Our open rescues are seen by millions and force the issue of animal rights into the public consciousness.

Activists in Spain entered a massive egg farm supplying Mercadona, the largest grocery story chain in Spain. The activists were able to save 39 chickens who were living in extreme confinement and received positive press attention highlighting the inhumane reality of "cage free" eggs.
As part of the 2019 Animal Liberation Conference, over 600 activists took part in a daylight rescue of 32 ducks at Reichardt Duck Farm near Petaluma, California. Despite providing extensive evidence of animal cruelty at this farm to authorities in the county, the government took no action to help the ducks. Faced with no alternative, the activists entered the farm to disable the slaughter line and chain themselves to the entrance. In addition to saving 32 lives, 79 activists were arrested and the slaughterhouse was shut down for the day.
