Place for Animals is a creative collective and soon-to-be non-profit formed by Matt Maraynes to improve the lives of nonhuman animals. As a consultancy, we develop content and communication strategies and provide production services to animal-oriented organizations in support of their missions. Place for Animals calls upon a diverse collective of thinkers and creators in support of the organization’s work.
Future plans include funding creative projects geared towards helping animals. These projects can take many shapes, including film, art, literature, popular non-fiction, and academic essays. Additionally, Place for Animals plans to fund and take part in direct animal action, including disaster relief, companion animal fostering, and activist events.
A long term goal defined by place for animals is to establish a working animal sanctuary. In addition to its fundamental purpose of serving rescued animals, the sanctuary site will serve as headquarters for the organization’s operations, as well as a site for noninvasive, welfare-oriented animal research.
