Mercy For Animals

Mercy For Animals campaigns to reduce the suffering of animals in factory farms.

Pigs, cows, chickens, fish, and other farmed animals are smart and unique individuals just like the dogs and cats we share our homes with. But behind the closed doors of modern farms they endure brutal cruelty. Most spend their entire lives in dark, crowded, waste-filled sheds. Some are locked in cages so small they can barely turn around. Because many animal cruelty laws do not protect them, farmed animals are often beaten, mutilated, and painfully slaughtered.

MFA is on the frontlines fighting to protect farmed animals. From factory farms to corporate boardrooms, courts of justice to courts of public opinion, Mercy For Animals is there to speak up against cruelty and for compassion.

Together, we can expose and end this abuse. Join us in helping protect farmed animals by inspiring compassionate food choices and policies.


Make Your Next Birthday High Impact

Think about it: sacrifice an aesthetically-iffy sweater, an itchy nightgown, a “bored” game, your 7th pair of slipper socks, someone else’s idea of a “funny” read—all those gifts that juuuust missed the mark at your last birthday—and instead, save some lives.

Seem like a good trade? We think so!

So many of us have unwanted (not to mention environmentally wasteful) presents piling up in our homes from parties of years past. By participating in High-Impact Birthdays, you can bypass the clutter and receive the greater satisfaction of doing good.

Simply ask friends, family and colleagues to forgo pesky gifts to you and instead donate to a high-impact charity of your choice, thoroughly vetted by independent charity evaluators like The Life You Can Save, GiveWell, and Giving What We Can.

It’s a very low-time investment, high-impact way for an individual—or group—to raise hundreds or thousands of dollars for proven charities . Perfect for students or those who, while they may not have a lot of cash themselves, know or work with those who do.

So, join us—donate your next birthday, and you won’t be sorry. Do it alone or ask friends to help and make it a group effort. Promote the campaign all around. Then watch the donations come rolling in as you rack up the satisfaction of knowing that your special day has a made a difference in the lives of others.
