Animal shelters can be a valuable resource for raising awareness in their communities. Shelter staff can educate themselves about the human and animal health hazards and then educate the public. A simple sticker in your office window opposing factory farms or a pamphlet available to your visitors can go a long way toward advocating the humane treatment of farm animals in your community.
