New Zealand: Pigs have had their day in court because of you. Now We Wait for Courts Decision.



Kia ora Mark


Thank you for helping us make history.

We wake today knowing we put everything in to the court case challenging the use of farrowing crates. The past two days have been a rollercoaster for the legal team and for those who joined us for this historic moment, either in the High Court or online. 

The Judge has gone to consider the arguments from both sides and will come back to us with a ruling. We are now anxiously waiting for any updates, and you will all know as soon as we do. We will also post updates here on our website.


Thank you for your support for mother pigs leading up to this case.

Thank you for the petition signatures, for the meetings with your MP, for the emails to government.

Thank you for joining as we stood on the steps of Parliament and handed over the largest petition in five years, for watching us as we presented to the Select Committee. 

Thank you for your generosity and kindness as we worked with the New Zealand Animal Law Association to see this through in the High Court, and as we spoke in front of a Judge for those that do not have a voice. 

Thank you for your kind words, your time, and your donations. Pigs have had their day in court because of you. 

We will be in touch as soon as we hear from the Courts.

Until then, as always – for the pigs,

Debra Ashton
Chief Executive Officer
