crammed into cages no bigger than their bodies, mistreated by abusers, left to
suffer from untreated injuries and disease, or sent to an agonizing death
because they were not properly stunned on a speedy slaughter line.

unsafe working conditions and outright cruelty at a multitude of meat, dairy and

than implement better business practices, industry is going state by state,
introducing ag-gag bills that would hide inhumane, potentially hazardous
conditions on factory farms. It would only seem fair that companies engaged in
cruel or unsafe behavior face the scrutiny of the public, but big meat producers
are paying lobbyists to make sure that doesn't happen.
industry's audacity doesn't end there. The New York Times recently revealed that
your tax dollars are going to fund animal research centers that specialize in
boosting Big Ag's bottom line. At one of these federally-funded facilities,
thousands of animals were allowed to starve to death, pigs were locked in steam
chambers until they perished, and newborn lambs were left to freeze, be taken by
predators, or get battered to death by hail: All this to see if already-abused
animals can be made more profitable.
the past few weeks alone, The HSUS has fought against ag-gag bills in six states
and worked with members of Congress to introduce The Animal Welfare in
Agricultural Research Endeavors (AWARE) Act, which would protect animals used in
agricultural experiments at federal facilities. Our fight is far from over
though. We'll be up against even more challenges in the coming months -- and we
need your help to win these battles. Keep us on the offensive by making an emergency gift
to you, we've been able to bring some of factory farming's darkest cruelties to
light. Your support has allowed us to uncover the extreme confinement of pigs
and feeding of piglets to their mothers at Iron Maiden Hog Farm in Kentucky, the
abuse of animals by workers at Wyoming Premium Farms, which lead to criminal
convictions, and the shocking mistreatment of downer cattle used in our nation's
school lunch program, which resulted in the largest meat recall in U.S.
we need to keep working to ensure that animal welfare and consumer safety don’t
fall by the wayside. That's why I'm calling on you to show your support
today. Together, we'll confront corporations that abuse animals on
factory farms, people who mistreat dogs in puppy mills, those who club baby
seals to death in the name of fashion and all others who benefit from the
inhumane treatment of animals.
you for your support and compassion.
