Caring For Our Community - Greens In Action August 2022
Farm animal sanctuaries are safe havens for animals who have endured the victimization of factory farming. Visiting a sanctuary is an absolute must for anyone truly devoted to animal protection. The opportunity to meet a cow face-to-face or rub the belly of a pig is an incredibly moving experience. Very few animals trapped in factory farms and our food system ever experience freedom, but sanctuaries offer an island of kindness in this sea of cruelty.
Farmed animals are unprotected by most state criminal anti-cruelty laws and even omitted from the federal Animal Welfare Act. This law is rarely enforced, and the USDA claims it does not apply to birds. The Humane Methods of Livestock Slaughter Act is similarly limited.
