A Cause benefitting The Humane Society of the United States’ work to help farm animals
Help Farm Animals Across the Country originally benefited Vote YES for Farm Animals, a successful grassroots effort to pass California’s Prop 2, The Prevention of Farm Animal Cruelty Act.
On Election Day 2008, Prop 2 passed in a landslide, receiving more votes in its favor than any other citizen initiative in California’s history. It will improve the lives of nearly 20 million egg-laying hens, breeding pigs, and calves raised for veal in California—it was the biggest victory for farm animals in U.S. history!
But there’s still much to be done. U.S. factory farms across the country raise and kill about nine billion farm animals every year for food. They confine millions of animals in tiny cages where they barely move their entire lives. And they routinely subject them to terrible abuses before often-agonizing slaughter.
Thousands of people helped pass Prop 2, and 63.5% of California voters approved it. Now it’s time to use this momentum to help create corporate and legislative advancements that benefit farm animals—as well as promote a shift toward more meatless foods. Get involved today!
1. 1. All animals deserve protection from cruelty, including those raised for food. These animals can’t speak for themselves, and they need you.
2. 2. Factory farms abuse animals in ways that would shock any caring person.
3. 3. It’s easy to help create corporate policies and legislative advancements that help farm animals.
