Non-profit dedicated to eliminating animal suffering.
Horses brutally butchered for sale abroad. Dogs and cats stolen for experimentation. Wildlife caught in brutal traps. Farm animals confined in coffin-like crates. Majestic whales slaughtered at sea. The Animal Welfare Institute (AWI) works around the world and on Capitol Hill to address these issues and other forms of animal suffering. Founded in 1951, our mission is to eliminate pain and fear inflicted on animals by humans.
Animal Welfare Approved audits and certifies family farms.
The Animal Welfare Approved (AWA) program audits and certifies family farms. Our farmers raise animals outdoors on pasture or range in accordance with the highest animal care requirements in the nation. AWA is a philosophy of respect that provides animals with the environment, housing and diet needed to engage in instinctive behaviors thereby promoting health and well-being. Look for this label on eggs, dairy and meat products.

“Trash to Treasure” Series *Recycling Creatively with L.T. "The Bicycle Fence" Written by Tom Noll * Illustrated by Brandon Fall ©2014Description
Little Tommy is not so little any more. He has outgrown his shoes, clothes and bicycle all in one summer! L.T. (as he is now called) longs for a brand new bike, but when his father builds him one from recycled junkyard parts, L.T. is embarrassed to ride it to school. Can he come up with a creative idea that not only gives him a good-as-new bike, but also provides a new fence for his yard… and helps save the planet in the process?This delightful first book in Tom Noll’s “Trash to Treasure” series, based on events from the author’s own childhood, will inspire young readers to reinvent, repurpose, recreate, reuse and recycle in ways that are both practical and fun.Tom Noll, Author
