Chickens and Turkeys Deserve Protection, Too!

Nine out of 10 animals in US slaughter plants -- chickens and turkeys -- aren't even protected by the federal Humane Methods of Slaughter Act. That means these animals are often killed while still conscious, and don't have the same basic protections as cows and pigs. Thankfully, the Secretary of Agriculture can close this terrible loophole with the stroke of a pen. We need your help to ensure that more humane practices are adopted.

TAKE ACTION
Please write to United States Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack today and urge him to include poultry under the Humane Methods of Slaughter Act.

Please cover poultry under the Humane Methods of Slaughter Act

Dear Secretary Vilsack,

Typical methods of slaughter for chickens and turkeys are cruel and inhumane. The USDA accepts that there are more humane methods available, but doesn't require their use since the agency exempts poultry from the Humane Methods of Slaughter Act. It's time to change that!



Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,
