Animal Save Campaigns

Slaughter Free Cities campaign

Imagine a world without slaughterhouses. Imagine entire major cities like Toronto, New York, Los Angeles, Mumbai and Barcelona outlawing the murder of all animals within city limits, setting the stage for more cities, and eventually entire states to follow suit.

Most urban residents are unaware that slaughterhouses even exist in the heart of our cities. The short-term goal of the Slaughter-Free Cities movement such as Slaughter Free NYC, is to raise awareness on the mass-scale animal cruelty that is taking place in nearly every major city and to inspire those to adopt a slaughter-free, vegan lifestyle. The larger strategic goal is to pass laws against the murder of animals within city limits, effectively shutting down all slaughterhouses.

Our Slaughter-Free University initiative, starting in Toronto, aims to push universities to enact slaughter-free food policies as a response to animal rights concerns, the climate emergency, and for the benefit of students' health. "Slaughter-Free U of T" is staging food giveaways and outreach events to help students to transition to a cruelty-free lifestyle and activate students as activists and lobbyists to change City Hall policies.

Wake Up World campaign

Wake Up World are special global weeks of action (for example, at year end holidays) in which chapters around the world invite new vegans and nonvegans to animal vigils, including their families and friends.

Ditch Dairy, Save Lives

Animal Save chapters hold vigils outside of dairy farms for the victims of the dairy industry. Groups also hold vegan outreach events outside of factories and establishments retailing large amounts of dairy products. Our goal is to end the cruelty and exploitation inherent in the dairy industry and encourage a transition to plant based milks.

Fish Save

Fish are the most exploited animals on the planet. More fish are killed by humans each year than all other animals combined. And just like all animals, fish are sentient beings who want to live. They have emotions and feel pain. Fish feel pain when a hook goes through their mouth in the same way that a person would do if they got a hook through their lip. Once caught fish usually suffocate to death which can take several minutes. Even if released, fish often die of infection to their mouths or emotional trauma.

Fish Save chapters around the world hold vigils at fish markets or supermarkets that sell live fish and other sites of marine life exploitation such as aquariums.

Ban live export

Every year, millions of live cows, sheep, goats and other animals are shipped around the world to be slaughtered in the destination countries. These animals are 'living cargo' and are valued only for the flesh that their bodies produce. There can be 7,000 to 30,000 animals per medium capacity ship and as high as 120,000 sheep or 25,000 cows for the largest carriers. The sea journey can take up to a month depending on their destination and the speed of the ship. Many animals don't survive the trip and are thrown out to sea – some of them still alive. Many get injured because of the movement of the ship and because they're so close to each other – breaking horns, legs, getting blinded by other's horns or fall sick due to the presence of accumulated ammonia inside the compartment. The animals all urinate and defecate in the same spot and their bodies get covered with feces which makes their body temperature rise. Many will have fever, diarrhea and vomit.

We hold port animal vigils to bear witness and document this atrocity. Without footage the public would never know what happens to these animals. Our campaign aims to ban live export by putting pressure on governments to outlaw this industry.
