If you want to highlight the suffering farm animals needlessly suffer, you can share images and memes – remember to hashtag your posts.

World Day For Farmed Animals says: “Most of these animals are raised on factory farms, where they are confined, mutilated and raised to grow so large, so quickly, that many of them literally suffer to death. 

“Even animals raised on small family farms endure many of these abuses. Regardless of how they were raised, all animals raised for food face a gruesome slaughter. 

“We envision a kinder, more compassionate world where animals are no longer seen as commodities, raised for their flesh and by-products.”
