Did you know that dairy cows suffer to produce milk, cheese, yogurt and ice cream?

Did you know that dairy cows suffer to produce milk, cheese, yogurt and ice cream?

Dairy cows are artificially inseminated. Their calves are taken from them at a day or two of age, leaving cows bellowing and grief stricken. Milk meant for calves is sold for human consumption.

To produce six times the normal amount of milk, cows are fed large doses of hormones. Several times a day their udders are attached to electronic milking machines that can cause lesions, electrical shocks. The hormones and machines can produce mastitis (swollen, painful, udders).

Most dairy cows spend their lives either standing in mud or on concrete floors, always surrounded by clouds of flies. Their only respite from the annoyance and bites is switching their tails which causes feces and mud to be sprayed on humans during milking. So, their tails are docked by various painful methods without any anesthetic.

When the mother’s milk is depleted she is again artificially inseminated and again suffers the grief of losing her calf. This cruel and debilitating process continues until her productivity declines when she is shipped to slaughter, her spent meat used for fast-food burgers. Diary cows live short miserable lives of two to five years, compared to a possible life span of 15 to 20.

On organic farms, antibiotics are used sparingly to maintain “drug-free” status, thus causing more suffering due to untreated injuries or illness. ALL dairy cows end up in the same slaughterhouses.

For the cows, end this abuse...GO VEGAN!

Treat ALL God’s creatures with compassion and dignity...

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.
