Cruelty on Your Plate
The horrors these animals face every day is unspeakable, their suffering unimaginable. If their lives were miserable, their deaths are a nightmare. Stunned, hung upside down, decapitated, boiled alive…all after witnessing others who have gone before them. The images and videos are truly heartbreaking.
Factory farms dominate U.S. food production, employing abusive practices that maximize agribusiness profits at the expense of the environment, our communities, animal welfare, and even our health.
Far from the idyllic, spacious pastures that are shown in advertisements for meat, milk, and eggs, factory farms typically consist of large numbers of animals being raised in extreme confinement. Animals on factory farms are regarded as commodities to be exploited for profit. They undergo painful mutilations and are bred to grow unnaturally fast and large for the purpose of maximizing meat, egg, and milk production for the food industry. Their bodies cannot support this growth, which results in debilitating and painful conditions and deformities.
Unfortunately, many people choose to look away or not subject themselves to these images. Others will look and choose to change their eating habits so they can no longer, by their food choices, contribute to such suffering. If you’ve read this far, you’ll likely interested enough to want to make that change. We’re here to help. Reach out for help, advice and guidance.
