Cause area: Improving animal welfare
The Humane League exists to end the abuse of animals raised for food. It does this by influencing the policies of the world’s biggest companies, demanding legislation, and empowering others to take action and leave animals off their plates.
According to The Humane League, 94% of all animals raised for food are on factory farms. This means that 130 billion farmed land animals suffer every day.
The Humane League works relentlessly to end the abuse of animals raised for food through institutional and individual change. Specifically, THL:
