We are igniting a compassionate movement against animal abuse.

LFT is working to expose and stop animal cruelty through investigative reporting and other media, citizen petitions, and partnerships with rescuers and activists on the ground worldwide. We believe that by changing the norms and policies that allow cruelty, we can end human-caused suffering of all species — from the dogs and cats we call family to the billions of pigs, chickens and cows suffering on factory farms, to the human animals who need our help. We believe that creating systems that protect us all, regardless of species, is the key to building a free and compassionate world for generations to come.
