An excerpt from Captive: "Recently, our obsession with social media has further degraded any meaningful interactions we might ever have had with the animals; as a result, this book is filled with images of we animals being engaged only with one another or ourselves." - Jo

An estimated 46 million #turkeys are killed each year for #Thanksgiving.

Turkeys on industrial farms are bred to grow at unnaturally fast rates. As a result, these birds are often unable to walk and even suffer heart attacks at just a few weeks of age. Many will die before they reach slaughter weight.

With so many #meatfree alternatives now available, we can help to end this suffering. We can choose #compassion this holiday season.

"The way animals are killed for their fur is absolutely deplorable." Jean Paul Gaultier via @the.independent
.
Major fashion house, @jpgaultierofficial bans the use of fur in all its collections! This move will save more animals from the cruelty of fur farming and trapping.
.
Thanks to the campaigning efforts of organizations and individuals worldwide, the list of major labels choosing to reflect our values by ditching fur is ever-growing and marks a sign of changed times.
.
We are making fur history! The future of fashion is fur-free.

"The animal victims of the first world war are a stain on our conscience... Their stories bear witness to the loyalty of animals, yet their indispensable role is largely ignored." – Philip Hoare on the animal victims of #WW1 via @guardian
.
Sixteen million animals "served" between 1914-18. Many lost their lives. We will remember them.

Globally, more than 50 million animals are farmed and killed for their fur every year.

Fur farms are often located far away from cities and towns, hidden from view. Here, animals farmed for their fur live in cramped and filthy cages, with no protection from the cold.

Please choose #FurFree this winter.

"Photography is the only "language" understood in all parts of the world, bridging all nations and cultures. It reflects truthfully life and events, allows us to share in the hopes and despairs of others, and illuminates political and social conditions. We become the eye-witnesses of the humanity and inhumanity of mankind." – Helmut Gernsheim

BREAKING: California has just passed the most progressive welfare law to date for farmed animals in the United States! #YesOnProp12

On Tuesday 6th November, a majority of Californians voted YES to #Prop12. This new law will affect the lives of some of America's most vulnerable animals – those who suffer in factory farming systems – including calves, breeding pigs, and egg-laying hens.

Proposition 12 or the Prevent Cruelty California Act establishes new standards and minimum requirements for confining certain farm animals, and prohibits the sales of meat and egg products that come from farms which do not comply.

While the passing of Proposition 12 won't end animal suffering, it is a major step forward and huge progress in our fight for animals. Thanks to the dedicated individuals and organizations whose campaigning efforts have helped to make this happen.

BREAKING: Florida bans greyhound racing!
.
Amendment 13, which will see a ban on greyhound racing in Florida by 2020, has passed.
.
Florida currently has 11 of the country's 17 dog racing tracks. The passage of this amendment will make placing bets on greyhound and other dog races illegal, and will give thousands of innocent hounds a second chance at life when the adoption processes commence.
.
The @voteyeson13 campaign released a statement Tuesday night, calling the amendment's passage a “historic vote.” #VoteYesOn13
.
This entertainment sport is responsible for the suffering and death of countless greyhounds across the world. It needs to end. While there's still much work to be done, this is positive progress for animal protection in the U.S.

Earlier this year, We Animals teamed up with @neavs_1895 (New England Anti-Vivisection Society) to create a short film that shows the impact of weak laws on the animals suffering in the name of science.
.
"One of the most challenging aspects of telling animal-centered stories is that so often they are deliberately hidden from public view. Possibly nowhere is this more true than behind the locked doors of animal laboratories. As a filmmaker, documenting the lucky few who had been placed in sanctuaries would be the closest I could hope to get, but I wondered perhaps if their new backdrop would make it impossible to see them as anything but some very lucky monkeys. I was wrong. Though they have flourished under the peace of sanctuary life, their past traumas will always be with them in the tattoos on their stomachs, the viruses in their blood, and the haunted look in their eyes. I hope this film can help shine a light on the thousands of primates left behind, unseen, still in labs." – We Animals filmmaker Kelly Guerin, on her experience making the film.
.
Organizations such as NEAVS are helping bring the lives of these individuals into the public eye. Their important work offers hope for a future free from animal testing. A future that embraces modern technology and humane approaches that increase reliability.
