These powerful videos help raise awareness for animals who suffer every day at factory farms and slaughterhouses. These animals are subjected to unspeakable cruelties: crowded, filthy conditions; mutilations without painkillers; and violent deaths. By choosing compassion and switching to a vegan diet, you can help save more farmed animals than ever before in 2019!
