Weekly vigils and outreach with Toronto-area SavesToronto Pig Save has a firm commitment to hold at least three vigils or other vegan outreach events per week. We currently hold a Pig Save vigil in Burlington together with Cow Save and Chicken Save vigils in Toronto. We encourage everyone to attend a vigil. The more people who attend, the harder it is for society to ignore our protests of the abhorrent exploitation and cruelty to animals. Attending vigils is a daunting, traumatic, but empowering experience. Please join us. Scroll down for vigil schedule.

Leo Tolstoy defines the duty to bear witness as: “When the suffering of another creature causes you to feel pain, do not submit to the initial desire to flee from the suffering one, but on the contrary, come closer, as close as you can to him who suffers, and try to help him.” – from A Calendar of Wisdom

The LIVE: Love-based Intentional Vegan Experience tour has wrapped up. In their own words:
“In the summer of 2018, we will be visiting at least eight states over two weeks: Indiana, Illinois, Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, South Dakota and Nebraska. Major stops will include Springdale, AR (“poultry capital of the world”); Kansas City, MO; Dodge City, KS (>20% of residents work in two slaughterhouses); Sioux City, IA (home to the largest cattle processor and the soon-to-be biggest pig slaughterhouse in the USA); and Omaha, NE. “

Dead and dying, heavily scarred & dehydrated piggies awaiting murder. A few still stand, a few poke their heads up but there’s no rescue. Due to July 4 celebrations, these individuals will have to wait another day in their hot holding barn outside the massive slaughterhouse in Nebraska (which is festooned with July 4 flags).

Toronto Pig Save started in December 2010, with a promise to the pigs of doing a minimum of three vigils and vegan outreach events each week, all year round. We bear witness as a community of pigs, cows, chickens and other farmed animal victims in slaughterhouse trucks. The animals want us to be present and, with the most pleading eyes, ask for our help when we see them through the portholes of transport trucks. Just as if we were in those horrid trucks, we would want the whole community to be there fighting for our freedom, liberation, rights, and equality. In a way, we are there. All life is one and, “when (wo)men wish to harm others, they really do evil to themselves,” Leo Tolstoy said in his animal rights story “Esarhaddon, King of Assyria”. It’s our positive duty and obligation to act in the present to try to stop the most egregious injustices before us.
“When the suffering of another creature causes you to feel pain, do not submit to the initial desire to flee from the suffering one, but on the contrary, come closer, as close as you can to her who suffers, and try to help her.” – Leo Tolstoy
In seven years, The Save Movement has grown to over 350 Save groups around the world. Our dream is to have regular vigils at every slaughter plant worldwide. We regularly give seed money to new Save groups and require funds for literature, posters, subway ad campaigns ( and vegan outreach events.
Make animal liberation your priority in life! Think of 10 kind things you can do each day and encourage your friends to do the same! Join us and participate in our weekly vigils, start a Save group in your community, and be a regular donor.
