#DontEatCruelty

"There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known."

-- Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot, 1994

As individuals we struggle to comprehend how our choices impact the world. You are just one of the 7.7 billion humans living on Earth right now, yet when our choices synchronize we have the power to change everything.Most do not realizee what horrific things they are funding when they buy meat, or dairy and other animal products. More still do not realize the impact of animal farming , particularly dairy, on our climate.

The MSPCA is campaigning for better animal welfare and environmental protection in animal farming through the #DontEatCruelty campaign. Here you will find information about how animal farming is cruel, how it impacts the environment and how you can help stop the madness. You don't need to go full on vegan or vegetarian. Reducing your intake and encouraging your friends and family to also reduce their intake can have a ripple effect and have significant impact on the industry and policy. Please help us by sharing this page far and wide and support the campaign through donations.

This is a new section of our website and we are still building a pool of reference articles. Please bare with us as we read every word to ensure the content is correct and verifiable. If you wish to contribute to this page or want to suggest a link, please email manager@spcamalta.org

Animal activists ‘apologise’ to pigs on their way to slaughter at Marsa abattoir

Animal rights activists stroked pigs as they bade them goodbye outside the abattoir: 'For a ham sandwich, is it worth it?'

Heartbreaking video: Calf begging abattoire worker not to kill him.

Humane slaughter is a myth. The animals know they are in danger and you can easily see the level of panic they experience.

Pet Food & Animal Testing

When we refer to animal testing in the pet food world, we’re talking about laboratory animals being subjected to invasive tests. This is, I believe, what many animal testing advocates fail to recognize.
