Pledge to leave these beings off your plates
Little Oak Sanctuary currently cares directly for 7 turkeys and 11 pigs, and advocates for millions more who are sadly exploited in farms across Australia.
This Christmas, spare a soul and make peace for pigs by pledging to leave these and other animals off your plate - for Christmas, and for good.
You can help us support our flock of turkeys and herd of pigs through a one off sponsorship of them.

Turkeys have incredible eyesight, with a range of 270 degrees and full colour - they can see better than humans.
Turkeys have beards. A modified feather grows from the chest of males. The longer the beard the tougher the tom - Bruce is boss!
Talkative and inquisitive
Turkeys have at least 20 distinct vocalisations including chirrups, purrs and of course, gobbling!
Watch a turkey closely and you'll see them change colours! The necks of turkeys change based on their frame of mind.

Pigs are curious and insightful animals who are widely accepted as being smarter than young children of at least 3 years of age, dogs, and even some primates.
Pigs are very social animals. They snuggle close to one another, and prefer to sleep nose-to-nose. Much like humans, they also dream.
Pigs don't sweat! Instead to cool down they wallow in mud, which also keeps them safe from insects and the sun.
Piglets can recognise their own names at 2 weeks old, and Sows have even been known to 'sing' to their young whilst nursing.
Pigs communicate constantly with each other, and like turkeys have more than 20 different vocalisations.
Just like the dogs we share our homes with, pigs wag their tails when they are happy and content.
Turkeys love music, and have been known to gobble along happily with songs.
Turkey language is complex. Mothers use a special whistle when babies get lost that say “Here I am, where are you?”
Turkeys love affection and many welcome being patted, scratched and hugged, often reacting with a purr of contentment.

A pig's squeal can be as loud as 115 decibels – that’s 3 decibels higher than the sound of a supersonic airliner.
Pigs are sprinters — they can run really fast for a short distance. A domestic pig can run at speeds of around 17 km/h, and wild pigs can run even faster.
Pigs are naturally very clean animals, choosing a bathroom well away from where they sleep and eat, if given the chance.

Pigs, especially as piglets, love to play. Spinning, running and rolling with their friends brings them great joy.
