Everybody, save the animals!
Imagine that your forced to spend your entire lifein a room the size of a sheet of paper. It sounds horrible, miserable, and inumane. Well, this is the life forced upon over 50 billion, you heard me, 50 billion, chickens. Want to know where your eggs come from? They come from abused chickens. They come from chickens who are forced to lay a lot of eggs. They came from chickens who are made to lay in unhumane conditions their entire lives.
I am not saying that you should stop eating eggs, but and I, @willowflight, want you to know, ANIMALS ARE BEING ABUSED. The meat you eat, for ex: cow, beef, the cow didn't die happy. The cow most likely didn't die happy anyway. They died POORLY.
Have you ever seen an Image of factory chicken? I, Novakitty, have, let me describe it to you: Hundreds of chickens, in rows packed side to side so tight that they can't move. These are called battery cages. Eating food off of a conveyor belt and drinking out of a hamster bottle. These poor chickens are forced into this life as soon as they can lay. Can you guess how long a chickens prime laying time is? One year. Can you guess how long the average chickens life time is? Six. Chickens in factories spend their short life in a cage the size of a sheet of paper, then are all slaughtered 1/6 of the way through their life. They are even forced to eat hormones that make them lay more eggs. Well, it's in their feed (That statement is from Willowflight)
Ways to help:
Become a vegan, unless you know where your meat came from
If you still want to eat meat, just remember, the animal made a sacrifice so you can eat their meat.
You don't have to become a veg. But just keep in mind where your food may most likely come from.
Did you know that every year in America it’s estimated that 2.11 million puppies are sold that originated from puppy mills while 3 million are killed in shelters because the shelter is too full and there are not enough adoptive homes? You might be surprised to hear that puppies in mills are commonly found with injuries, diseases, and sicknesses. It also might surprise you that many innocent puppies in puppy mills are killed. Another fact about puppy mills is most cages in puppy mills barely provide enough room for the puppy to turn around. Puppy mills should be against the law in the USA. Puppies in mills are often found in bad conditions. In the book No Shelter Here the author, Rob Laidlaw clearly states, “With little or no veterinary care, injuries, diseases, or parasites may be left untreated.” (Laidlaw 14)This quote shows that puppies in mills are often sick or injured. In 11 Facts About Puppy Mills it says, “Puppies in mills are often found with feet falling through the wire cages, bleeding or swollen paws, ear infections, or dehydration.” (DoSomething.org 2) This supports my reason because it shows that puppies in mills do not get the care that they need. The author of Last Chance For Animals clearly states “The hind leg of a dog was eaten off by another dog. The dog lay for two days without medical care, even though the puppy mill worker was aware of its condition. The puppy died two days later.” (DoSomething.org 2) This supports my reason because it shows that puppies are being treated unfairly. That is why we need to stop puppy mills. Unwanted puppies and female breeding dogs are often killed. In 11 Facts About Puppy Mills, the author clearly states, “After a few years female breeding dogs are physically depleted to the point where they can no longer reproduce, and are often killed.” (DoSomething.org 1)This quote shows that female breeding dogs needs are not being respected. Also from 11 Facts About Puppy Mills the author clearly states “Female breeding dogs are being bred at every moment with little or no recovery time in between.” (DoSomething.org 1)This quote shows that female breeding dogs are being treated unfairly. The author of Last Chance For Animals clearly states, some puppies in mills do not know how to eat and die of starvation. (LCA 1)This proves that the dogs in puppy mills are not getting the care that they need. This is why we need to stop puppy mills. Most puppy mill cages barely provide enough room to turn around. This shows that puppys in mills are being treated unfairly. The author of No Shelter Here says “When puppies are kept apart they may never The author of No Shelter Here clearly states, “Dogs in mills may be kept in rows of small, dirty cages.” (Laidlaw 14) This shows that puppy in mills do not get the space that they need. From No Shelter Here , it says “When puppies are kept in small cages they may never get a chance to properly develop.”(Laidlaw 14) also, puppies may never get a chance to socialize with each other. (Laidlaw 14) This shows that puppy are not being treated fairly at all. This is why we NEED to stop puppy mills.
