Slaughter Free Networks

Most people are unaware that inner-city slaughterhouses exist in residential city neighborhoods throughout the U.S.  These establishments often appear to be a neighborhood grocery or meat market, but in reality, live animals are delivered, usually overnight, and slaughtered on site. 

Inner-city slaughterhouses are not found in affluent neighborhoods.  Instead, they are located in lower income communities, exposing residents to sounds, smells, debris, and pathogens that are not only a risk to human health and safety, but may have negative psychological impacts on the community.  Often, these establishments are out of compliance with city, state and federal health and safety regulations.

Public officials must be held accountable for lack of enforcement where violations impact animals, the environment and the community.  We help facilitate accountability and enforcement by providing information and consulting services to Slaughter Free Networks.
