Animal Rights...Fighting for the Voiceless

Translate This Page


There is a myriad of horrific facts and statistics available on the issue of animal cruelty on the internet. But where do these statistics come from? What are their sources? When compiling information, there are various local, national and international organizations which actually carry out hands on research and investigations to provide accurate data and information about animal cruelty, welfare and safety issues. Some of them are government owned whilst others are non profit private entities.
Unfortunately there is no one stop shop organization which provides all the facts and figures. Getting relevant data may take some time to research. Here are a few sources for animal cruelty facts and statistics:

Animal Welfare Facts and Statistics:

•    World Organization for Animal Health – provides scientific reports on animal welfare, climate change, aquatic animal diseases, veterinary services, infectious diseases of wildlife and traceability of animal products.
•    US Government Accountability Office – reports on animal diseases, feed and drugs, husbandry and welfare including humane methods of handling and slaughter and the veterinarian workforce, dealers of random source dogs and cats, breeding, mad cow disease, foot and mouth disease and labeling.

Animal Farming Facts and Statistics:

•    Compassion in World Farming (CIWF) – a farm animal welfare charity which runs undercover investigations to expose illegal farming practices in Europe. The organization campaigns to end all cruel factory farming practices in a peaceful manner. CIWF provides detailed reports on animal health & disease, behavior & sentience, cattle, cloning, genetic engineering & reproductive technology, education, environment & sustainability, fish farming, food industry & consumers, human health, live transport & live export, mutilations, pig farming, policy & economics, slaughter and poultry: laying hens, ducks, geese & turkeys.
•    European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) – undertakes independent research and investigations on risks concerning the European food chain. As part of its remit, the authority also covers animal health and animal welfare (which indirectly affects food-borne diseases). This area is covered by the authority’s Panel on Animal Health and Welfare (AHAW), which provides scientific reports and advice to the European commission, European parliament and member states. Available publications include scientific reports and scientific opinions on dairy cows, pigs, fish and non-food producing animals.
•    Voiceless – independent non-profit Australian organization which offers publications and fact sheets on pig factories, battery hens, dairy cows, kangaroos, sentience and climate change.
