Project 1882 works globally to make a difference for the animals that are the most exploited and suffer the worst.
The forgotten, hidden and often nameless animals. We want our work for animals to have as much impact as possible. That is the driving reason why we want to dismantle factory farming. Project 1882 is entirely dependent on donations.
With effective campaigns and political advocacy, Project 1882 makes a difference globally for the animals that are the most exploited and suffer the worst. We have been a driving animal advocacy organization in Sweden and beyond since 1882, now with more than 50,000 members.
Project 1882 strives for a world where animals are respected as sentient beings with the right to their own lives.
Project 1882 works globally to make a difference for the animals that are the most exploited and suffer the worst. We have been doing this since 1882.
We provide information about animal welfare and bring citizens' opinions to those in power. We shape public opinion and influence legislation. We dismantle factory farming and advocate for the development of animal-free research methods. We inspire and enable consumers and companies to choose vegan options and make animal-friendly choices. With effective campaigns we engage the public, highlight animal welfare problems, present solutions and bring about concrete changes.
We strive for a world where animals are respected as sentient beings with the right to their own lives. Since animals suffer all over the world, we work both locally and globally to generate the most impactful positive changes for them possible.
Our clients are the chickens, hens, cows, pigs and other animals that need our help – we are here to give them a voice and defend their rights. That is the core of our project since 1882.
Right now, we are continuing our work to help the animals directly affected by the war, specifically supporting efforts to evacuate animals from the front line. It is an incredibly difficult but urgent task.
Project 1882 supports and coordinates various relief efforts on the ground by local groups of Ukrainian volunteers and veterinarians. In June alone, more than 100 animals, mainly dogs, were rescued from the disaster zone created by the destruction of the Kakhovka dam and the flooding of large areas of land.
Another goal for the future is to end the cage age for hens in Ukraine. Although Ukraine is not yet a member of the EU, there are obligations to implement EU animal welfare legislation. As animal rights advocates, we need to ensure that this becomes a reality so that Ukraine does not risk to become a haven for cruel factory farms that leave the EU to operate under poorer animal welfare rules.
