In an ideal world, there would be no need for Farm Sanctuary. There would be no factory farms or stockyards, and cows, pigs, chickens, and other farm animals would not be abused. They would be free to laze in the breeze, bathe in the sun, scratch at the earth, and enjoy life.
Unfortunately, animals raised on today's industrialized farms are treated like unfeeling commodities, and their basic needs are completely ignored. They are crowded in factory farm warehouses, and confined so tightly that they cannot walk, turn around or lie down comfortably. Farm animals are de-beaked, de-toed, tail-docked, confined, crowded, neglected and denied the very basics of life: fresh air, wholesome food, room to move and, most importantly, freedom.
Farm Sanctuary works hard to stop this. They run compassionate/educational farms in NY and CA, they do animal rescues, and get critical information out to the world (the masses and policy-makers) about what's needed to stop inhumane farming factory practices.
Please help them continue to protect the animals in amazing ways. Every voice and every dollar counts.
