CRUELTY IS WIDESPREAD


It’s not only dogs and cats that are victims of animal cruelty. Day after day, billions of animals are suffering horrific realities on factory farms despite the fact that most people are against animal abuse. All over the world, it’s widely accepted that animals should be treated with kindness and compassion.

However, most people are unaware of the suffering that takes place inside factory farms. The food industry works hard to keep these animals’ stories a secret.

THE MEAT INDUSTRY


The meat industry is responsible for the worst forms of cruelty imaginable. Each tray of meat we see in the supermarket has a hidden story. Our team of investigators work to bring you the truth.

THE DAIRY INDUSTRY


Few consumers are aware of the cruel cycle of abuse that occurs within the dairy industry. Everything begins with this simple fact: for a mother to give milk, she must first give birth to a baby who is taken away from her.

THE EGG INDUSTRY


The vast majority of eggs that are sold on supermarket shelves come from chickens who live their entire lives caged on factory farms. The conditions they are forced to endure are simply inhumane.

THE FISHING INDUSTRY


Fish are the most consumed animals on the planet. They are also the least protected from cruelty. In fact, there are no laws that regulate their care. Whether they’re raised in industrial fishing operations or caught in the wild, they are treated with zero compassion.
