Animal Liberation Victoria (ALV) was founded over 35 years ago, with the mission of saving lives and ending animal exploitation. During this time ALV has always been, and always will be, a front-line organisation. They have spearheaded the fight for animal rights in the trenches. Their animal rescue teams, embracing the principle of non-violence, openly disobey unjust laws to rescue sick and injured animals, and document the horrific conditions suffered by literally billions of animals around the world. These ‘Open Rescues’ are based on the moral premise that it is wrong to knowingly let any individual, regardless of their species, be imprisoned, abused and killed for the profit of another.
