Progress for Farm Animals

Dear Friend,

For too long, factory farms have remained hidden from public view, but all of that is quickly changing. In just the last year, The Humane Society of the United States has gone undercover and exposed inhumane treatment of animals at five of the largest factory farming companies in the country.

The agribusiness industry responded with bills in four states not to ban the type of rampant abuse we uncovered, but to ban our whistle-blowing investigations in the first place. I'm pleased to say that because of your support, your right to know what goes on behind the walls of factory farms and slaughter plants is intact.

Additionally, these animal factories cause massive air and water pollution, and cause unimaginable suffering for both the animals inside and the people outside in the community. The HSUS has been at the forefront of the fight against factory farms, and recently won a major federal court ruling declaring a notorious California egg factory farm a legal nuisance, and forcing the facility to pay the community more than $500,000 in damages.

There's so much happening in the world of farm animal protection -- such as the exciting new national agreement between The HSUS and the egg industry to pursue federal legislation to ban barren battery cages for hens. There’s also a growing national interest in reducing meat consumption. Be sure to keep up with farm animal protection news by "liking" The HSUS's new farm animal protection Facebook page. I can't thank you enough for all you're doing to provide farm animals with a voice.
