At Mercy For Animals, protecting the rights of farmed animals is our top priority. We also recognize the unprecedented impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and want IHOP to be able to do everything it can to prevent the spread of this virus. To that end, we have temporarily suspended our public awareness campaign.

IHOP is failing animals.

IHOP allows horrific cruelty in their supply chain. Factory farms across the United States and Canada subject chickens to unspeakable abuse, and IHOP has failed to implement any meaningful animal welfare policies to prevent this suffering for their operations.

Tell IHOP you won’t stand for animal abuse.

Many of their competitors, including Denny’s, Starbucks, Burger King, Subway, Popeyes, Chipotle, and Sonic Drive-In, along with more than 200 other brands, have already pledged to ban the worst cruelty in their chicken supply chains. It’s time for IHOP to do the same.
