The Humane Society has recently put their money where their mouth is (well, more like where YOUR mouth is) and invested in fast food chains.
They literally invested $4,000 in Apollo Global Management, who owns Carl Jr's and Hardee's.
They mean to try and change how animals are treated at the plants they contract with from the top down.
The whole reason for the investment is to be able to speak at stock holder meetings and offer solutions for increasing animal welfare, even though they only own 0.00016% of the company.
"We are hoping that we can accomplish our goals without presenting a resolution.
We are working not only with Apollo Group Management, but also with individuals at Carl Jr's and Hardee's."
And because the two fast food chains already agreed, after talks with PETA, to try and contract with humane vendors, the Humane Society should be able to really get some work done from the inside.
Great idea, way to help the animals!
