Tell Domino's: Stop Using Gestation Crates To Torture Pregnant Pigs!
McDonalds, Burger King and Wendy’s have all agreed to stop using gestation crates to torture the sows up for slaughter. Help us make Domino’s do the same!
Gestation crates are designed to force female pigs to give birth to five to eight litters in their lifetime. These gentle, intelligent animals spend most of their lives laying flat on their stomachs in side-by-side crates, unable to turn or stand and wallowing in their own excrement. For some, the stress and frustration of their enclosures robs them of all desire to live, unwilling to defend themselves even when they are bitten by other pigs or stabbed by slaughterhouse employees.
This level of animal cruelty is unconscionable, especially when it does nothing to help the companies that practice it. Studies show sows live longer and give birth to healthier children when they’re better cared for, and fast food companies around the world are taking steps to phase out gestation crates entirely. We need your help to keep that momentum going.
Please, sign our petition urging Domino’s to stop this cruel practice now!
PETITION TO DOMINOS: Using gestation crates to house pregnant sows is cruel and unusual, making their lives miserable without any benefit to your business. We urge you to join fast food companies like McDonalds, Burger King and Wendy’s in phasing out these instruments of torture, and to take a stand against animal cruelty in your slaughterhouses.
