ASPCA Offers Grants on Welfare


The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) is offering up to $100,000 in funding to organizations and institutions through the ASPCA Fund to End Factory Farming.  Grants ranging from $15,000 to $25,000 will support projects "bringing attention to the need to shift toward more humane healthy and sustainable on-farm practices".  A secondary objective is to reduce consumption of animal protein. 


In announcing the grants, Daisy Freund, Vice President of Farm Animal Welfare at the ASPCA stated, "the lack of transparency around industrial animal agriculture's harms has allowed this cruel form of animal production to dominate our food system".  She added, "the ASPCA Fund to End Factory Farming will support the broad community of researchers, advocates and businesses that are proving that there is a better way forward for animals, people and the environment".


ASPCA specifically anticipates grant request quantifying the alleged financial burden of factory farming and adverse effects on the environment and public health. The grants are essentially support for those who wish to "dig up dirt" on our highly efficient food system and to advance the unstated but evident vegan orientation of the ASPCA.
