A life of pain
Given the choice, pigs would spend hours roaming around and foraging for food. In the wild, they’d rest on comfortable bedding made of grass and leaves.
But in factory farms, it’s a different story.
They develop skin lesions, painful lameness, digestive problems and lung disease. Factory-farmed pigs have no joy in their lives. Only pain and suffering.
Together we have the power to end this suffering, by getting pigs out of cages and into groups. That’s why we launched the Raise Pigs Right campaign.
Pigs should have materials like straw to chew and manipulate. Piglets should not be cruelly mutilated in the first weeks of their lives. In contrast to factory farming, good animal welfare reduces stress, injury and disease, decreasing the need to use antibiotics routinely.
Over 210,000 of you agree.
Results so far
Thanks to your signatures, one of the world’s largest pork producers, CP Food, has committed to give pigs better lives. They’re doing by this by getting them out of cages and into groups, where they can socialise and exhibit natural behaviours.
America’s largest supermarket chain, Kroger, also recently committed to ending the confinement of pregnant pigs in their fresh pork supply chain by 2025. This was the results of more than 72,000 people in the US signing our petition asking Kroger to use their buying power to raise pigs right
We’re continuing to move supermarkets and their supply chains all over the world to raise pigs right.
Without your support, none of this vital work would have been possible, and thousands more pigs would be suffering each year. Thank you.
As we continue to fight for better lives for pigs, we’ll update you with any wins.
