Lady Freethinker: A Nonprofit Working for Animal Welfare & a Kinder World
At Lady Freethinker, saving animals is what we work for every day. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit fighting animal exploitation. We seek justice for abused and neglected animals of all species— from the dogs and cats we call the family to the billions of pigs, chickens and cows suffering on factory farms.
As an 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.
Our new grant program is designed to provide lifesaving funds to small rescue groups for animals’ medical care. Whether you’re in a desperate situation and need urgent help or are planning on supporting animals you’d otherwise be unable to help, Lady Freethinker has you covered. For more information, visit our applications page.
Small rescue groups are counting on us more now than ever, and we need your help to make sure they have the tools necessary to save defenseless animals’ lives. Lady Freethinker’s Urgent Need Fund isn’t possible without your generous support. Make a donation today to provide funds to small rescues giving direct relief to suffering animals.
With over 15 million petition signatures, Lady Freethinker’s campaigns against animal abuse are making the world a safer place for our nonhuman companions. From saving animals in the global dog and cat meat trade to garnering the strongest animal cruelty sentence for dogfighting in Chilean history, our petitions create real, long-lasting change—all with the simple click of a button.

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.
