All Mother's Day

Let's Be Kind to ALL Mothers
Mothers come in all shapes, sizes and species, yet when it comes to their babies, they love them just the same. Please join us for a kind Mother’s Day for ALL mothers.

Did you know that pigs sing to their babies?

And that hens talk to their chicks before they’re born, and cows carry their babies for nine months, just like us?

Sadly for farmed animals, these loving bonds are broken all too often due to outdated practices and laws.

A kinder world is possible, and it begins with you.

Get inspired by their stories, and learn how to eat and give kind this Mother’s Day.

Take a closer look and there are so many reasons why we should care.

The Truth Behind Dairy

Like many, we grew up with the romantic notion that dairy products were wholesome and good, and indeed they are if you are a baby calf.

Cows do not simply produce milk; they are mammals and will only produce milk for their babies. Once born, the dairy industry dictates the babies are taken away from their mothers and the milk is taken for human consumption.

So what happens to the babies?

The Truth Behind Bacon, Ham & Pork

Did you know pigs are smarter than dogs? They have engaging personalities, enjoy good food and sunshine, seek out companionship, love their babies and desperately try to protect their own lives.

Yet pigs are not protected from acts of cruelty as are our beloved dogs and cats. This is simply because society has determined a different “use” for them.

The Truth Behind Lamb

Like humans, it is widely proven that mother sheep bond immediately with their newborns. They also know the individual odour of their own babies.

Far from mindless followers, sheep are highly social with sophisticated emotional skills that can recognise human and animal faces.
