Ever since the passage of Chicago’s historic foie gras ban in 2006, the foie gras lobby has been using every trick in the book trying to overturn it. We need every animal protection advocate in the U.S. to speak up and voice support for Chicago’s humane law. Click here to find out how you can help!

But a closer look at the animals revealed they were all around eight weeks old, their ages coinciding with the annual influx into shelters of abandoned baby animals purchased around Easter. Now, the lucky ducks and chickens are living at Farm Sanctuary’s New York Shelter and are seeking placement into loving homes as part of our Farm Animal Adoption Network. Read more.

Farm Sanctuary is the nation’s leading farm animal protection organization. Since incorporating in 1986, we have worked to expose and stop cruel practices of the “food animal” industry through research and investigations, legal and legislative actions, public awareness projects, youth education, and direct rescue and refuge efforts. Our shelters in Watkins Glen, NY and Orland, CA provide lifelong care for hundreds of rescued animals, who have become ambassadors for farm animals everywhere by educating visitors about the realities of factory farming.
