Help Farm Animals – A Note From PETA

I’d like you to meet Lily. 

Lily was considered trash. She was thrown into a discard bin at an egg farm after being debeaked. She was already missing most of her feathers. 

You can help save animals like Lily from the horrors of factory farming. Please, make your special year-end gift today.After a lengthy recuperation with a loving member of the PETA staff, Lily is now a beautiful girl who lives in comfort and spends her time basking in the sun with her best friend, Braveheart, a rescued rooster who also came from a sorry situation. 

Thinking, feeling animals like Lily are the reason that PETA and caring people like you have led the fight to end the horrors of factory farming. But even though we have rescued many animals, millions of other precious individuals remain shut in tiny cages, denied everything that is natural, comfortable, and pleasant to them. Please help us save farmed animals like Lily by making a tax-deductible, year-end gift to PETA today.

With your loyal support, we can bring compassionate changes to the lives of so many cows, pigs, turkeys, chickens, and other farmed animals who are every bit as dear as Lily is. Our recent victories with Safeway, Harris Teeter, Winn-Dixie, and most KFCs in Canada and the passage of Proposition 2 in California have generated powerful momentum for sweeping reforms in how animals are treated. 

We need to have the resources to increase the pressure on Hormel and Aviagen Turkeys, Inc., whose suppliers or employees we caught on camera inflicting horrible abuse on animals. PETA’s recent undercover investigation at Aviagen’s factory farms in West Virginia documented that workers were abusing, mutilating, and maliciously killing turkeys, and our investigation at a Hormel supplier in Iowa found that workers were beating, kicking, and shocking pigs. 

These animals are so defenseless against violence that denying them any help when they are sick or injured and depriving them of almost everything they need is the norm on these farms. But you are strong. You can help us end the suffering on factory farms and save the lives of countless farmed animals. For the sake of all animals like Lily, we need your support today.

I hope that even in these difficult times, you will not forsake animals and will still open your heart to them by giving whatever you can. Every dollar counts in times like these.

This holiday season, thank you for not forgetting animals who suffer on factory farms and for doing all that you can to help. Your personal commitment makes us strong and is bringing much-needed hope to abused animals everywhere. 

We wish you a joyous holiday. 

Kind regards, 

Ingrid Newkirk

President

P.S. With your support, PETA has taken on some of the biggest companies in the world that support factory farming—and won victories that have changed the lives of millions of individual animals. But we simply cannot take on these corporations 365 days a year without you. Please make a tax-deductible, year-end gift to PETA today to help end the suffering of animals on factory farms.
