“We are there with the animals."
Animals’ Angels Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization incorporated in Maryland with full-time investigators working in the United States.
Our focus is on improving conditions for farm animals. We work primarily in the field, trailing livestock trucks on highways, visiting markets and auctions, collecting stations, and slaughterhouses. We closely cooperate with numerous enforcement agencies and others (local and state police, veterinarians, the United States Department of Agriculture, etc).
Animals’ Angels teams are there with the animals every week, conducting hands-on research and investigations throughout the United States. We objectively report observations, document conditions, and expose animal cruelty and abuse. Whenever possible, our investigators provide comfort, food, and water to the animals we encounter and ensure that suffering animals receive veterinary care.
Our documented reports and video footage are provided to the news media as a public service to raise awareness. However, in an effort to create the much needed change "on the spot," we also present our investigation results to auction and slaughter plant management to encourage positive improvements in the way farm animals are handled during transportation, at auction, and at slaughter.
In addition, we produced a series of training materials which we provide (along with our investigation results) to auction management as an educational tool for their employees in order to improve the conditions for farm animals going through the auction and to ensure proper procedures and protocols are followed in case of an emergency situation. We also developed a ground-breaking training program designed specifically for law enforcement.
Equally important, we share documentation of cruelty with all appropriate law enforcement agencies to ensure that violators of animal protection laws are being held responsible for their actions at all applicable levels.
