Investigators close their fists tightly, clinging to the camera with hope that you too will know the world animals face inside factory farms: a world full of cages, walls, pain and death. Investigators are the window to a dark secret that must urgently be exposed, only then will we be able to change it.

Witnessing the reality farmed animals face from behind a camera undoubtedly takes a toll on the hearts of investigators. I too have felt that feeling of uneasiness when I am inside a slaughterhouse or a farm.

It’s a feeling of devastation knowing that I am looking into the eyes of an animal who is suffering.

But I believe that documenting their reality is also a route of infinite possibilities for these animals.

Investigators close their fists tightly, clinging to the camera with hope that you too will know the world animals face inside factory farms: a world full of cages, walls, pain and death.

Investigators are the window to a dark secret that must urgently be exposed, only then will we be able to change it.

I’m writing you because you can help expose this cruelty by making a donation to Animal Equality and supporting our investigations.

Animals on farms desperately need your help.

When I first saw the eyes of a pig waiting to die in a slaughterhouse, I could see and feel the terror in his eyes. He stared at me begging for help that I could not give him. It was in that moment that I knew how important it was for the world to bear witness with me.

Since then I have transformed rage and pain into strength and conviction so that everyone can see what I have seen, and the cry of that pig is no longer silenced.

I have vowed to stand in solidarity with all farmed animals and to be a compassionate voice that strives to free them.

And the results of this work speaks for itself. Only a few weeks ago a historic initiative was introduced in the Mexican Senate that would make it a crime to abuse farmed animals. That is the power of investigations.

Together, let’s show the world the infinite possibilities that Animal Equality’s investigators have portrayed. Please make a generous gift today and help us continue our investigations that expose this animal cruelty.

Stand with me, with Animal Equality, and with the animals.

Gracias de todo corazón [Thanks with all my heart]...
