Humane Myth is a community of former farmers, animal rescuers, animal sanctuary founders, educators, and artists working to create a just and nonviolent future. They describe the humane myth as "An idea being propagated by the animal-using industry and some animal protection organizations that it is possible to use and kill animals in a manner that can be fairly described as respectful or compassionate or humane.".
They started their website to "correct the misinformation that is associated with the Humane Myth, and to inspire a form of working for the peaceful transformation of our society that fully respects the inherent dignity and worth of animals and people alike.".
