This weekend, “pig races”—in which animals are forced to run around a track lined with a screaming crowd—are scheduled to be held at the 12th Annual Super Pet Expo in Chantilly, Virginia. Social, playful, and loyal, these highly sensitive animals enjoy communicating with each other, making nests, relaxing in the sun, and cooling off in the mud. Being carted to and fro and subjected to loud noises and boisterous crowds is an unfair and terrifying ordeal for these animals. PETA has asked event organizers to replace pig races with any number of humane alternatives, but our request has been ignored.

These pigs need your help today!

Please join us in urging Super Pet Expo to cancel these cruel events. And forward this information to everyone you know!
