Information about the unnatural situation of many animals

The conditions that determine animal welfare

This page provides a comprehensive overview of topics addressed on Animal Freedom (since 2002). We distinguish between information and opinion. It is our opinion that animals have fundamental rights, and we provide information on where these rights are violated.
The site contains hundreds of articles and also links to articles on other sites. For current photos and professional videos, we mainly refer to other sites.

Extreme abuses such as battery cages, unanesthetized castration, and veal crates are now banned in our country, but not yet gone. Animals in intensive livestock farming still live trapped in too small spaces. Because there is (a lot of) money to be made, especially through import and export to and from abroad. Rules are tightened, leading to political games about (reversal of) cause and effect, unfortunately, the mentality of people who use animals is changing slowly.
