Eyes on Animals is an animal-welfare organization based in The Netherlands. We strive to reduce as much farm-animal suffering as possible during transport and slaughter. We do not have any permanent staff in the office, and work almost solely on the ground. We send teams out regularly to check on animal trucks on the highway and visit slaughterhouses. We work throughout Europe, Turkey and Ghana and are made up of a small international group of dedicated and practical people.
ENFORCE: get the existing animal-welfare legislation better enforced by training law enforcers, like highway police.
EDUCATE: spread better practices by training chicken catchers, farm animal drivers and slaughterhouse workers on animal-behavior, intelligence and more humane handling techniques.
ENCOURAGE: shedding a positive light on companies that are trying hard to reduce animal suffering.
EXPOSE: expose animal suffering and shame the companies that cause it.
Our personal philosophy is that the world should move towards a more plant based agricultural system, in order to better guarantee no risk of animal abuse or suffering and also to better protect our planet.
But we know that such a world is not around the corner, this will take time. In the meanwhile we can still achieve a lot for animals by working directly with industry stakeholders and law enforcers.
