What We Do
We change the world for animals.
Mercy For Animals believes that a humane society is possible. We are committed to reducing the greatest amount of suffering for the largest number of animals. Our efforts focus on protecting farmed animals—the most abused and exploited animals on the planet—and utilize a broad range of strategic approaches that seek to expose cruelty, prosecute abusers, and inspire consumers to make compassionate food choices.
We are on the frontlines fighting to protect farmed animals. From factory farms to corporate boardrooms, courts of justice to courts of public opinion, MFA is there to speak up against cruelty, and for compassion.
Shrouded in secrecy and hidden away from public scrutiny, industrial farms raise and kill 9 billion animals a year in the United States. But what are they trying to hide? MFA undercover investigations of factory farms and slaughterhouses expose the brutal realities of this violent and cruel industry.
Shrouded in secrecy and hidden away from public scrutiny, industrial farms raise and kill nearly 700 million animals a year in Canada. But what are they trying to hide? MFA undercover investigations of factory farms and slaughterhouses expose the brutal realities of this violent and cruel industry.
When MFA breaks an undercover investigation, we don't just cut and run. We make sure animal abusers are brought to justice. Our legal department works diligently with local law enforcement to make sure those who violate animal cruelty statutes are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. MFA’s legal team also works with lawmakers and advocates for stronger animal protection laws nationwide.
Large corporations have the power to change the lives of billions of animals with a single policy reform. Our corporate outreach department works with businesses large and small to help them adopt meaningful animal welfare reforms while inspiring them to see animals as much more than mere commodities.
People have the power to stand up to animal abuse every time they sit down to eat. MFA’s education department is on the ground and online, from festivals to Facebook, encouraging millions across the globe to leave animals off their plates and transition to a truly humane vegan diet.
