In Defense of Animals

In Defense of Animals doesn’t just rescue animals — they fight for animal rights! In Defense of Animals saves and protects victims of the dog and cat meat trade, trophy hunting, zoos, factory farms, animal experiments, wild horse roundups, and many more. Annually they treat thousands of animals at sanctuaries and rescue facilities in India, South Korea, and rural Mississippi. In Defense of Animals has freed chimpanzees from labs, elephants from zoos, dolphins from aquariums, and spared wild animals from the fur industry. They fight apathy, build empathy, and inspire action to end all forms of animal exploitation and abuse worldwide.
