Help Us Slow Slaughterhouse


You Can Make a Difference

Facing pressure from the meat industry, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is taking steps to allow slaughterhouses to operate at faster and faster line speeds. This will result in increased incidences of improper stunning and rougher handling of animals by slaughterhouse employees.

Spare farmed animals this additional suffering – tell your elected officials: Stop the USDA from pulling a fast one!

Congress has given the USDA clear instructions to provide for the humane handling of animals at the slaughterhouse. Yet, by reducing federal oversight and eliminating caps on line speeds, the USDA has unlawfully put industry profits above its statutory obligations.
