Help Farm Animals in Manitoba! Manitoba Animal Save is launching an exciting campaign to raise funds to have animal rights billboards placed across various locations around Winnipeg.
Tens of thousands of animals - including pigs, chickens, cows and others - suffer in deplorable conditions on factory farms, in slaughterhouses, and on slaughterhouse trucks in Manitoba every year. The standard of welfare of animals on farms in Manitoba is already low, allowing tremendous cruelty and suffering to the animals. For example, farrowing crates - steel pens that literally encase a female pig and allow her no movement at all - are permitted in Manitoba. Industrial hog barns in Manitoba currently keep most of their pigs inside 24/7, standing and sleeping on hard slatted floors, over pits of their own faeces and urine for their entire lives. In the last 10 years, 64,000 pigs have been killed in fires on industrial hog farms in Manitoba. Recently, Manitoba Animal Save activists captured footage of “spent” hens crammed into animal transport trucks in deplorable conditions- their bodies bent and broken from constant abuse in the egg laying industry. Animals in Manitoba deserve better!
Manitoba Animal Save is one chapter of the global network- The Save Movement- that aims to bear witness, offer love and compassion to animals in their final moments, and create social change by raising awareness of animal suffering and advocating for veganism and ending speciesism.
The animal agriculture lobby industries such as Manitoba Pork and Manitoba Chicken, spend millions on advertising right here in Manitoba- you can see their ads on bus shelters, transit buses and billboards all around Winnipeg. Please join Manitoba Animal Save in this exciting campaign to give voice to the innocent victims of the animal agriculture industry. We plan to raise funds for three large billboards in strategic locations in Winnipeg – near to the Maple Leaf hog processing plant and Dunn-Rite Chicken slaughterhouse – that make people stop and think. The ads we display are educational and will ask people to think about why we treat farm animals differently than family pets. Why are dogs and cats protected from animal cruelty, while we subject farm animals to shocking cruelty?
We want to remind people that ALL animals suffer from pain and fear, and that ALL animals deserve freedom. We want to remind people that animals on farms suffer pain just like their own dog or cat,. We want to make people think about the individuals that they are eating. A dog is no different than a cow, pig or a chicken. They are all animals that deserve protection, to feel love, and to live free from exploitation.
With your help, we can raise $5000 which will help cover the costs of these billboards. Your gift will be doubled, as The Save Movement will generously match any amount we raise up to $5000. Thank you for any amount you can give to help raise awareness about the plight of farm animals in Manitoba!
