The Rescue Teams
Compassionate Consumers (New York, USA)
Compassionate Consumers is a not-for-profit animal advocacy organization based in Rochester, NY. CC focuses on the cruelty of animals in agriculture and encourages consumers to adopt a vegetarian diet or seek out more humane animal products.
Compassionate Consumers was founded in 2003 by a small group of people concerned about animal welfare in the food industry. Many people have little or no connection to where any of their food comes from. Farm animals are often hidden from view in large warehouse-like facilities; and the origin of any specific animal product can be difficult to trace. Out of sight, out of mind - and its time for that to change. This is the spark that began the organization and its drive to bring information to the public about these issues.
What We Do
As a group we believe that it is important to be peaceful, friendly, organized and professional. These qualities are vital when informing people about the reality of modern animal agriculture and what they can do about it. Some of the techniques we use are leaflet distribution, tabling, video showings and peaceful demonstrations.
