Pigs are highly intelligent animals that have been dealt a bad blow, as most people prefer to think of them as “somethings” rather than the dynamic someone’s that they are. Sadly, this means that most pigs only ever get to experience life in factory farms where they are subjected to horrific conditions and abuse for the duration of their short lives. For creatures that can learn their names and do tricks just like dogs, this is no life at all!

Thankfully, there are kind people out there who are working to change how we think about pigs. Just take Edgar’s Mission Farm Sanctuary for example.

In this video, we see Pam Ahern, the founder of Edgar’s Mission giving little Squeak the piglet a nice warm bubble bath! In their eyes, Squeak is a wonderful animal worthy of respect and love. Seeing this little rescued piggie wriggle in his bath, we can’t help but to agree!

Edgar’s Mission Farm Sanctuary is a 153-acre sanctuary for abused and neglected farm animals located in Victoria Australia’s beautiful Macedon mountains. It is home to a large number of domestic animals, including deer, sheep, horses, goats, cows, chickens and pigs, who have often been rescued from horrific factory farm conditions. With the hard work and dedication of their kind staff, the people at Edgar’s Mission Farm Sanctuary are a living example of their wonderful mission statement: “If we could live happy and healthy lives without harming others… why wouldn’t we?”
