Your everyday choices can create a world of compassion for animals suffering on factory farms. From embracing plant-based foods to spreading awareness, discover how to build your unique animal protection journey. 

Farmed animals suffer unimaginable cruelty on factory farms. But YOU have the power to become an animal protector on your own terms. 

Here are six steps you can take to create a world with less suffering. 

Keep experimenting with plant-based foods. 

Plant-based foods aren’t just good for your health, the environment, and your community. They also prevent the suffering of pigs, cows, chickens, lambs, and other farmed animals. 

By choosing plant-based foods, you’ll spare about 300 land animals from suffering each year. You’ll also fuel the global plant-based movement and become an example for those around you. 

So, if you like homemade hummus, bean burritos with cashew cheese, or eggless cakes and cookies, you’re in luck. Each time you take a bite, you’re part of the solution. 

Share the love.

Next time you’re sharing a meal with family and friends, share why you love plant-based foods. Better yet, bring some meals to pass around. Your dairy-free mac and cheese might be the next hit at family gatherings. 

Even short conversations with strangers plant compassionate seeds that grow into long-term change. So, the next time somebody strikes up a conversation at the grocery store check-out, start by recommending your favorite plant-based products. 

Fire up your social media accounts.

Social media is a powerful tool, so why not use it to help animals? By sharing videos of investigations inside slaughterhouses and factory farms, you can show the world exactly what you stand for. 

The best part is that it’s easy. With the click of a button, your friends and family will see how animals suffer to produce meat, dairy, and eggs. Change begins with awareness, and you can be the catalyst.

Sign the Petition.

Do you want to end the dog and cat meat trade in China? Will you take a stand against force-feeding ducks and geese? Can horses count on you to end their slaughter around the world? 

If any of these issues get you fired up, simply sign Animal Equality’s petitions to end animal cruelty. You’ll even find a petition to stop factory farming for good. 

Volunteer with Animal Equality. 

Whether it’s emailing corporate executives or writing to Congress, you can volunteer with Animal Equality without ever leaving your home. Sign up here to find out how your smartphone can be a tool for animal advocacy. 

But if you’re ready to join the action in person, Animal Equality has a place for you. By becoming a volunteer, you’ll receive alerts about protests in your area. Join advocates as they hold signs, pass out leaflets, and speak to the public about ending animal cruelty. 

Donate to your favorite animal protection group. 

Combating a multi-billion-dollar industry requires enormous resources. But you can support this mission by donating to Animal Equality, which has been named a Top Charity by Animal Charity Evaluators. 

You could provide a camera for an undercover investigator, join legislative campaigns to change laws for animals, or even win corporate animal welfare policies. By donating to Animal Equality, you’ll create a world where all animals are respected and protected. 

So, what are you waiting for? Get out there and show the world what we can accomplish for animals together. 

Meanwhile, don’t forget to pat yourself on the back…because the world needs more heroes like you.
