Save the Rennets ...

Welcome to the web site dedicated to saving rennets from unnecessary torture and slaughter.

Rennets are small hamster like rodents which are intensively factory farmed and slaughtered for the production of cheese. Rennets are added to milk when making cheese as this aids the coagulation process necessary for the production of cheese.

Rennets are used because they are high in an enzyme called chymosin, they breed frequently (a mother can provide a litter of 10 babies every two months) and they reach maturity quickly (a rennet reaches puberty at 3 months of age).

Rennets, which only grow to around 5cms long, are crammed into cages for three months, kept in the dark and then slaughtered by being dropped in boiling water. The skinless rennets are then minced and sold to cheese manufacturers.

We can all put an end to this cruelty to rennets by eating vegetarian cheese. Vegetarian cheeses are made without rennets and are clearly labelled as such. Furthermore you could e-mail this page to a friend or even write to your MP.
