Did you know that ‘farmed’ animals — like pigs, hens and chickens — aren’t shielded from cruelty by the same basic laws that protect the cats and dogs many of us share our homes, lives and hearts with?
When given the chance, these animals will befriend us, just like dogs and cats do. They have the capacity to show affection, to experience joy — but most importantly, they can also suffer. And suffer they do, by the millions, in barren factory farms where they’re treated as food-producing ‘machines’ rather than living, feeling beings.
Most of us are taught to think that ‘farmed’ animals are all the same — however the reality is that every animal is a unique individual. With the high walls of factory farms hiding these animals from public view, the daily cruelties inflicted upon them are kept secret.
