ANIMAL is an animal rights advocacy organisation that conducts education, campaign, lobbying and legal efforts to establish the protection and the respect for the fundamental rights of animals within the moral, social and political framework of the Portuguese society.
ANIMAL believes that animals exist for their own reasons and have their intrinsic moral dignity which is absolutely incompatible with the use or abuse of animals for any human purpose.
Among all the other fields of animal protection on which it also works, ANIMAL campaigns for the absolute end of the use of animals in any kind of experiment and works to expose vivisection as a scientifically absurd and useless method, building its opposition to animal experimentation both on moral and scientific grounds.
Founded in 1994 in Portugal, ANIMAL is a nationwide high-profile organisation which also works on general EU animal protection issues.
