Can’t find higher-welfare animal products in your favorite local supermarkets and pet food stores?
Show businesses that there’s a demand for more humanely produced food: If you don’t find welfare-certified or plant-based alternatives where you shop or eat, the best thing you can do is ask for them.
Post for Farm Animals
Businesses are paying more attention than ever to feedback on social media. A simple, polite post tagging your supermarket or pet food store will help put the issue of farm animal welfare on their radar. If enough people speak up, they’ll change how they do business.
Post to make pet food and treat shopping easier:
Example Post: Farm animals deserve respect and compassion. I’m looking for pet food and treat options that don’t support factory farming. #EndFactoryFarming #ShopWithYourHeart
Post for farm animal welfare commitments from your supermarket:
Example Post: I am one of the 89% of Americans concerned about factory farming and its devastating effects. Please adopt meaningful farm animal welfare policies and share your progress towards achieving these! aspca.org/supermarketscorecard #SupermarketScorecard
