Your help is urgently needed to end three of the worst abuses animals
endure on factory farms!
Thousands of California citizens are volunteering their time to
collect 650,000 signatures from other Californians to place the
Prevention of Farm Animal Cruelty Act on the November 2008 ballot.
This common-sense ballot measure will reduce a tremendous amount of
suffering and intensive confinement. It requires that animals be able
to turn around and extend their limbs, meaning that it would prohibit
battery cages for egg-laying hens, veal crates for calves, and
gestation crates for breeding pigs. Please take a moment to check out
a new campaign video about this historic initiative.
We still need to gather hundreds of thousands of signatures before
the end of February! But we can only do this with your active
As a California resident and voter, you can volunteer to help place
this critically important measure on the ballot. We really need your
help. Will you help us and volunteer to collect signatures to help
us reach our goal?
It's simple, fun, and rewarding -- and this measure alone will reduce
the misery that 20 million farm animals endure in the state in
cramped cages and crates on factory farms. And please also tell your
friends and family how they can get involved in the signature
gathering effort. If you are already a volunteer, thank you! If you
haven't been involved, now is the time!
With your help, we can win an enormously significant victory for farm
animals in California.
