Description/Profile/About

Animals’ Angels Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) non profit organization incorporated in Maryland with full-time investigators working throughout the United States, Mexico, and Canada. Our focus is on fighting animal cruelty and improving conditions for horses, dogs and farm animals.
We work primarily in the field, trailing livestock trucks on highways, visiting feedlots and auctions, puppy mills, and slaughter plants.
Animals’ Angels teams are there with the animals every week, conducting hands-on research and investigations. We objectively report observations, document conditions, and expose animal cruelty.
We present our investigation results to auction and slaughter plant management to encourage positive change in the way farm animals are handled during transportation, at auction, and at slaughter. We also share our investigations and documentation of cruelty with law enforcement and government agencies to ensure that violators of animal protection laws are held responsible for their actions. In addition, we strive to raise awareness in the media and among the public to the serious issues affecting animals every day.

What would you do to change the world?

Animals'Angels would like to continue and increase our undercover investigations to expose the cruelty animals all over the country face every day and to ensure that the abusers are held accountable for their actions.

Animals Angels: Exposing the inhumane treatment of Dogs including practices at Puppy Mills, Low-end Dog Auctions and Flea Markets, and cruel euthanasia methods.

Among our extensive and important work at Animals Angels, we conduct undercover investigations at puppy mills, low-end dog auctions and flea markets,and we also work to ban the gas chamber as a method of euthanasia for shelter dogs across the country.
"It was in part thanks to our work that the notorious Farmerstown puppy mill auction in Ohio closed their doors for good."- Sonja Meadows

Puppy Mills: What you need to know:
The sad truth is that we live in a world where numerous facilities exist that directly or indirectly contribute to perpetuating animal abuse. Puppy mills are a perfect example. It is here that dogs are literally mass produced so that the breeders can rake in as much profit from the offspring as possible. Right now there are anywhere between 2,000 and 3,000 USDA-licensed breeders operating in the United States. Some of these operations can be so large that they contain 1,000 breeding dogs at the same time. What's not included in that figure is the number of unlicensed puppy mills that exist; the ones the USDA has not approved and does not know about.
Where do the puppies that come out of these mills end up? As quickly as five weeks after birth many are shipped off to pet shops while others are sold directly from the owner to buyers through the internet, newspaper ads, at swap meets, and at roadside auctions and open air flea markets.
Currently Missouri is the top puppy mill state in the country with other states following close behind. While the highest concentration of puppy mills is in the Midwest they have been spreading nationwide even as far as upstate New York and into the Great Lakes Region. The largest puppy broker in the country is believed to be Missouri's Hunte Corporation which ships approximately 80,000 puppies per year to pet stores nationwide.
Dog Auctions & Flea Markets: The last resource for disreputable breeders:
With the USDA now regulating the sale of puppies over the internet by commercial breeders, flea markets are one of the last unregulated marketplaces for puppy sellers to offload their “product” without interference from government agencies. Disreputable sellers have identified this niche and have been stepping up their presence at flea markets across the country to evade unwanted detection from authorities.
The puppy sellers at flea markets usually don't travel with the parents of the puppies. The buyer has very little information about the puppy and must trust what the seller tells them. The propensity to lie is unavoidable and unpunishable. This is why flea markets are the perfect sales venues for dealers who have something to hide and also why several states, including Louisiana, Nevada and Oklahoma, have instituted new laws that restrict selling pets at flea markets, at swap meets, along roadsides, or at similar public venues.
Imagine a small, squalid room with tiny wire crates stacked on top of each other all the way up to the ceiling. Now imagine those crates packed full of dogs standing in their own feces and urine. Just thinking about the smell makes my stomach churn! This is a sad reality for so many dogs. This is the life they know. They deserve so much better.
Despite the atrocious and unsanitary conditions, the female dogs are expected to somehow have puppies in these disgusting conditions, because more puppies mean more money. The maltreated females are bred fifteen to twenty times and have up to ten pups in a litter. The poor males have it no better. All in the name of profit.
Gas Chambers, immoral and inhumane dog euthanasia:
"We are working to ban the gas chambers as method of euthanasia for shelter dogs across the country. It is a very inhumane way to kill these poor animals and there are still at least three states that have shelters that actively use this method. (Utah, Wyoming and Nevada) 20 states have no ban, but no active chambers that we know of. However, that does not mean that they don’t exist somewhere in these states. Part of our work is to find and expose private shelters that still use gas, which is a difficult task since there are hundreds of private shelters that are under no obligation to disclose the use of a gas chamber.
"Gas chambers cannot provide a “good death” for any animal, since they may begin experiencing painful effects of the gas before losing consciousness. Many dogs and cats will suffer immense stress just by being placed in the dark, small, unfamiliar environment of a gas chamber, especially when being put in there together with other animals. Lots of them panic due to the smells, the sounds and the confined space. It also puts shelter workers at risk of being bitten and scratched when the animals try to fight them when being put into the chamber."- Sonja Meadows of Animals Angels

Our team works primarily in the field, documenting conditions for the animals at auctions, collecting stations, and slaughter plants. We closely cooperate with law enforcement agencies on a state and federal level and the evidence obtained during our investigations has brought countless animal abusers to justice.
Animals’ Angels teams are there with the animals every week, conducting hands-on research and investigations throughout the United States. We objectively report observations, document conditions, and expose animal cruelty and abuse. Whenever possible, our investigators provide comfort, food, and water to the animals we encounter and ensure that suffering animals receive veterinary care.
Our documented reports and video footage are provided to the news media as a public service to raise awareness. However, in an effort to create the much-needed change "on the spot," we also present our investigation results to auction and slaughter plant management to encourage positive improvements in the way farm animals are handled during transportation, at auction, and at slaughter.
In addition, we produced a series of training materials which we provide (along with our investigation results) to auction management as an educational tool for their employees to improve the conditions for farm animals going through the auction and to ensure proper procedures and protocols are followed in case of an emergency situation. We also developed a ground-breaking training program designed specifically for law enforcement.
Equally important, we share documentation of cruelty with all appropriate law enforcement agencies to ensure that violators of animal protection laws are being held responsible for their actions at all applicable levels.
"I was always an animal lover since I was a child; this developed into a passion of mine later on, and my background in International Law certainly has helped me pursue this work around the world where different laws and legal standards exist." -Sonja Meadows, Founder of Animals' Angels
"There has been much accomplished through our work, and we also know that it is a gradual process. The spreading of knowledge and the raising of awareness is our mission, both to the cruelty that has resulted in seeing animals only as commodities, as well as how these practices negatively affect us and our environment. I believe, and one can see by the dietary trends and the desire of people to have some awareness of their food sources, that the momentum is headed in the right direction."
"Among the things that everyday people can do, in addition to spreading information, and donating to this cause and causes like it, is making some commitment to purchasing and eating ethically produced foods. Certainly, in this era of mass production and mass consumption, as well as renewed interest in healthier eating, there is a great interest in being knowledgeable about our food sources."
"Beyond investigating, and exposing unethical and inhumane practices in factory farming, Animals' Angels actively investigates and reports on issues such as the very "underground" practice of horse slaughter and trade, long distance transport of animals, treatment of non-ambulatory animals, and puppy mills and dog auctions. We've had great responses of support and gratitude to our cause, and I've especially seen this on the issue of horse slaughter which, to many in America, is a very hidden industry. Horse owners have contacted us in shock when they found out that the horse they had to give up for various reasons was taken to slaughter and sold as meat in various countries around the world; saying "how is that possible, we don't slaughter and eat horses here, is that even legal?"
"While it would be extremely difficult to bring a case against our organization in court, as we do all of our investigations legally; there have certainly been instances where I've been harassed, followed, threatened, and have even encountered attempts of disgruntled parties to drive me off the road. There are big money interests who greatly financially benefit from extremely unethical practices, and exposing them can certainly be a dangerous job, though much has been and will continue to be accomplished, and as awareness grows our support grows."
