ABOUT WHERE PIGS FLY
Where Pigs Fly Farm Sanctuary provides care and shelter to farmed animals in need. Set on 100 acres in the lower Hunter Valley in New South Wales, our residents are free to be themselves, living the life every animal deserves – free from harm and suffering.
Driven by a simple philosophy that all animals should be treated with compassion and respect, our mission is two-fold. At the core, is our hands-on rescue work of farmed animals from cruelty, abuse and abandonment. We are also committed to education. There is significant disconnect in society with the animal food we eat. Out of sight, out of mind. We passionately believe knowledge is the power to change the way our society views and treats farmed animals.
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
Our passion for animal welfare and to help end the cruelty and suffering farmed animals continue to endure is our driving force. A life-long ambition, Where Pigs Fly Farm Sanctuary was created as a safe haven for rescued farm animals who literally have nowhere else to go and to also raise awareness of animal suffering and cruelty within the animal agricultural industries.
The majority of farmed animals in this country, and worldwide, are stuck in the horrific farming system that exists today. Rather than repeatedly saying “someone should do something” we decided we should do something. We saw that the farm sanctuary movement was growing and was increasingly effective in educating and influencing the broader community. We decided to be a part of that and took the big leap. The sanctuary movement represents to us the potential to recreate a positive paradigm for our relationship with animals. Farm animal sanctuaries such as Where Pigs Fly gives us the platform to show people “this is how it could be”. Farmed animals living in peace, free from harm and suffering. Worldwide, we are in an increasing wave of social consciousness surrounding animal rights. We hope to play a small part in making that wave bigger with all you good people out there. For the animals.
