the US and most are raised in tortuous conditions.

MFA does so much important work to help save animals a lifetime of suffering in our horrific factory farming system. From corporate lobbying and organizing demonstrations to legal advocacy to direct outreach to the public, MFA is a powerhouse in the farmed animal rights space.

MFA does absolutely amazing work for the animals (and consequently for people and the planet). I've been a supporter for a number of years and I've been constantly impressed by the different types of programs they work on including legislative efforts, working with farmers to get them to switch from growing animals for food to vegetable farms, working to help make vegan products more accessible, going undercover to expose the cruelties of factory farming, among other things. I've also had the good fortune of meeting a number of the kind people working for animals including the president Leah, both in person and virtually, and they are all great people completely committed to the cause of helping animals. I'm constantly impressed by their work and commitment and love seeing the changes that are happening for animals (slowly but surely) with the help of this amazing organization.

Mercy for Animals is a non-profit that I'm always happy to donate to. It has a clear, noble mission and lays out both the long-term strategy as well as short-term tactical actions they're taking to get there. They transparently keep stakeholders up to date about where money goes and I'm proud to support their work.

I've had friends who work for them and know they pay living wages but focus on having donations go to saving animals and reducing suffering. Instead of focusing on the animals with the most financial support (e.g. dogs, cats) they focus on those suffering the most in factory farms. They work with businesses to reduce their inhumane treatment of farmed animals. Fantastic place to donate your money if you want to reduce suffering.

Mercy For Animals changed my life....truly. I viewed their video "Farm To Fridge" and changed everything that very day! After that, I checked them out further to see how effective they are with donations and programs, and was amazed at what I learned. The Founder/Executive Director doesn't even take a salary!!

Their investigations and honest, non judgmental approach to educating the general public is impressive and dangerous work. My hat's off the entire team. They are a wonderful group doing a massive job!

Thank you, Mercy For Animals, for doing work most of us do not have the courage to do ourselves!

This group is really only interested in celebrity donors. I got a snarky email from a woman there about the amount I could I afford to give them. Then I saw that they are in an expensive address in LA, with nearly 20 administrative -- non-activist - employees. They said they are in their own building on Santa Monica Blvd to be near celebrities, not animals. This charity has lost its focus and its soul.

This is one of the great animal rights/welfare groups. They have been documenting the unspeakable cruelty to animals occurring in factory farms. They have revealed, on video tape, the horrors that the written word cannot do justice to. Their job is dangerous and difficult, and they have given us a picture of animal cruelty that many people cannot believe is happening and that some people do not want to see. But their efforts have inspired others to change their diets and lifestyles and to support this organization. They are the advocates the the most ignored and most brutally treated animals. They deserve everyone's help and contributions.

Thank God we have an organization that help the voiceless innocent farm animals by making us aware of the horrors that these creatures suffer at these slaughter houses. These awareness will compel us to change our eating habits by eliminating fowl, meat and fish from our diets and by spreading the word among those who are not aware of the cruelty these innocent animals are exposed in order to supply the markets to feed America with animal products. If we stop consuming the farms will stop the slaughter.
