Do you see what I see?
What we do see varies from person to person based on experiences, beliefs, values, education, circumstance, culture, physical abilities, prejudices and more. You see, nothing is as it seems. To see with a clear heart and open mind is indeed the vanguard of our most noble self.
A speech by Edgar’s Mission Founder and Director Pam Ahern. Dedicated to Tommy and all animals who will never know kindness.
An Unexamined Thought…
It is a convenient unexamined thought that labels the animals who are farmed for food and fibre as “farm animals”.
Words by the Bee Gees
Recorded in 1967, the Bee Gees hit song “Words” reflected what one of the Gibb brothers described as the ability of words to “make you happy or sad”.
Animals find us
A question I am often asked is: “How do you find the animals who come to Edgar’s Mission?” The short answer is: I don’t.
They find us.
“Take nothing but memories.
Leave nothing but footprints.
Kill nothing but time.”

A Field of Dreams
Today, as Baarack stands tall atop the grassy field of Edgar’s Mission, he too stands as a beacon of hope. His life, now made bright by the kindness of a stranger, is all he and we could have ever dreamt it to be. His body no longer is burdened by his overgrown fleece, his vision no more is blocked by wool and painful grass seeds, and his hunger and thirst no more are wanting.
