Proof that pigs belong in our hearts — not our bellies.


LAST UPDATED: 14 July 2017

In all the ways that matter, pigs are no different to some of the animals we consider to be our best friends. Just like dogs, pigs will learn their names, wag their tails, gladly roll over for belly rubs, and even scale agility courses!

Pigs are remarkably intelligent, sensitive, affectionate and social animals who suffer tremendously for the sake of profits in the meat industry. Thankfully, with an increasing number of people opting for pig and animal-friendly meals, there is real hope that one day these animals will be universally seen as friends — not food.

Help create a kinder world for our porcine friends by discovering how your simple, every-day choices can free them from abuse.


I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.Winston Churchill
