THE STORY:

The consolidation of farms in recent years has radically altered the face of farming. Today more animals are being raised on less land, with profound effects on the animals, rural communities, and the environment. This shift in farming has been termed "industrial agriculture" or "factory farming," as thousands, or even hundreds of thousands of animals are crowded into huge buildings, with no access to the outdoors. These animals may spend their entire lives on slatted floors, under which their manure collects until it is pumped into football-field-sized lagoons.

The problems with factory farming are numerous. Animals have no outlet for natural behaviors—in some cases, they're not even allowed to turn around. They are separated from their mothers at only a day or two old, are subjected to painful procedures without anesthesia, and may be undernourished or overfed. To control disease, industrial farmers feed antibiotics to the animals, resulting in the growth of disease-resistant bacteria that are harder to treat in both animals and humans.
A crucial component of humane enforcement work is the ability to seize and shelter abused and abandoned farm animals during cruelty investigations and prosecution efforts. Unless a shelter facility is available for the abused animals, local law enforcement agencies are often unable to confiscate the animals.
Farm animals are counting on us to be there in their time of need.
Donations to FARM ANIMAL PROTECTION enable us to respond to suffering farm animals immediately when we receive cruelty reports, and provide immediate medical care and shelter for them. Your contribution to the FARM ANIMAL PROTECTION is greatly appreciated, and will directly save lives and end suffering.
