Mercy for Animals – Protecting Farmed Animals

Pigs, cows, chickens, and other animals raised at factory farms experience unimaginable cruelty — from inhumane living conditions to routine abuse and frequent torture. At such facilities cows are kicked, punched, and dragged by the neck; pigs tails are cut off and shocked with electric prongs in their eyes; and chickens are stabbed and stomped to death. Mercy for Animals works to raise awareness of such atrocities while heroically striving to create a community where all animals are treated with the compassion and respect they deserve. Through proactive consumer education initiatives, cruelty investigations, corporate outreach, and legal advocacy, the MFA serves as a voice for farmed animals, where they would otherwise have none. With cooperation from individuals, companies and governments, Mercy for Animals seeks to touch the lives of over a billion animals every year. And together, bring hope to suffering animals everywhere.
