The dedication, courage, and compassion shown by Toronto Pig Save volunteers never ceases to amaze and inspire me. Week after week, they hit the streets outside a local slaughterhouse. For hours, they wait by a traffic light, approaching every stopped truck full of 6-month-old pigs en route to slaughter and, when possible, giving the scared, confused pigs a loving touch or a gesture of kindness before they are driven around the corner and killed.

In addition to comforting the pigs, they carefully document the expressions of the pigs and the conditions of the trucks. These photographs are such a valuable resource to those of us striving to spread awareness about the suffering and needless slaughter of these sweet babies. 

For more photos form last week’s vigil, see the album here, and for more information about Toronto Pig Save in general, visit their Facebook page.
