Giving Pigs water

    I love this idea. We can also bring our own water bottles and I have a large water cooler that I take to swim meets. I would not mind buying some more for this. My schedule is nutty, but I surely would love to participate if available!

    Hi Ann, I made you host of this so you can add and edit as needed. If anyone else wants to cohost with Ann! Please let me know and I'll add you so you can work together. I think this would be more appropriate for Animal Action Network (AAN), since it is an activism meetup, so please feel free to post on there as well. A Vegan Life is more social and diet related (although for some of us, veganism is a huge part of animal rights), so I made it so it won't send reminders to this group. I did leave it on the calendar, though. On AAN, auto reminders will be ok. Maybe a company with those big water tanks on trucks will contribute a truck with fresh water and a driver for refilling water bottles, in order to avoid opening a lot of new plastic bottles. Just a thought for our environment. Our nonprofit will provide leaflets to have handy for folks who have questions about the action. Thank you, everyone!

    Great idea! I see these transport trucks all the time. Any truck stop off 170 or near Greeley...

      Yeah I'm up in Evans and see them all the time - it's heart breaking.

    Maybe just picking a route we know the transport trucks use (I see a lot on 34 and 85) and just hanging out by the red lights? I'm sure we would have to check with local laws to see if we'd be breaking any laws too.

    I'm with all of you. No idea how to do, but ready to help. The video just made me cry.

    Hi Ann, what an amazing video! It would be a great thing to do. I hope someone in our group knows where and how to get close enough to a truck like this. In all my years, I have never seen a truck with pigs, only cows, and always moving. I wouldn't know where to start to do something like this. Anyone have any ideas?

      No Sorry, I've never seen any trucks with pigs,cows goats, chickens or even horses It is a wonderful idea, though! They need our compassionate efforts. It guess it would be like volunteering at a kill shelter, you know their fate, but still want to ease their life. Let me know what you find out. okay? Thanks!

    Since I work most days during most weeks, I may be spotty, but would love to participate if and when this can get set up. Please keep us advised! Thanks!

    Yeah I as well have no idea how to start something like this - I think it's a beautiful lovely idea. I have seen a pig truck once or twice - I wouldn't mind giving cows water and some petting/love as well. Hopefully someone knows how to organize this.
