Edgar’s Mission’s Little Ray of Sunshine!

Edgar’s Mission is a not for profit Farm Sanctuary in Australia that seeks to create a humane and just world for humans and non-humans. It was founded by Pam Ahern and named after her first rescued pig, Edgar.

Edgar Alan Pig, aka “the pig who started it all” sadly passed away shortly after his 7th birthday party in April 2010. Edgar, a gentle giant, touched so many people and was an amazing ambassador for pigs and farmed animals everywhere. He is missed beyond words – but his mission continues…

“Always cheerful and bright, Little Miss Sunshine tries to cheer up everyone around her and is everyone’s best friend.”

These are the words penned by Roger Hargreaves to describe Little Miss Sunshine in his book of the same name from the Mr Men and Little Miss series. However, these words could well have been written about the Mission’s own Little Miss Sunshine, for so true they have turned out to be.

But this little chicken doesn’t just have a sunny personality… She’s also very clever! Not convinced? Click on her lovely photo below to find out:
