Help the Reindeer

Reindeer are a holiday icon, immortalized for eating carrots and leading Santa’s sleigh around the world in one night.
But the truth about the lives of many reindeer in Finland and Sweden is tragic: They are subjected to abuse on a massive, commercial scale.

Commercial reindeer husbandry operations round-up, transport and slaughter reindeer for food. Throughout the process they are scared, mishandled and injured. Animal welfare laws in both countries outlaw the kind of inhumane treatment the reindeer endure.

The Växjö Declaration is a document among Scandinavian countries that states that animals are sentient beings with their own intrinsic value and deserved to be respected. Yet, this cruel treatment of reindeer goes on unrestricted.

Stop the holiday cruelty: Tell the Nordic Council of Ministers to uphold the Växjö Declaration and end inhumane treatment of reindeer »

Thanks for taking action!
