Stop Making Pigs Suffer

McDonald's, Burger King, and Wendy's have all agreed to phase cruel gestation crates (tiny crates for pregnant pigs) out of their supply chains. Why can't Domino's do the same to take a stance against intensive confinement?

I have been a Domino's customer for a long time, and let me tell you honestly that I'm not a vegetarian and am not animal rights activist, either. But when you see how these pigs are abused, it's so obvious to everyone with a kind heart that these animals should be given basic things in life - like the ability to turn around and not live in filthy cages. They are living, breathing animals after all, right?

Pregnant pigs are kept in gestation crates for about four months of pregnancy, their piglets are taken away after just a few weeks and then the pigs are impregnated again and forced into gestation crates for another cruel cycle. This madness goes on for years until the poor pigs are so worn down that her best use for the industry is slaughter. This cruel confinement results in mental and psychological problems for millions of smart, curious pigs every year. Companies like Domino's should not tolerate this and consumers should not buy the product of such suffering.

Whether you're a vegan, vegetarian, the biggest carnivore on the planet or somewhere in between, please join me in asking Domino's to do the right thing and stop using these cruel gestation crates.

McDonald's even said it "believes gestation stalls are not a sustainable production system for the future," and that there "are alternatives (it thinks) are better for the welfare of sows.”

If all these huge companies can commit to getting rid of gestation crates, why is Domino's unwilling to listen to the rest of the industry and consumer demand? Will ham, sausage, and pepperoni taste any different without this extreme cruelty? I doubt it!

Please help pigs and sign my petition to Domino's today.

      I used to love your pizza. But I will pay the extra money, instead for humane treatment of these animals, while they live.

      What Domino's is doing is wrong and cruel. Even if you are a meat eater, frightened animals have a more bitter taste. There are alternative methods.

      Having formerly worked for Domino's for several years, I am severely disappointed to hear these practices are being consciously continued. Please reconsider this cruel treatment of pigs.
