Take Action on the Farm Bill— Ask Senators for Vegetables, Not Veal

As the U.S. Senate nears a vote on its version of the Farm Bill, factory farming interests are lobbying hard to hold onto or reinstate unfair subsidies at the expense of animals, taxpayers and the environment. The Farm Bill will set agricultural policy for the next five years, so activists must take action today to stop the subsidization of cruelty. Tell your senators to say “no” to veal industry subsidies and support amendments from the FRESH Act— an alternative bill that eliminates excessive appropriations for factory farms and gives real assistance to produce growers.

From Meth Lab to Sanctuary, Jade and Indigo Enjoy Second Chance at Life

Confined in cages, the birds’ needs were disregarded, their health faltered, and, when they were no longer of any use to their “owners,” they were left to die. The scenario sounds sadly familiar to anyone well versed in the reality of industrialized egg farming, but the circumstances that brought Jade and Indigo to Farm Sanctuary are quite different—yet just as despicable. Rescued from a meth lab in northern California, the duo shares a traumatic past. But today they’re thriving at our California Shelter. Read more.

Happy & Humane Halloween

Nothing is more frightening than cruel candy made with gelatin (the skin, tissue or bones of animals) and “natural” coloring derived from insects or other animal sources. This year, give little goblins and ghouls Halloween treats to delight their taste buds, while protecting our animal friends. Many candies found on store shelves are conveniently vegan so feel free to indulge trick-or-treaters with these eerily tasty sweets.
