Today I will talk about why farm animals need our help and all the things that we can do to help them.
Animals living on a farm 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 country side 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 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, and 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 and donate money, just ask how you can help 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.
I personally write on my website to spread the message on the internet and build a big community of people that will join me in educating others; there are so many plans that I have for the future.
If you are interested in online activism, I would recommend you to read one of my eBooks – Vegan Online: A Guide to Online Activism. I know that a lot of people do not feel confident enough to go out and protest, and that is fine and normal, no need to feel like you are not helping. Social media and blogging can be very successful activism tools, you just need to know how to use them.
I am eternally grateful to all of you who continue reading this website because each and every single one of your comments brightens up my day and shows me that I am doing something right. Thank you!
