Ending the Cage Age

An EU ban in sight

Read more

The European Commission has committed to tabling legislation to ban cages for farm animals.

This remarkable progress is the result of a 1.4 million-signature European Citizens' Initiative, led by Compassion, and it could benefit 300 million animals every year.

Practising vet, and TV regular, James Greenwood

Read more

James Greenwood is the resident vet on BBC 'Morning Live' and 'The Pets Factor'. Fascinated by nature from an early age, he has a menagerie of animals, including 21 sheep, five ducks, six hens, and one wayward goose!

James became a Compassion supporter several years ago, after he saw a social media post about our live exports campaign. He admires Compassion's "unique insight into global farming" but also believes we can all individually make a difference for farm animals.

An inhumane innovation

Compassion is driving forward the campaign to protect octopuses from needless suffering and cruelty.

Our new report sets out the clear case why these intelligent, solitary, fragile creatures must not be intensively farmed.

Protecting Parmesan Cows

Protecting Parmesan Cows

These animals deserve better

Read more

Over 90,000 people have taken action, calling on the Parmesan Consortium to give all cows access to pasture and ban the cruel practice of tethering.

Since a shocking Compassion investigation in 2017, the Consortium has taken some steps to improve animal welfare. But they must do more – the cows can't wait any longer.

Onwards and upwards

Remembering Rosemary Marshall

Read more

In 1988, Rosemary Marshall picked up a Compassion leaflet at a conference. Decades of campaigning followed, and she became a Trustee of the organisation in 2003.

Rosemary achieved so much to end animal suffering in her lifetime and, when she sadly passed away in 2019, she continued to make a difference for farmed animals through a generous gift in her Will.

Rosemary went forward with positivity, even in the face of adversity. That makes her such an inspiring character, especially now. To use her catchphrase, we will continue "onwards and upwards" in the fight against factory farming.

We took your message to COP26

Read more

Thanks to generous donations, Compassion took the 'eat less and better' message right to the heart of COP26, the UN Climate Summit.

We released newspaper adverts, staged a press conference, and welcomed a constant stream of delegates to our stand in the summit's central 'Blue Zone'.

Our demand to policy makers: for the sake of animal welfare, people and planet, we must reduce the number of animals farmed and raise those that remain in a humane, sustainable way.

Thank you for achieving remarkable victories for animals

The past year has been extraordinary for Compassion and the billions of farm animals around the world who you fight to protect.

Together we have continued to navigate our way through the COVID-19 pandemic, whilst never taking our eyes off our mission: ending factory farming, for the sake of animals, people and the planet.

Because you never give up and you never give in, I'm confident that the future will be a kinder place for farmed animals.

In the most challenging of circumstances, thank you for changing the world.

Global CEO, Compassion in World Farming International
