All about ANIMALS 24-7:
ANIMALS 24-7 is a nonprofit independent online investigative newspaper and information service reporting about humane work worldwide. Our journalistic creed is to “Comfort the afflicted, afflict the comfortable, print the news, and raise hell.”
ANIMALS 24-7 reports about zoonotic diseases shared among animals and humans. For example, see our extensive coverage of issues associated with COVID-19, rabies, African swine fever, avian influenzas, and Newcastle disease. (Use our search engine to find coverage by disease name.)
ANIMALS 24-7 is especially noted for our in-depth coverage of attacks by pit bulls, other dangerous dogs, and exotic pets such as big cats and snakes.
The ANIMALS 24-7 dangerous dog data library includes sub-menus on pit bull statistics, pit bulls & public safety, pit bulls & the humane community, voices of pit bull experience, pit bull liability, pit bull legislation, pit bull history & sociology, pit bull behavior, dogfighting, pit bull advocates, pit bulls abroad, bad dogs & minority communities, wolf hybrids, with additional sub-menus on Rottweilers, Dobermans, Presa Canarios, and Boerboels.
ANIMALS 24-7 also reports extensively about topics including:
• Progress toward adoption of vegan, vegetarian, and other plant-based diets;
• The development of plant-based alternatives to meat, dairy, and leather products;
• and the many global issues associated with raising cattle, pigs, poultry, farmed fish, and other livestock for human consumption. Examples are the effects of animal agriculture on hunger, climate change, pollution, water scarcity and human wellness.
ANIMALS 24-7 takes appreciative note of the many contributions to humane work and animal well-being made by Africans, Asians, and Americans of color. Our unique Black history & animals archive includes sub-menus on topics including Leadership, Institutional racism, the Ku Klux Klan, Pit bulls & the black community, Slavery & resistance, Environmental justice, African animal advocates, the Africa Network for Animal Welfare, and the Integration era.
ANIMALS 24-7 has no alignment or affiliation with any other entity. Our role is to inform people who care about animals and nature, from dogs, cats, horses, marine mammals, and endangered species, to feral animals, hunted species, and so-called nuisance wildlife. Our pages present breaking news, in-depth background, and the experienced perspective of our staff and our many guest commentators.
ANIMALS 24-7, in addition, does extensive ongoing statistical research of humane issues and crimes against animals, such as abuse and neglect. We have been doing this for longer, in greater depth and on a wider range of relevant topics, than anyone else in the animal rights, animal welfare, and compassionate conservation fields. (We also have sub-menus of cat-related coverage and on compassionate conservation topics, rotating on our home page.) Our staff experience with animal rescue, gathering related data, and reporting our findings dates back into the early 1960s.
ANIMALS 24-7 is incorporated to conduct activities which are exclusively charitable, literary and/or educational within the meaning of section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954, for the purpose of exposing the existence of cruelty to animals and educating the public of the need to prevent and eliminate such cruelty; and studying animal-related issues via research, surveys, and investigative reports.
