The Albert Schweitzer Foundation advocates for animal rights and animal protection. We attribute great importance to the leverage effect: We try to use our limited budget effectively in order to make a difference for animals. We focus on farmed animals since factory farming is the greatest source of suffering and death for animals.

We use traditional animal welfare campaigns such as the abolition of battery cages as interim steps on the path towards more progressive topics. This method has proven successful in opening doors that otherwise may have remained closed.

These are currently our most important campaigns:

Ending beak searing
