Help Feed Stray Animals.


Not so Fun Fact: 10 billion is a lot huh? Try to imagine….

Every year, 10 billion domesticated land animals are slaughtered for food in the United States—27 million each day and 19,000 every minute. We should be down right ASHAMED.


This CAN all be changed

10 Billion, 27 Million, and 19,000:

Every year, 10 billion domesticated land animals are slaughtered for food in the United States—27 million each day and 19,000 every minute.

50 Billion and 1,680:

Worldwide, the yearly slaughter count is more than 50 billion. Every second, 1,680 animals are killed for food.
Most farmed animals are killed when they are barely adolescents or even younger, such as the “broiler” chickens raised for meat who are slaughtered at only 6–7 weeks old.

250 Million Chicks:

The U.S. egg industry suffocates, gases, or grinds up alive 250 million male chicks each year; they are not profitable because they will never produce eggs and are not bred to grow at an unnatural speed like broiler chickens.

5.5 Million Calves:

The 4.5 million calves in Europe and 1 million calves in the United States annually destined to become veal are forcibly pulled away from their mothers—dairy cows—within hours, or at most 1–2 days, of birth. The milk produced naturally by the mother’s body for her calf, who normally would suckle for 6 to 12 months, is to be taken for sale to humans, so the calf is fed nutritionally deficient formula. His movement is severely restricted, to give his flesh the texture and color desired by human consumers.

90 Percent of Soybeans and 80 Percent of Corn:

More than 90 percent of soybean meal grown in the United States is used to feed animals being raised for human food; these animals also consume 80 percent of corn grown in the United States.

Maybe we should….open up our eyes perhaps??
