Why this matters

Since 1951 our mission has been reducing animal suffering caused by people. We seek better treatment of animals everywhere - in the laboratory, on the farm, at home, and in the wild. Through engagement with policymakers, scientists, industry, and the public, AWI seeks to abolish factory farms, support high-welfare family farms, and achieve humane slaughter for animals raised for food; improve the housing and handling of animals in research, and encourage the development and implementation of alternatives to experimentation on live animals; end the use of steel-jaw leghold traps and reform other brutal methods of capturing and killing wildlife; preserve species threatened with extinction, and protect wildlife from harmful exploitation and destruction of critical habitat; protect companion animals from cruelty and violence, including appalling conditions in commercial trade; and prevent injury and death of animals caused by harsh transport conditions.
