World Day for Farm Animals

October 2 is World Day for Farm Animals!

Founded in 1983, this holiday sets out to expose the cruelty that many animals raised on farms for slaughter endure. October 2 was chosen as World Day for Farm Animals because it aligns with Mahatma Ghandi’s birthday, who advocated for the improved treatment of animals.

Each year, 65 Billion animals are killed for food, many of which suffer confinement and mutilation on factory farms. You can help end the suffering by staying informed and educating others on the ill-treatment of farm animals worldwide.
