Who are Devon Animal Save?
DAS was set-up in early 2016 as an extension of the current world wide Save Movement.
The original founders of this movement, the Canadian group Toronto Pig Save, formed in 2010 and started organising peaceful vigils at slaughterhouses in their city to bear witness to the animals in their final moments and to help expose the public to the realities of their food choices. This model has now been duplicated across the globe with nearly 100 groups now present worldwide, including around 24 purely in the UK . Devon Animal Save holds vigils across our local county as well as supporting others across the UK in their actions.
“When the suffering of another creature causes you to feel pain, do not submit to the initial desire to flee from the suffering one, but on the contrary, come closer, as close as you can to her who suffers, and try to help her.” -Leo Tolstoy, A Calendar of Wisdom
The DAS group have also extended their activities to include regular outreach and activism events promoting the Vegan lifestyle including outreach stalls, public displays & protests, college & university lectures, online activism and investigations. DAS looks to promote animal equality through peaceful and educational means.
