Eating animals? One way you can help them live better lives – speak up!

Sometimes giving up a cup of coffee from your favorite coffee shop and giving it to the animals is a loving gesture for yourself and for them. It doesn’t need to be much, because when a lot of us do little kindnesses that’s what changes the world for the better. Be kind to the animals and help them live better lives.

Beyond giving to animal non profits, what is the BEST way to help? Educate yourself about food, know where your food comes from, what’s in it and how it is manufactured. This is the most empowered way you can tell the agricultural manufacturers, by what you purchase, that you demand better choices and it will create better conditions for those who cannot speak for themselves, the animals that are eaten.

Agricultural corporations do not necessarily have your health and well-being in mind, caring for the environment may not be their concern and they daily create unnecessary cruelty and pain to animals. They are concerned with profit and dividends for stockholders.

In the email below it discusses cage free eggs (a step forward), but, even better is free range. Free range is how chickens were raised in the past, in the sunlight, out in the field scratching, clucking, moving around and enjoying their friends everyday.

Dear Tana,Imagine living your entire life in a space smaller than a sheet of notebook paper.That is the reality for hundreds of millions of factory farmed hens. Studies show that hens are able to feel pain, fear and frustration – so they are aware of living in these brutal conditions.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
Help the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) stop the suffering of hens, chickens, cows, pigs, and other animals around the world. Please make a gift now.Billions of factory farmed animals live miserable lives with intense and prolonged suffering.A mother pig is separated from her piglets the minute they are born. She is restrained behind bars her whole life in a stall so narrow she can’t turn around.Cows in the dairy industry spend their lives in a constant cycle of impregnation, birth, and milking with just a few short months of rest between pregnancies, resulting in a variety of health problems.

Around the world, WSPA is working with farmers, businesses, local governments and consumers to develop long-term alternative solutions to factory farming.

For all the animals who are suffering, there is no time to waste. Your support is what makes the difference in our fight to end animal cruelty around the world.

Please make a generous gift today. If the animals could speak, I know they would thank you for your generosity and compassion – and so do I.

Sincerely,
Anne Lieberman
Executive Director, WSPA USA
Nobel Prize winning scientist Dr. Konrad Lorenz has stated:
“The worst torture to which a battery hen is exposed is the inability to retire somewhere for the laying act. For the person who knows something about animals, it is truly heart rending to watch how a [battery] hen tries again and again to crawl beneath her fellow cage mates to search in vain for cover.”You have the power to
change the way farm
animals are treated. Make a
gift to WSPA today and help
us fight animal cruelty.

P.S. Here in North America, WSPA has launched the “Choose Cage-Free” campaign to work with farmers and businesses to transition to cage-free practices and encourage the public to buy and eat only eggs produced by cage-free hens. Your gift today supports this and other programs that are making a real difference in the lives of animals.
