The Animal Save Movement is a global organisation which holds peaceful vigils outside slaughter houses. The key objective of Animal Save is to ‘bear witness’ to farm animals in their final moments before they enter the slaughter house to be killed.
There are nearly 700 Animal Save groups on five continents, and those attending vigils carry the message that we should have mercy on animals we raise for food, many of whom suffer ceaselessly their entire short lives. We can only really help the animals by stopping eating them altogether, and adopting a compassionate vegan diet.
