Toronto Cow Save is a sister organisation to Toronto Pig Save.
Toronto Cow Save’s mission is to erect glass walls at Toronto area slaughterhouses in order to encourage people to choose vegan, protect the environment, and support farm sanctuaries. We are working for a just transition for workers as we adjust our food economy to a local, organic, and plant-based diet.
There are two large cow slaughterhouses in Toronto: “St. Helen’s Meat Packers” and Ryding-Regency slaughterhouses, killing about a thousand cows and calves daily. We focus on bearing witness at these massive slaughterhouses, while educating people about compassion for ALL animals, and promoting veganism.
"Bearing witness is the beginning of awareness. You see realities by being present. The distressed animals are here and now right before your eyes. You refuse to turn a blind eye! You look, you come closer, and you try to help the individuals before you." - Anita Krajnc
