Last Chance for Animals is an international non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating animal exploitation through education, investigations, legislation and media attention.
Last Chance for Animals (LCA) was founded by actor and animal activist Chris DeRose in 1984 in an effort to expose and end the cruelty of animal research and vivisection. As the organization grew in the late 80's and early 90's, LCA expanded it's reach to work on virtually every animal rights issue including fur, factory farming, animals in entertainment, and pet theft for the purpose of animal research.
LCA believes that animals are sentient creatures who exist for their own reasons independent of their service to humans and therefore opposes the use of animals in food, clothing production, scientific experimentation, and entertainment. Instead, LCA promotes a cruelty-free lifestyle and the ascription of rights to non-human beings.
