The international animal rights organisation ANIMALS' ANGELS was founded in 1998.
ANIMALS' ANGELS has established permanent ‘investigation teams' that regularly carry out on-site investigations into places where animals are held, including transport vehicles, slaughterhouses, ports, border control stations and livestock markets across Europe, Canada, the USA and Australia. The investigation results are documented in reports and supported by photos and video footage; these are then submitted to the relevant authorities in order to enforce legislation or to seek further protective legislative measures.  

ANIMALS' ANGELS long-term aim is the abolition of the long distance transportation of "farm"animals.

With our motto - "we are there with the animals" - always in mind, the day-to-day work of ANIMALS' ANGELS is based on the conviction that the cruel treatment of animals is contradictory to the perceived set of values of developed nations together with our own five basic ethical beliefs of compassion, commitment, confidence, cooperation and courage. Together, they have formed an essential part of the secret behind the effectiveness and success of ANIMALS' ANGELS.

Help to Stop the Long-Distance Live Animal Transport in the European Union

Today, huge numbers of farmed animals are transported under unacceptable conditions on European roads, only to be slaughtered on arrival. The long duration of such journeys often causes the animals intense and avoidable suffering, as has been consistently reported over the years by Animals’ Angels investigators. Current EU legislation makes it possible for animals to be transported for several days. This has to change. Live animals sent for slaughter should never be transported for more than eight hours in total. In November 2011, the European Commission published its report on the impact of Regulation 1/2005 on live animal transport. This report did not contain legislative proposals, nor it proposed that long-distance live transport should end. One million signatures will be a loud wake-up call to the European institutions, reminding them that citizens reject the additional suffering currently being inflicted on farmed animals. We already have over 960,000 signatures on the 8hours website, so we hope that supporters can contribute at least 30,000 signatures. If you want to sign the petition, you can either do so here (for everybody) or on the website (for Europeans only). Please note that duplicate signatures will be deleted. You can find further information about this campaign on the website. Thank you for your support.
