Help save livestock animals from unneccessary slaughter at auctions
As an farm animal sanctuary, we feel this needs to addressed.Sign PetitionSign Petition
Every year livestock auctions and fair auctions take place, killing hundreds if not thousands state wide in California. Most fair goers don't fully grasp what happens to the cute animals they go to see and pet.
We have recently discovered that if fairs or auction owners learn you are a sactuary or a rescue, you will not be allowed to sign up to bid. There are some fairs that allow you to take the animal home after winning a bid.
We don't want to shame the children who want to be apart of 4H, we want them to learn about animals, caring for, raising, and given an alternative option to slaughter.
Here is what we would like to see happen:
California law, that all livestock/animal auctions, private practice, state, or county fairs be required to allow the option of non-fatal sale.
Auctions and Fairs are required to provide a list of rescues and sanctuaries to rehome the animal to, as an alternative to slaughter to the winning bidder.
To stop discrimination towards sanctuaries or rescues and allow them to register to bid.
Our goal is to help people and children learn about animals in such programs as 4H. We want to reward their hard work, but save their animals in the process and teach them there are other opinions out there.
