ANIMALS KILLED FOR MEAT


Cows, pigs, chickens, fish and other animals raised for food have little legal protection from cruelty. Although they are individuals who are capable of thinking and feeling, and who want to enjoy their lives, they linger in misery on factory farms all around the world.

BEYOND THE CRUELTY


The meat industry also has devastating effects on our planet and takes a toll on our health.
