Why do we call some animals "pet" and others "food"?
There are many similarities between the animals we call "family" and the animals we call "dinner".
This website exposes (also) the shocking cruelty that animals raised for food face on today's factory farms, every minute of every day. They are born to die and sentenced to suffer. Their life is hell, from the moment they are born till their very last heartbeat.
If your dog or cat (or any other "pet") would have to suffer like that only for a fraction of time, it would - without any doubt - break your heart!
