Cow Save – Caroline Wong

The Save Movement ( volunteers offer water, love, and comfort and use photos and video to bear witness to animals’ suffering.

Founded in 2016, LA Animal Save is the largest chapter of the global Save Movement (650 chapters across 60 countries). The Save Movement bears witness to the suffering and oppression of pigs, cows, chickens and other farmed animals en route to slaughter.

Using a love-based, community-organizing approach, volunteer animal rights advocates hold regular, peaceful vigils at slaughterhouses, live markets, and factory farms in order to be present in the face of animal injustice, raise awareness about the plight of farmed animals, and continue to build a grassroots animal justice movement based on the principles of animal equality and freedom.

In Los Angeles, multiple celebrities, including Rooney Mara, Joaquin Phoenix, Moby, Dylan McDermott, and Craig Robinson often attend the vigils.  An interesting fact – three of the police officers who have been posted to supervise the vigils in the last two years have chosen to stop eating meat!
