Farm Animals
Caged hens

Protections for animals raised for food is more important than ever. Federal legislation is important to ensure that all animals raised for food are treated humanely with minimum standards of care.

American egg factory farms cram more than 90 percent of the country's 280 million egg-laying hens into barren cages so small the birds can't even spread their wings. Pigs, one of the smartest animals on Earth, are crammed into tiny "gestation crates" and are immobile and unable to move virtually their entire lives. We're working to pass legislation to end cruelty and suffering of animals raised for food.

TAKE ACTION

King's amendment (HR 4879) is one of the biggest threats to animals in Congress today and has the potential to gut animal welfare protections across the nation. Urge Congress to oppose this bad legislation today.
