TCS World Day for Farmed Animals Event October 2nd
Toronto Chicken Save held an all-day, twelve hour vigil for the chickens in honour of the World Day for Farmed Animals. Multiple “die-ins” were held where the activists symbolically lay down on the ground outside of the slaughterhouse to represent the murder of the 200 000 animal persons that occurs each day at “Maple Leaf Poultry”. One of these demonstrations was positioned around the chalk portraits done by the talented Jo Lalonde of two chickens that are currently living on sanctuary. A die-in was also done outside of “St. Helen’s Meatpackers” cow slaughterhouse after a march took place between the two killing facilities. A worker disclosed that it bothers him when pregnant dairy cows come into the slaugherhouse because if the fetus is old enough, it has to be shot in the head. This is just one of the many horrors that occur in these places, for there is no humane way to take the life of someone who wants, and will fight to live.
Please go vegan for the chickens who are only 38 days old and still peeping when they arrive at the slaughterhouse.

What he said.
As explained previously…my husband and I rescued this adorable abandoned kitten. He was 9 days old when we found him and two siblings in a box in our garage.
He was 10 days old when his mom failed to take him with her to an undisclosed location with her other kittens. As darkness fell and the temperature dropped, we made the only choice we could — to bring him inside. Now we are hand-raising him.
