Factory farms confine tens of billions of animals globally in cruel conditions. We’ve seen that advocacy, including reforms to phase out the worst practices and work to promote alternatives, can improve the lives of billions of animals. Yet we see little philanthropic attention to the issue.
If you are a funder interested in farm animal welfare, we are happy to work with you to identify the best giving opportunities. We are eager to work in partnership with other funders and share information to help resources go to the best work. If interested, please email [email protected].
