The Hu­mane League

TagLast edit: 7 Apr 2021 10:34 UTC by Aaron Gertler

The Humane League (THL) is a nonprofit organization that works to improve animal welfare standards through corporate outreach, media outreach, and grassroots campaigns.


THL was founded in 2005 as a small grassroots organization to protest foie grass at local restaurants in Philadelphia. It has since refocused on ending all forms of abuse in animals raised for food. It currently operates in four countries in three different continents and is part of Open Wing Alliance, a global coalition of organizations working to eliminate battery cages around the world (The Humane League 2021).


Animal Charity Evaluators rates THL a “top charity”—one of the four organizations awarded their highest rating. ACE considers THL “an excellent giving opportunity because of their strong, cost-effective programs, their robust track record of strengthening the movement, and their healthy organizational culture.” (Animal Charity Evaluators 2020) THL has received over USD 20 million in grants from Open Philanthropy since 2016 (Open Philanthropy 2021).
