Charlotte the Pig - My Inspiration for Dinner Music

I have never forgotten that hot summer day on Toronto Island playing flute for Charlotte.  She may not be with us anymore,  but there are so many farmed animals who deserve to see daylight, hear music and live free.  Dinner Music is dedicated to all the voiceless animals who need our help.

Your Help is Very Important

Humane treatment is essential.

Our mission is to share the emotional lives of farmed animals. Animals did not choose a life of being born and raised to be killed. From birth to their final day of slaughter, life is cruel - no sunshine, no music, no freedom to move, and unfair and inhumane treatment.

The plight of factory-farmed animals is horrific and tragic.

One thing animals have in common with human animals is fear. Cows cry when their babies are taken from them at several weeks. Race horses and leisure horses may end up on the dinner table. Crowded chickens on slaughter trucks suffer beyond our imagination. Pigs have nausea and car sickness like humans and their transport can be over a day without food or water. Many animals arrive dead, injured or helpless at the slaughterhouse.

We will raise awareness about the inhumane treatment of farmed animals. Together we can  make a difference. Your donations are gratefully accepted to bring this documentary film into reality.

Thank you in advance, from their unheard voices.
