Standing up for animal rights should be financially rewarded

The society we live in does not reward responsible behavior (towards animals).
Responsible behavior is when a person voluntarily attempts to prevent or solve problems for animals, which is within this person's capabilities and for which he/she is taking certain risks. It is a given fact that it is easy enough for us to assume a low profile and dismiss our responsibilities in case of wrong doings.
We would like to see farmers dismiss the commercial approach of factory farming and opt for a more animal worthy way of keeping animals. Breeders should be financially rewarded for balancing animal reproduction by supplying only on (verifiable) request.
People who opt for a worthy approach to animals should be rewarded instead of paying a price. It would be best to tax heavily all farm management that exploits animals and to stimulate ecological farming by limited taxation. This would be a way of stimulating positive behavior.
We feel that it is essential to put an end to the import and export of animals and animal food products. The best thing for our country would be to switch to ecological farm management and concentrate only on the domestic market in order to resist the temptation of overproduction.

logoThis page describes one aspect of the influence that man has on the quality of life of an animal. We wish to promote the (in other countries as well) growing of awareness, that freedom is also important for an animal. An animal is not a thing, but a being that has the right to quality of a natural way of life. If you want to do something to help animals, click here for our suggestions.
