Animals Also Wait for a New Normal

In this moment, when human society is changing the way it functions and finding a new normal, we have the opportunity to rethink our relationship with animals and look at them with more respect and empathy.

At industrial farms and slaughterhouses, animals exploited for food are considered mere products, treated cruelly in facilities that are usually crowded, dirty, and conducive to the emergence of infectious diseases. The global crises we are experiencing make clear that our current food system has negative consequences for us. Three of the major threats to human existence on Earth are related to raising animals for consumption: pandemics, superbugs, and climate change.

Watch Mercy For Animals’ new campaign video, and join the movement seeking to end animal exploitation.

Together, we can build a new normal for animals too.
