January 26, 2010, Ann Arbor, MI – As part of its effort to have Domino’s implement the same types of basic animal welfare changes that many other restaurant chains have made, The Humane Society of the United States has purchased stock in the pizza company.

The Humane Society intends to use its stockholder position to move the company away from pork suppliers that confine breeding pigs in gestation crates and to poultry producers that use controlled-atmosphere killing instead of the industry's standard method.
 
“As a shareholder, The Humane Society of the United States hopes to work with the company on making meaningful animal welfare reforms to benefit animals and shareholders alike,” said Matthew Prescott, corporate outreach director for the organization’s factory farming campaign.
