INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

In a perfect world, cows wouldn’t be consumed in the first place. During this lifetime, we must demand that animals killed for food be spared gratuitous pain and suffering. Israel’s Chief Rabbi has failed to uphold a promise to reject shackling and hoisting.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
