In Australia alone, there are 12 million hens cruelly confined in small cages less than the size of an A4 piece of paper (Read more in The Sad Truth Behind Your Food). Fortunately we have an amazing not-for-profit group ‘Animals Australia‘ who is the nations most diligent and active animal protection organisation, who continually advocates on behalf of these sentient beings.
Their latest campaign targets battery hens and specifically, caged eggs. The group has recently launched a comedic and inspiring campaign ‘that ain’t no way to treat a lady’ to raise much-needed awareness about this issue, which you can watch here.
As a result, I have started an online fundraising page to help Animals Australia spread the word to as many people as possible. This page was developed in honour of Amnesty, whom was rescued by Animals Amnesty, another proactive animal protection group based here in Western Australia.
Amnesty spent her whole life confined in a tiny cage, where she couldn’t spread her wings or even turn around. She was, and continues to be a large driving force behind the group and their brilliant Animal Rescue Team. Her legacy can now live on thanks to compassionate people all around the world.
Whilst abolishing caged/battery hen farms does not eliminate all the cruelty that is inherent in the egg industry (i.e the gasing/ maceration of male chics, the early slaughter age and the barbaric method in which this occurs), it will certainly begin to pave the way for a kinder and compassionate world for those we share this beautiful planet with.
So if you can spare any change, please donate to my fundraising page in honour of Amnesty and the millions of animals who suffer in silence on factory farms every day.
For the animals, our planet and our sense of humanity,
