Animal Welfare Institute Logo

Since 1951, the Animal Welfare Institute has been dedicated to reducing animal suffering caused by people.

We seek better treatment of animals everywhere - in the laboratory, on the farm, in commerce, at home, and in the wild.

While AWI's mission is to alleviate suffering of nonhuman animals, the principle followed by AWI of compassion and nonviolence applies to human animals as well as nonhuman animals.

The Animal Welfare Institute (AWI) condemns violence directed against all living creatures. There are no exceptions.
