Supporting farm animals

You may be surprised to know that more than 900 million animals are farmed for food each year in the UK.

This week is the RSPCA’s Farm Animal Week (September 29 to October 5), and we will be raising awareness of the cramped conditions in which millions of farm animals spend their lives.
