About Us

At Animal Welfare Media, we feel that a highly-shareable video is one of the most effective ways to fight for animal rights and the welfare of all living creatures.

AWM has produced numerous videos, short films and documentaries to support the critical work of some the most progressive animal organizations around the world.

The work we’ve done on behalf of animals has been viewed by millions – and has shown tangible results. From helping pass more humane animal legislation, to pressuring companies to be more animal-friendly, to raising awareness and donations for issues that matter most to animal groups, AWM is at the forefront of online digital content.
