In some countries it is normal to kill and eat dogs. In others, it is normal to kill and eat pigs.
No animal wants to die for your meal.
In Australia, nearly 5 million pigs are raised for slaughter every year.
There is a better way.
Sometimes it can feel hard, especially if the people you spend Christmas with are still eating animals. But when you remember animals just like Woody and Holly, and how thankful they are to live their lives in freedom, it becomes well worth it.
A compassionate Christmas is not only about what is on your plate, but also about the presents you choose to buy or not buy, and the good you can do for others with these choices.
Consider giving kind gifts at Christmas that are free from animal materials and ingredients and free from animal testing. Consider giving gifts that support an animal sanctuary, a charity or a local creator!
