The Animal Welfare Institute (AWI) promotes the humane treatment of animals through engagement with policy-makers, enforcement authorities, and the public. AWI has programs that focus on farmed animals, animals in research, terrestrial wildlife, marine life, and companion animals. They see cruelty against farmed animals as one of the most crucial issues to address and are working to improve conditions for these animals on the farm, in transport, and at slaughter.
