Join in Raising Awareness!
ANIMALS ARE NOT FREIGHT
GLOBAL DAY OF ACTION AUGUST 29th

The goal of this very important day is to draw people's attention to the cruelty inherent in the live transport of animals bound for slaughter. At Animals' Angels, we'll be sharing a variety of reports and information which will illustrate the suffering - the absolutely needless suffering - that these animals endure for 28 hours at a time. Please join us in our Facebook and Twitter campaign to raise awareness nationwide! 

Imagine with me for a moment, you are travelling on a bus and after hitting a bump; you lose your footing and fall. As you lay on the floor of the crowded bus, you feel a cold hard shoe step on your arm. You hear the crunch of your bones breaking and the high pitched scream of pain coming from your mouth. No one notices. No one helps. A second later those same cold hard shoes step your leg, stomach, and other arm. Again no one cares. You lay there, helpless, while slowly being trampled to death. And your journey lasts for 28 hours.
 
And worse... it's perfectly legal. It's true. U.S. laws allow trucks carrying live animals - horses, cows, goats, sheep, chickens - to travel for 28 hours at a time without having to provide the animals with food, water, or any kind of rest or respite whatsoever.

It isn't a pleasant thought, but the reality is that in the United States, while billions of animals are sold, traded, and transported, they are also subjected to horrific cruelty.  The story above is one that has been documented many times by Animals' Angels as farm animals and slaughter-bound horses are moved and transported from auctions to feedlots to slaughterhouses. These defenseless animals are exploited for money without any consideration for their health and well-being which leads to untold suffering.
 
Animals bound for slaughter deserve humane treatment!  Won't you help them today? We need to put a STOP to long distance transport. Together we make it happen.

Show your support for slaughter-bound animals by getting your ANIMALS ARE NOT FREIGHT WINDOW DECAL from Animals' Angels today!  For a small donation of just $10.00 you will receive a poignant image with the Animals Are Not Freight logo that can be displayed in the window of your vehicle, your office, or your home.
You can even share them with friends! 

Let's work TOGETHER to raise awareness  of the horrific suffering these helpless creatures endure in transport every day.  

TAKE ACTION!

Here are a few of the changes we're advocating on behalf of the animals and we hope you'll join us in our fight:
  • Limit the time animals can be transported to 8 hours.
  • Mandatory, easily accessible on-board waterers on all trucks involved in animal transport.
  • Limit the number of animals per transport to prevent overcrowding, suffering, and injuries.
  • Stringent enforcement of these regulations and other animal welfare laws.
  • Strict accountability for transport companies and owners/shippers.
  • Halt the transport of horses to slaughter altogether.
Animals' Angels is one of only a very few organizations in the U.S. that performs investigations into the transport of slaughter-bound horses and other farm animals. We've seen first-hand the absolute misery and horrific conditions that these animals -- thousands of them a day -- are forced to endure.


HELP END LONG DISTANCE TRANSPORT


But we need to do more. And YOU can help! Animals' Angels will continue to fight against these injustices. No matter how hard we fight though, we need your help to succeed!  Now is your chance to send our investigators where they are needed most -- on the road to document the transport of slaughter-bound horses and farm animals from auctions to feedlots and slaughterhouses -- all while raising awareness at the same time.
