Every month The Cruelty Free Shop helps an animal group fundraise by featuring a rescued animal and their sanctuary as our Charity of the Month - more information below....
Tiger was rescued by a kind worker from a particularly dilapidated, small scale intensive piggery. As one of the smallest piglets, considered a runt, Tiger would have been killed by blunt force trauma, the standard method for disposing of the smallest, frailest piglets who are considered too costly to raise. Tiger was spared this fate, but even so, had already endured having her tail cut off, notches taken out of her tiny ears, and her teeth clipped, all without anaesthetic.
Tiger found sanctuary with the lovely team at Little Oak Sanctuary and from the moment she arrived, they realised that she was one strong minded lady, full of personality, the joy of life and the wonder of her daily experiences - digging for roots in the soil, wallowing, swimming, sleeping in a soft bed of straw. Tigers favourite activities include playing "hippopotopig" in the dam on a hot day, building & decorating nests, and dancing, should the mood strike her.
Little Oak Sanctuary is a registered charity near Canberra that offers sanctuary to animals in need while promoting compassion for all animals through education and cruelty-free living. They are reliant on donations to continue their wonderful work for animals so please consider adding a donation for Tiger and Little Oak Sanctuary to your next Cruelty Free Shop order.
