About Animal Welfare Institute

About AWI: The Animal Welfare Institute (AWI) is a nonprofit organization founded in 1951 whose mission is to alleviate the suffering caused to animals by people. We seek better treatment of animals everywhere—in the wild, in research, in agriculture, in commerce, and in our communities. AWI employs more than 30 staff and consultants located in our headquarters in Washington, DC, and remotely across the United States. AWI is program oriented—more than 90 percent of our budget goes to support our programs to protect terrestrial and marine wildlife, farmed animals, animals in research, and companion animals. We advance our mission through strategically crafted political and legal advocacy, educational programs, litigation, research, and engagement with industry, policymakers, scientists, and other NGOs. AWI is committed to fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion in our culture, policies, and practices.
