Meet a few of the animals whose lives were saved by Mercy For Animals.

Meet Roy

Roy was one of four calves rescued by MFA after an investigation of the E6 Cattle Company in Texas. Our investigator found workers bashing in the heads of calves with pickaxes and hammers, dragging calves like Roy around by the ears, and leaving others to slowly die from illness and injury. Thanks to MFA, felony cruelty charges were filed against farm workers, and Roy and his brothers are now living the good life in the pasture of an animal sanctuary.

Meet Emily

Emily was one of four ducklings rescued by an MFA investigator from the Hudson Valley Foie Gras farm in New York. MFA’s investigation revealed that three times a day, ducks on the farm were painfully force-fed through a pipe shoved down their throats. Our investigation prompted New York’s state legislators to reconsider a ban on this cruel practice. Thanks to MFA, Emily and her sisters are now quacking happily at an animal sanctuary.

Meet Hope

During an investigation at an egg farm in Ohio, Hope was found lying on a pile of dead birds. Only Hope wasn’t dead—just sick from a lifetime of confinement in a small, waste-filled wire “battery cage” where she could barely turn around. MFA founder Nathan Runkle rescued Hope and brought her to an animal sanctuary where she made a full recovery. Footage shot by MFA at this and other Ohio egg farms helped lead to a state ban on new battery cage facilities.
