When Pam Ahern saw the surprise in people's faces when they met her pig companion Edgar and saw how smart, affectionate, and curious he was, she realized that for people to fall in love with farm animals, they simply needed to meet them. That's how Edgar's Mission was born, and since then, the sanctuary has provided loving care to thousands of animals rescued from the cruelty and certain death of factory farming. Even more than that, Pam and the residents of Edgar's have opened the hearts of so many, showing people just how similar farm animals are to the animals we love and keep in our homes.
For anyone who has ever gotten to know a curious sheep, a cheeky goat, or a loving pig as an individual, the mission statement of Pam's wonderful sanctuary rings so true: “If we could live happy and healthy lives without harming others, why wouldn’t we?” Thank you for your incredible work, Pam, and we look forward to featuring you as part of the Unbound Project soon!
