Our Mission Is To Connect Animal Supporters 🐠

To make a difference, we must overcome disconnection.

There are millions of people who care about farmed animals. People all over the world have learned about the horrors of factory farming, the immense animal suffering that humans cause, and the solution—ending factory farming.

But most of these people are disconnected. That's what Connect For Animals is going to change.

We Believe: Connection Leads to Impact for Animals 🐮

It's good for us—and it can help the animals.

Steps to making an impact: connection, learning, and impact

Connection → Learning & Education → Impact for Animals

That's what we believe, at least, and there's good evidence to support that. Not only is connection what we need as humans, but it can help us create a huge amount of impact for animals. Connection fulfills our needs, and it also opens up the door for advocacy opportunities.

When you care about farmed animals and see how terrible factory farming is, this is a deep ethical value. It can be isolating to not know others who share these same beliefs—and it's empowering and fulfilling to make those connections.

FAQs 🦃

This is how we're going to connect the movement for animals.

What is Connect For Animals in a nutshell?

Imagine Meetup.com + a friend-finder app like Bumble BFF + LinkedIn, but specifically for people who care about helping farmed animals.

You can find people and events based on your PERSONAL interests (hiking, painting, etc.), your IMPACT interests (legal advocacy, public education, etc.), or other pieces of your life that are important to you (like being a parent, or being new in town).

We believe in connecting everyone who wants a better world for animals.

Why not just use Meetup or Facebook?

Frankly, platforms like Meetup and Facebook haven't met the connection needs of people who care about farmed animals. You join a Facebook group only to find that it's just a bunch of people arguing with each other in the comments—that's not what you wanted. Connect For Animals can help you find and connect with people in real life by showing you what you have in common.

It's also valuable to get our community onto a single platform where we can find each other. Sometimes you just want to grab a coffee or go on a hike with someone who cares about animals. Connect For Animals makes that a snap.

Is this a vegans-only app?

Nope! The only requirement is that you want to help end factory farming and bring about a world where the interests of animals are considered.

We think that being vegan is a rad way to reduce your personal contribution to animal suffering, and we fully encourage it. (And all events on the platform must be plant-based food only.)

We want to end factory farming and animal exploitation GLOBALLY, and that is going to take all the help we can get. We don't think that shaming supportive individuals in our community is going to help us get there.
