About the Organization

In order to promote pro-animal ideals and bring about long-lasting systemic change, Voiceless supports and finances influential individuals and initiatives. Animals can have fair and effective legal rights and thrive on their own terms. By upending the status quo and altering our social, political, legal, and institutional systems.

Voiceless invests in people and projects that are revolutionary, visionary, and question the current quo with the help of our advisers, board, coalitions, and partners, including eminent animal lawyers, scientists, and advocates. These include strategies that challenge prevailing anthropocentric viewpoints, aim to stop large-scale, legalized commercialized industries, and support the well-being of animals.

Voiceless, a pioneer in the field of animal protection with twenty years of expertise, delivers an annual Grants Program that will bring about significant and long-lasting change for animals based on best-practice models, philosophies, and procedures.

  • The Voiceless Grants Program aims to change the anti-animal ideals, presumptions, and assumptions that influence our political, social, legal, and economic institutions by concentrating solely on the causes of animal exploitation. We promote revolutionary, disruptive positions, creative projects, partners, and ideas that question the current quo, ensure animals have fair and effective legal rights, and realize our vision for a just and equitable where animals can flourish.
