Animals living on farms are one of the most abused beings on this planet. They are raised for food and have absolutely no choice whatsoever on what to do with their lives. Cows, pigs, and chickens (among many other species) are raised for food and their body parts are put on display; it’s barbaric and completely disturbing.
I have been living on the countryside for the past 12 years and let me tell you that listening to pigs scream every single day, while they are being fed to grow bigger and locked away from the sun 24/7, is not a fun part of my life. That is why I want to talk to you about some ways on how you can help farm animals so that we can together change the lives of those incredibly smart and kind animals.
As you know by now, the biggest and basically the only way we can help farm animals, and any other animal for that matter, is by going vegan. The best way of showing how much we care for the animals is by not eating them.
Once you stop consuming them and treating them as slaves (which is what so-called pets are, listen to Gary Francione speak about this here) you are able to expand your compassion and help others do the same.
Literally, the only way to truly help farm animals is by going vegan because if you want to help them while still eating their flesh or anything that comes out of their body (did you know that eggs are literally menstruation), you are not really interested in helping them at all.
If you are a vegan though, you can do so much as well to help farm animals: you can volunteer at a farm sanctuary, sign petitions, spread the truth behind the meat/dairy and egg industry, and donate money, just ask how you can help to your favorite animal sanctuary/farm and do as much as you can.
Once you are ready to talk to other people about veganism you can connect to animal rights activists or educators that live in your local area, they will surely help you with getting on stage and speaking about the importance of veganism. You can join activists on the street demanding the rights and equality among all beings on this planet. Everything that you do matters to the billions of farm animals who are slaughtered every year.
I personally write on my website to spread the message on the internet and help (new) vegans through social media. Hey, for an introvert that is a lot.
Remember, you have the power to change the lives of many animals on this planet. If you want to learn about how to become an animal rights activist, here is a post that I wrote on the topic.
