WHERE PIGS FLY IS A RESCUE SANCTUARY DEDICATED TO THE SHELTER AND CARE OF FARMED ANIMALS IN NEED. LOCATED IN THE LOWER HUNTER VALLEY, CLOSE TO SYDNEY, WE ARE A NON-PROFIT, REGISTERED CHARITY.

Our Mission

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 work of rescuing, rehabilitating and caring for farmed animals from cruelty, abuse and neglect. We are also committed to education. We passionately believe knowledge is the power to change the way our society views and treats farmed animals.
