Open Philanthropy recommended two grants totaling $134,000 over two years to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Selangor (SPCA Selangor) to start a farm animal welfare program largely focused on a cage-free campaign for layer and broiler hens. SPCA Selangor plans to build connections to retailers and producers, attend trainings, workshops, and meetings, and reach out to the government in Malaysia, where millions of farmed birds are consumed each year.

One of these grants was made by a 501(c)(4) social welfare organization, to which we occasionally make funding recommendations.

This falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.
