Legacy for a Kinder World
Throughout our lives we experience so many different emotions — we feel pleasure and pain, joy and sorrow. We go through times of comfort and times of fear. Tragically for farmed animals, from the moment they are born to the moment they die, not of old age, but at our hand, they never know pleasure, joy and comfort; they only know pain, sorrow and fear. They exist for humans to make money from their suffering. They never get to experience the sun on their backs, or the grass under their feet. They only know cages and wires and artificial lighting, and only feel their own waste and concrete under their feet.
You can make a difference for these animals, not only in your lifetime, but through the legacy you leave behind. By leaving a gift to Animal Outlook in your will, you will ensure our life-saving work continues well into the future.
Your support will help fuel our undercover investigations, legal advocacy, corporate engagement and outreach. It is at the core of our mission to ensure every donation is spent as carefully and strategically as possible, for the benefit of the farmed animals who are depending on us.
