Educate

We work to protect farmed animals, end their exploitation and foster compassionate cruelty-free living.

An Unstoppable Mission

We work to protect farmed animals, end their exploitation and foster compassionate cruelty-free living.

In Australia alone, 500 million farmed animals annually endure anguished lives of unimaginable confinement and cruelty before being killed for food at just a fraction of their natural lifespans. Their plight is ignored by society and farmed animals remain the least protected by law. Their daily suffering is immense and unthinkable.

Our Work

Together with your support, we work to protect farmed animals, end their exploitation and foster compassionate, cruelty-free living through rescue and public education.

Rescue

We provide lifesaving rescue and care of farmed animals who have endured cruelty, abuse or neglect. Approximately 300 animals reside at our sanctuary.

Whilst we cannot rescue all the animals in animal agriculture, we know that sanctuary can heal the animals who have been rescued, and fundamentally impact — often with lasting change — the people who hear our messages of hope, healing, compassion, and kindness.

Educate

Our education programmes instil both compassion and a greater understanding of the sentience and plight of farmed animals.

Whether we are teaching a group of young minds through our humane education programme; explaining the truth behind humane labels during a tour at our sanctuary; or delivering a message of compassion for farmed animals to thousands of people weekly through our social media campaigns, we believe that education is key to creating change in the world.

Humane education
Introducing a child to an individual cow, pig, or chicken is a simple but powerful act. Students are full of wonder as they learn an animal’s name, look into their eyes, and listen to their story. Their minds are opened to new worlds – about who farmed animals are and the profound consequences of our food system not only on the animals, but on humans and our planet.

Sanctuary tours

The sanctuary itself is a platform enabling people to make meaningful connections between the animals at the sanctuary and the food on their plates. By sharing our residents’ tales of survival and sentience we are able to tell the stories of our modern food systems and shine a light on inherent cruelties of animal agriculture and its continued damage to the planet, our health and the animals.

Public awareness
Since 2014, Where Pigs Fly Farm Sanctuary has been driving change by engaging the public with a message of respect and compassion for all animals. Now, Where Pigs Fly reaches thousands each week through social media, traditional media and public awareness campaigns. By sharing our rescue residents’ tales of survival and sentience, we provide a greater understanding of the plight and sentience of farmed animals in our society.
