OnlyAnimals is a foundation, registered in Italy, and subject to governmental supervision and control. It manages this platform and works as a social media nonprofit organization committed to help, defend and protect animals around the world. It was founded by Valter Nosenzo with the help of Luna, his dog.
OnlyAnimals wants to help build a world where animals have the right to live freely, without being killed or exploited by humans. We will fight until this happens! Everywhere, without compromise, with no interest other than to be the voice for animals. To achieve our mission, we need you and your help: we want to create a large and powerful global community of animal lovers who do not accept injustice towards animals anymore and who want to fight against animal abuse, killing and exploitation.
OnlyAnimals is a non-profit organization fighting for the rights, protection and defense of animals. OnlyAnimals manages an advocacy and fundraising platform.
OnlyAnimals was originally set up as an operational foundation entirely through the funds of its founder, who worked to define and implement the project from start to finish. To pay for ongoing maintenance platform costs and to further develop the site to become increasingly effective, the foundation managing this platform depends on donations from individuals, charities, foundations, and animal friendly corporations that share our mission. Your donation is essential in helping to create a large community of animal lovers around the world able to make a real impact.
Yes, OnlyAnimals is fully independent. In fact, being a foundation, OnlyAnimals has no shareholders and no investors (such as venture capitalists or corporations) who can exercise voting rights or influence its decisions, strategy or mission. Further, it is subject to stringent government control to verify that its activities do not deviate from its mission and that all the donations raised are used to achieve its mission. OnlyAnimals is fully independent from political parties and doctrines. The foundation profits must be fully reinvested into the organization or donated to help animals, either directly or through donations to other animal organizations. No dividends can be paid. The foundation cannot be sold. We believe that only a nonprofit organization can be fully believable and trustworthy to act in the interest of animals, be their powerful voice, and, ultimately, change the world.

Shouts are intended to provide news or help animals that are in urgent need or in danger (for example, a shelter dog at risk of being put down if not immediately adopted). Shouts can only be launched by the OnlyAnimals foundation. A Petition, in contrast, is designed to collect as many signatures as possible in order to influence the decision maker and to request a significant action that would positively affect a large number of animals.
OnlyAnimals’ Fights are broad advocacy causes related to topics including animal rights, fur bans, and putting a stop to practices such as vivisection, animal trade, animal hunting, the use of animals in zoos or circuses, and the killing of animals for religious or cultural traditions. Fights may also promote practices such as veganism or the establishment of a worldwide tribunal to apply for sanctions for crimes against animals. Fights are launched with the aim of raising awareness and calling for legislative and cultural changes. Fundraising Campaigns are linked to a specific project and aim to collect donations to help animals in need, for example to rescue them or pay for their food and veterinary expenses.
