Corporations large and small have the power to improve the lives of millions of farmed animals with just one policy reform. Animal Equality’s corporate outreach department encourages businesses to implement meaningful animal protections that will significantly reduce the suffering of animals by ending some of the cruelest standard practices on factory farms and at the slaughterhouse.
cages for hens
Hens raised for eggs are among the most abused animals on the planet. All around the world hens face intense confinement. Most often they are kept in cages and denied the ability to live a natural life, often unable to even spread their wings.
Hens who live in caged systems face a variety of problems including osteoporosis and other bone problems, discomfort and lack of exercise, and strong physical and psychological stress. These reasons are why Animal Equality has focused its resources on working with companies to implement reforms that reduce animal suffering.
Improving the lives
Chickens are sociable creatures who like to forage, to be with their companions, to bathe in the sand, and to bask in the sun. Yet chickens raised for meat suffer in the greatest number of any land animal.
Chickens used for meat are crammed into huge sheds and bred to be ready for slaughter so quickly that their legs often cannot support the weight of their bodies. Their miserable lives are often cut short due to debilitating diseases, infection, and injuries.
Animal Equality works with global companies to implement policies that improve the lives of these sensitive animals.
