Animals Australia chosen as a ‘standout charity’ on world stage

For the first time, an Australian organisation has been selected as a "standout charity" by U.S.-based Animal Charity Evaluators.

LAST UPDATED: 21 May 2020

There are thousands of charities that work on behalf of animals all over the world. And there are literally billions of animals in need of representation. For donors, it can be a minefield. Through critical assessment, Animal Charity Evaluators' mission is to identify those organisations that are the most effective based on outcomes for animals for every dollar donated.

Animals Australia's groundbreaking factory farming public awareness campaign — Make it Possible — is reaching hearts and minds all over the world.

We are humbled to become the first Australian animal charity to be recognised on an international platform by Animal Charity Evaluators as a "standout charity", for our work on behalf of animals in Australia and abroad.

This charity evaluation recognises that although we may be based in Australia, our mission, our investigations, our reach and, ultimately, our impact for animals all extend globally.

Dozens of high profile Animals Australia investigations into the global live export trade have had profound outcomes for animals and elevated public awareness about the treatment of animals raised and killed for food.

We are proud to represent animals in Australasia and stand alongside some of our most esteemed international colleagues who represent animals in other parts of the globe. We'd also like to extend our respect and congratulations to Mercy for Animals, Animal Equality, the Humane League, the Humane Society of the United States, and all other groups who, united, are shaping a more compassionate future for animals.

We'd also like to thank you for supporting our efforts to create not only a kinder Australia, but a kinder world.

Please consider pledging an ongoing gift to help us continue our lifesaving work in 2020 and beyond.
