Vegan for Animals WordPress Widget

How many animals are killed each year? How many animals are killed each day? How many animals are being killed as you’re reading this? And how is that supported by states or the European Union? We make these transparent!

So, what does Vegan for Animals WordPress Widget?

Our free (and open source) WordPress widget makes these issues transparent to the broader public. It includes an animal killcounter with international as well as Germany-specific figures, and a subsidies counter for the EU’s animal agriculture subsidies programmes.

Furthermore the widget provides means to lead site visitors to resources that enable them to end this system of exploitation. Which resources the site visitors are pointed to is configurable, meaning you can tailor the widget to your audience and lead them to any resources of your choice.

This widget is a great addition to your vegetarian, vegan and animal rights-centered wordpress site. Make your visitors aware of the extent of animal exploitation using facts and numbers on the number of killed animals as well as public subsidies. You can add multiple instances of this widget to your site, meaning you could for example display both the international kill counter and the EU subsidies counter.

The widget is currently available in English and German – translation into other languages is easy to do and any help is welcome.
