The mission of The Humane League, why we exist, is to reduce animal suffering by inspiring change at all levels. This sense of purpose drives every action in our unrelenting march forward for animals.
We work through an ever-expanding network of field offices across the country providing information and encouragement to help people make choices that will reduce animal suffering. This is made possible through our passionate community of committed volunteers and generous supporters.
Knowing that change is needed at all levels, we also advocate for reform at the corporate and institutional level through hard-hitting animal welfare campaigns targeting specific companies. From Starbucks to Philadelphia’s public school system to every major foodservice company, we achieve major victories that reduce meat consumption and spare millions of animals from a life of misery in cages.
We bring a pragmatic, objective approach in evaluating and testing everything we do to know what works best —the head to balance our heart for the greatest impact for animals.
That’s the purpose of Humane League Labs, where we carry out direct testing to improve our vegan advocacy and education efforts. This focus on effectiveness for money spent has earned us a Top Charity recommendation four years running from Animal Charity Evaluators.
Please, get involved. Attend an event. Spread the word. Support our work. The animals need us all. And all of us can help.
