Animals are sentient beings with their own rich, complex emotional and social lives. Like us, they feel joy and pain. And, like us, they want to be safe from harm and cruelty. Through science-based research, law and education, Voiceless lifts the veil of secrecy on legalised animal cruelty to protect animals from human-induced suffering.
