Crush Cockfighting Campaign and Captive Panda Assault

Dear UPC Supporter,

In addition, United Poultry Concerns is sharing with you and supporting the new Crush Cockfighting Campaign launched by SHARK (Showing Animals Respect and Kindness). Please support SHARK’s campaign to free roosters from this criminal enterprise.
