Mercy for Animals is on the front lines—fighting to protect farmed animals. Working in factory farms, corporate boardrooms, and courts of justice, it is speaking up to end cruelty and inspire compassion. Mercy for Animals has three core approaches to achieving its mission. The first is to make alternatives to animal-based meat, eggs, and dairy as attractive and accessible as possible. Mercy for Animals also works to make animal products less competitive and less attractive to consumers, food producers, and policymakers. Finally, Mercy for Animals works to reduce the suffering for animals in the current food system.

Since its first investigation over 20 years ago, Mercy for Animals has made a huge impact for animals through campaigns, storytelling, and the mobilization of thousands of advocates. Through holding governments accountable and pushing for change in laws, Mercy for Animals has saved more than 300,000 animals from the food system in the past three years alone.

Over the next three years, Mercy for Animals plans to expand its work and make greater headway towards its mission of ending industrial animal agriculture and constructing a just and sustainable global food system. The plans include decreasing the number of animals in the food system and reducing the suffering for farmed animals that are trapped in the food system. Mercy For Animals also aims to build people power and increase public awareness of the atrocities of farmed animals to drive change including developing solutions to speed the transition away from industrial animal agriculture.
