Written by Erica Meier

CompassionWe’re halfway through 2012 and it’s been a tremendous year so far for COK – and for animals. Together, with your generous support, we’re making incredible strides, and we’re thrilled to share some highlights from our work during the past six months:

COK campaign progress: Subway debuts three vegan sandwiches in select stores – earlier this month, we announced that these vegan options are now sold out!

COK settles animal cruelty lawsuit against hatchery we investigated: California chicken & duck hatching factory ceases operation

COK releases undercover video inside Iowa pig factory farm exposing cruelty to thousands of mother pigs and their piglets (take action to help stop the painful castration of male piglets)

COK Commercial Campaign: Millions of HULU.com viewers are served a “Side of Truth.

COK co-files lawsuit against the USDA to stop the sale of diseased poultry products (foie gras)

After working with COK, Quorn commits to launching vegan options in the UK

Thousands take COK’s 7-day veg pledge during VegWeek 2012 – and the feedback was phenomenal!

COK staff and volunteers have hosted hundreds of outreach events nationwide (from California to Maine to Texas to Florida), giving out thousands of vegan food samples and tens of thousands of free pro-veg materials.

And there’s so much more – just visit COK.net to see the latest news and updates about our efforts to protect animals as well as the extensive media coverage that our efforts are garnering.
