Stop Senseless Slaughter of Millions of Animals at Factory Farms

Target: Sonny Perdue, Secretary, United States Department of Agriculture

Goal: Provide farms with subsidies to stem the gruesome mass murders of unprofitable animals.

As COVID-19 continues to rage, millions of animals who would otherwise have been slaughtered for sale in supermarkets have instead been brutally murdered as slaughterhouses close their doors. Chickens and pigs have been suffocated, drowned, frozen, and burned alive in order to eliminate large numbers of living beings seen as unprofitable by industrial farming corporations.

These animals are capable of forming complex social relationships and ought to live comfortably and happily. Instead, their short, miserable lives are barely protected by increasingly weakened laws as the Trump administration shreds animal abuse regulations.

The United States Department of Agriculture may hold a temporary answer. This agency is empowered to grant emergency loans to farmers in the event of natural disasters, which the pandemic undoubtedly qualifies for. Sign the petition below to demand that countless living creatures be given a reprieve from death for as long as possible with federal help.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Secretary Perdue,

While public health officials have scrambled to save human lives amid the ongoing pandemic, millions of animals have died horrific deaths at the hands of industrial farmers protecting their profits. Millions of chickens and pigs have been killed without the protection of federal or state authorities, many of which have followed President Trump’s lead in wrecking what few humane laws were in place to begin with.

These murders will stop if the farming corporations responsible are bought off. You have the power to offer them emergency grants and loans to offset their losses due to natural disaster. I urge you to do so in order to extend the lives of countless helpless animals rendered defenseless by your administration’s policies.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
