Do you know what many children learn from chick hatching projects?

Thousands of chicks are born in chick hatching projects in schools all over the country. The fate of too many baby birds seems of little concern to some teachers and administrators.

  • Do children realize that the babies are deprived of their mothers?
  • Do children learn to manage the water, food, light and temperature for every moment of every day of the birds’ lives?
  • How many children are forced to deal with dead and dying chicks?
  • What do our children learn when sick, injured or deformed chicks are killed...that being different is deadly?
  • Do children learn that animals are “things,” hardening their hearts to other living beings, thus denying their natural empathy?
  • Did you know that after the project is over:
  • Some chicks are sent home where people have no idea how to care for them?
  • Roosters are often mistaken for laying hens and are later destroyed?
  • Many of the chicks end up in pet stores as food for captive animals or they are sent to poultry markets and auctions?
  • Others die in school basements?

Teach our kids responsibility and compassion by implementing humane education projects!

Do you want to end this pain and suffering?

Treat ALL God’s creatures with compassion and dignity...ANIMALS ARE NOT TRINKETS

Visit or become one of our animal-friendly churches where people who love and honor animals are welcomed 

Help us end cruelty in places where people worship!

Throughout the ages, human beings have accepted killing, violence and violent behavior as just being a part of life. And organized religions have perpetuated and endorsed this kind of thinking, burying their collective head in the sand.

Churches talk about peace and love and compassion while we take pleasure in hunting animals, bull fights and cock fights, horse racing and fishing. In places of worship, people wear clothing made from the furs and skins of tortured animals.

And most importantly, our diets are based on violence toward and the deaths of billions of animals. And these kinds of meals are supported, endorsed and promoted by most religions.

We are urging people of faith to include all of God’s creatures in all programs, activities, sermons, events and fundraisers.

Mission and Purpose of

To promote through education the prevention of suffering and cruelty to any of God's creatures, human or otherwise, including, but not limited to their diet, their health and their living conditions.

To promote through education the elimination of the use of animals in biomedical research and testing, their use as food, or their use for any and all commercial purposes; and to protect the environment in which we all live, so that no living beings suffer from its destruction or pollution.

To support organizations that have similar goals of preventing any harm to any of God's creatures, human or otherwise, or to the environment.

To provide an internet archive of educational materials to assist both teachers and students in the furtherance of cruelty-free living.
