One donation, double the impact ✊

Our voice for the animals is more important than ever. Until the end of December, every donation to Sentience will be doubled. For you, this means: one donation, double the impact! Help us to maximize our impact for the interests of non-human animals in the future.

Double your donation now.

The results of the federal elections represent a massive step backwards for the political representation of animals. Setting the political course will be even more difficult in the future. We are therefore all the more pleased that we were once again able to successfully campaign for the interests of non-human animals on various fronts this year:

  1. Over 11,000 people signed our «RRRevolution!» petition, calling for a change of course in Swiss agriculture.
  2. Our Protein Lab brought together important stakeholders from politics and industry who jointly committed to a protein transition in Switzerland.
  3. Last month, we met with Coop and Lidl and presented them with our catalogue of demands «Animal welfare NOW!».
  4. Behind the scenes, we have been working on building a strong alliance for animals.

Next year, we celebrate our tenth anniversary. For this, we have planned a very special campaign. Under the title «Invisible Animals», we want to make visible the suffering of those animals that have no political lobby at all: Pigeons, rats, bees and fish. Because all animals deserve a life with dignity.

As an organisation financed solely by donations, we are dependent on your support so that we can continue to stand up for the interests of non-human animals with full commitment in the future. In December, all donations up to a total amount of CHF 40,000 will be doubled. For you, this means: one donation, double the impact!
