Lady Freethinker: Nonprofit MediA for Animal Welfare & a Kinder World

At Lady Freethinker, saving animals is what we work for every day. We’re a 501(c)(3) nonprofit fighting animal exploitation and seeking justice for abused and neglected animals of all species— from the dogs and cats we call family to the billions of pigs, chickens and cows suffering on factory farms.

As a media organization combatting animal cruelty, we give a voice to those who cannot speak out for themselves, and work tirelessly to build a more compassionate world. Through undercover investigations, global and local petitions, news stories, and informative interviews, we are changing the way the world sees and treats animals for the better.

Strongest Animal Cruelty Sentence in Chilean History!

After a Lady Freethinker investigation into a cruel breeding facility and dogfighting operation in Chile, a judge issued the first-ever maximum animal cruelty sentence under new laws, the longest in Chilean history.

And for the first time, a Chilean judge barred an offender from ever having animals again.

This shows the power investigations and petitions have when it comes to saving animals.
