Living a vegan lifestyle is, of course, the most compassionate way to exist. Animals feel pain. Period. Why would someone choose to torture something for their own pleasure?

Some wonderful news for our chicken friends in Australia!

image

McDonalds Australia has confirmed they’re going to begin phasing out cage eggs from all of it’s 900 stores across Australia!

None of this could have happened without the people of the public. Thousands of people turned to Facebook and sent emails, raising their voices for chickens and giving their opinion on the use of cage eggs.

McDonalds say that by the end of 2017, no hen will suffer in a cage to produce an egg for McDonalds Australia. 

Although we would all like to see it happen today (or yesterday!), sadly it will take three years for McDonalds to completely phase out cage eggs. 
McDonalds use a shocking 91 million eggs every year! And currently all of these eggs come from hens in battery cages.
A phase out is a reality and by the end of 2017 cage eggs will no longer be an ingredient in a McDonalds meal!

What else can we do?

Urge other fast food restaurants to do the same! Every step counts, never give up hope.

Dismantle the secret puppy factory supply chain

Life for a breeding dog in a puppy factory is one of cruelty and deprivation. No ball games at the park, no walks on the beach, no family to love, or to love them. Most of these dogs will be killed when their ‘productive’ life is over. Those lucky enough to be rescued often suffer severe mental distress for years.

Puppy factory operators know that dog lovers would be horrified by the suffering that goes hand in hand with treating animals like breeding machines. Pet shop owners know this too — which is why more and more pet shops deny supporting the puppy factory trade.

Yet, recent footage supplied to Animals Australia has sparked an investigation into one of Australia’s most prolific puppy factories based in Kerang, Victoria — and its secret ties with popular pet stores and web stores. The revelations are damning.

Despite having a policy against ‘unethical’ breeders and information encouraging buyers to ’choose a responsible breeder’, a lack of scrutiny on sellers has made the Trading Post a hub for puppy factory sales. As Australia’s largest online classifieds, the Trading Post wields the power to either underpin or undermine the online puppy factory trade.

Animals Australia has written to the management of the Trading Post asking them to protect dogs, and to prevent puppy factories from advertising on the Trading Post website. You can speak out for puppies too. Please click here to contact the management of the Trading Post and urge them to enact a policy to onlyallow ads from legitimate animal shelters.
