We support organizations and individual community members to work towards animal liberation. We are proud to support these organizations financially & physically (when possible). If you would like to volunteer please check out more information about the organization and how to get involved or donate. In addition to these organizations, we would like to give recognition to the individual animal sanctuaries and volunteers who help make this change possible. A donation of your time and/or money is greatly appreciated by these individuals and will make our dreams into a reality. A great way to make sure your donation is used properly is to donate directly to the registered animal charity of your choice.
Organizations We Support:
1. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is the largest animal rights organization in the world, with more than 6.5 million members and supporters. PETA focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: in the food industry, in the clothing trade, in laboratories, and in the entertainment industry. We also work on a variety of other issues, including the cruel killing of rodents, birds, and other animals who are often considered “pests” as well as cruelty to domesticated animals. PETA works through public education, cruelty investigations, research, animal rescue, legislation, special events, celebrity involvement, and protest campaigns. In addition to peta, we also support their peta2 action team initiative. Read more about them from their website by clicking here.
2. Direct Action Everywhere (DxE). “Nonviolent direct action seeks to create such a crisis and foster such a tension that a community which has constantly refused to negotiate is forced to confront the issue. It seeks so to dramatize the issue that it can no longer be ignored.” (Martin Luther King, Jr., Letter from a Birmingham Jail). To read more about DxE please click here.
3. Anonymous for the Voiceless is an animal rights organization that specializes in street activism. Over 4,010 demonstrations in 729 cities worldwide, we’ve convinced at least 216,102 bystanders to take veganism seriously. Through the use of standard practice footage, we expose to the public what is intentionally hidden from them when it comes to animal exploitation. Combining this with a value-based sales approach and resource literature, we fully equip the public with everything they need in switching to a vegan lifestyle. We hold an abolitionist stance on animal exploitation. Read more about them by clicking here.
4. The Save Movement is a worldwide network of groups bearing witness to farmed animals, advocating veganism, & promoting love-based grassroots activism.
The Save Outreach Squad (SOS) is a branch of the Toronto Save Movement. The Save Outreach Squad grew out of a need bring awareness about the plight of the animals slaughtered at Toronto’s local slaughterhouses to the streets beyond those slaughterhouses where most people do their very best to avoid thinking about where their food comes from. Through powerful images and literature we invite the public to bear witness to the truth and join us in the fight for animal liberation. In addition to exposing Toronto’s slaughterhouses, we organize a variety of outreach events, aimed at bringing awareness to other animal exploitation issues. We often build these actions around special events and holidays. Our events are designed to be peaceful, non-confrontational, and educational. We have weekly and monthly events as well as special events.
Toronto Pig Save (TPS) exists to erect glass walls at slaughterhouses, encourage plant-based vegan living, and bear witness during vigils. TPS and iVegan.ca relaunched the “Why love one… but eat the other” TTC campaign, and TPS also launched the Climate Vegan campaign to educate people on the devastating environmental impact of animal agriculture.
