Animal Active is an activist, volunteer-based organisation that advocates for all animals with a strong focus on the rights of urban Australian native animals, in particular kangaroos, dingoes and possums.
Animal Active challenges the neglect, exploitation and abuse perpetrated on non-human animals through sustained campaigns and cruelty exposes.
Confrontational when necessary but always non-violent, we work through channels of direct action, investigation and rescue as well as finding pathways to effectively network with other animal advocacy organizations (locally, nationally and globally). Our aim is to build a world informed by awareness, compassion and respect towards human and non-human animals.
Animal Active’s vision is a future where divisive differences such as race, gender and species become invisible and the quality of sentience (that is, the capacity to suffer) is the only moral consideration in our treatment of other beings.
Animal Active is a not-for-profit, entirely volunteer-based organisation. We depend entirely on public donations and fundraising events to continue our work for animals.
