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
