Our Work

We are Pioneers

We walk roads that haven’t been walked before. Why? Because we know all animals speak their own language. That we cannot understand, doesn’t mean we don’t have to listen. Devoted to the life of the individual, we are working hard to bridge gaps and enhance coexistence. From assessments and education to starting innovative research projects and ethical reviews: we work in the best interest of humans and non-human animals alike. 

We are guided by ethics

Humans and animals exist for their own reasons. Every individual was born to live and has the right to exist. However, humans and animals are not always treated accordingly. Many are denied the rights to decide about their own body, comfort, and lifespan. This has, for starters, serious psychological consequences. Animals don’t own anything except for their life. And still many people manage to steal it and turn it into suffering and agony. We are here to stand up for every individual. No matter how big, small, loved or unwanted. And yes, we are here to stay.
