 A wet market in Wuhan, China, called the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market, is believed to be the source of the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19. Now we just got one here In San Antonio, TX with "Alamo Farms"!

Wet markets sell and slaughter live animals on site including chickens, goats, cows, rabbits, and ducks. Animal exploitation has also been linked to other zoonotic diseases like swine flu, avian flu, SARS, MERS, brucellosis, tuberculosis, and the seasonal flu. The CDC says that 3 in 4 emerging infectious diseases come from animals! So why do we continue to exploit and kill them? In an interview on Fox & Friends in April, NIAID Director Dr. Anthony Fauci said, “It boggles my mind how, when we have so many diseases that emanate out of that unusual human-animal interface, that we just don't shut it down."  

Alamo Farms is a wet market where customers may choose a live animal to pet, take selfies with, and watch their last breaths leave them as they are slaughtered. Alamo Farms portrays themselves as “humanely slaughtering” these animals in the name of “God”, also known as Halal Meat. How is a knife to the throat humane?

Please help us shut this slaughterhouse down to help prevent the next pandemic and to stop the unnecessary killing of animals that belong to this land and that deserve to live their lives freely, just like us!
