Call, Write & Email - Farm Animals
Animal factories will not exist if consumers demand that animals raised for food are treated as sentient beings with dignity and respect. Here are a few actions you can take to inform others about your concern for farm animals:
- Use customer comment cards to urge grocery stores and restaurants to provide products from animals raised according to high welfare standards.
- Help AWI investigate animal welfare claims on food labels. If you see a product that is labeled "Humanely Raised" snap a picture and send it to us, along with the name and location of the store selling the item.
- Contact your Members of Congress and request strong enforcement of the Humane Methods of Slaughter Act. Respectfully suggest that USDA inspectors work fulltime at each slaughter plant with the sole responsibility to observe the unloading, handling, stunning and killing of the animals. Visit AWI's Compassion Index to identify and contact your Members of Congress.
- Educate others about issues facing farm animals.
Check out our publications about Farm Animals, and share the publications with others.
