Anima International is an umbrella of European organizations focused on improving welfare standards for farm animals through corporate and media outreach, undercover investigations, and legislative work.


Anima International evolved as a collaboration between the Scandinavian vegan advocacy group Anima and the Polish investigations group Open Cages [Otwarte Klatki]. After working together for a number of years, the organizations formally merged in 2018.[1] As of 2022, Anima International operates in seven different European countries.[2]


Animal Charity Evaluators considers Anima International "an excellent giving opportunity due to their impactful programs and their strong track record of building the capacity of the movement in relatively neglected areas in Eastern Europe."[3] As of July 2022, Anima, Anima International, and Open Cages have received almost $9.4 million in funding from Open Philanthropy,[4] and nearly $190,000 from Effective Altruism Funds.[5][6][7][8]
