MEET THE ANIMALS

There are many different farmed animals who call Where Pigs Fly home from hens to horses to cows to pigs. Most have been rescued from cases of abuse, neglect or abandonment.

With your help we can make a difference for the millions of farmed animals who have no voice. Their unique, individual stories raise awareness towards the suffering that continues unabated in animal agriculture.
