Making a Better World For Animals

We focus our activities in the following areas:


Exposing cruelty in factory farms


Promoting legislation to protect animals

Challenge 22

Nurturing compassion in younger generations

Grassroots Activity

Raising public awareness about the reality of animals

Our Achievements

Ban on Force-Feeding Ducks and Geese in Israel

We got the Israeli Supreme Court to rule that the force-feeding of ducks and geese violates the Animal Protection Act, and the entire industry was shut down.


We Put an End to Animal Circuses

We led a public campaign which brought about a ban on circuses using wild animals from entering Israel. In certain city jurisdictions all shows that involve animals of any kind were banned.

We Put an End to the Fur Trade in the Israeli Fashion Industry

For years we have promoted legislation to stop the fur trade. Thanks to the fight we led, the Ministry of Environmental Protection has approved an amendment to wildlife protection regulations - banning wildlife fur trade in the fashion industry.

No More Experiments on Animals in Schools

Our petitions, protests, letters and persistent action led the Ministry of Education to ban animal dissection in biology classes.

Bans on Animal Abuse in the Meat Industry

Prohibiting veal crates, limiting confinement of sows in gestation crates, preventing dehorning of cows without anesthesia, and more.
