“If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime.”

We chose to partner with Heifer International because they share the same belief in this well-known philosophy.

While we may not be able to share our bacon with the entire world, we can at least roll up our sleeves and help communities in need. We teamed up with Heifer International to share our belief in sustainable farming practices in an effort to fight hunger and poverty through agriculture, education, and hard work.

Our challenge begins in our own backyard and stretches across the oceans. Whether it be parents in Nepal receiving a goat to provide milk and feed their families, or helping struggling farmers in rural Iowa improve productivity. Through community based work, Heifer International paves the way for the less fortunate to improve upon their situation and sow the seeds of progress.

We donate our time and a portion of the proceeds to Heifer International. We don’t just write checks, we get our hands dirty and do our part to help eradicate poverty and hunger through sustainable, value-based holistic community development.

At Animal Inc. we believe everybody deserves a chance to bring home the bacon.



Heifer International's mission is to work with communities to end world hunger and poverty and to care for the Earth.

They empower families to turn hunger and poverty into hope and prosperity – but their approach is about more than just giving them a handout. Heifer links communities and helps bring sustainable agriculture and commerce to areas with a long history of poverty. Their animals provide partners with both food and reliable income, as agricultural products such as milk, eggs and honey can be traded or sold at market.

When many families gain this new sustainable income, it brings new opportunities for building schools, creating agricultural cooperatives, forming community savings and funding small businesses.

Real change starts with you.
