The heartbreaking lives of pigs raised for meat
Animal Equality reveals the brutality of Europe’s pig meat industry and illegal activities on farms for which many perpetrators haven’t yet been punished.
Animal Equality is an international organization with offices in 8 countries working with society, governments, and companies to end cruelty to farmed animals. Founded in 2006, Animal Equality’s vision is a world in which all animals are respected and protected. To achieve that lofty goal, the organization uses undercover investigations to expose the cruelty and systemic abuse within the industry of animal agriculture.
To date, Animal Equality has released over 120 investigations — footage that has reached billions of people worldwide and has been used by countless media outlets and filmmakers to show what really happens on factory farms and in slaughterhouses. Animal Equality’s pioneering virtual reality experience, iAnimal, incorporates this filming to show everyday people the truth behind our broken food system and is utilized by hundreds of institutions and organizations across the globe.
Today, Animal Equality is one of the most effective advocates for farmed animals in the world, working in countries where there is the most opportunity to create long-lasting change for animals through legal advocacy, corporate outreach, food policy, and community education.
