A cause that had always been close to her heart – that of animals. With the eponymous Edgar Alan Pig trotting by her side both headed down a path they could never have imagined, and both lives were forever changed. Today Edgar’s Mission is home to more than 400 formerly farmed animals. As ambassadors for their not so fortunate kind, it is through the telling of their stories, they show the world they are all unique individuals, with personalities and emotions that can touch the hardest of hearts. Moreover, they remind us all that a kinder world is possible, and every choice we make can be a contribution to that goal. “If we could live happy and healthy lives without harming others, why wouldn’t we?”
