Those of you who know me in real life know that I’m absolutely in love with cows. That’s right, cows. I’m endlessly fascinated by them and I think they’re udderly adorable (ba-doom-sh). I’m so proud to be able to support organizations like Farm Sanctuary. Farm Sanctuary rescues and rehabilitates abused livestock and farm animals and houses them on ranch shelters in California and New York. I’m actually thinking about taking a trip to the New York shelter this summer to visit the animals.
Farm Sanctuary is celebrating its 25th anniversary, and holding a membership drive through March 31st. They have so far raised about $20,000 and their goal is $25,000. If you’d like to help, please make an online donation on their website.
Here’s one shocking story of animal abuse, an example of why organizations like Farm Sanctuary are so important:
When the patrol officer walked up to the car he’d pulled over, he heard what he thought was the sound of a baby crying coming from the trunk. What he found was shocking:
Inside the dark trunk was a small black and white goat who had been hog-tied, but was still alive and struggling for freedom.
This poor animal had been locked in this suffocating space for two days without any food or water. He was malnourished and terrified. But because of your support, Farm Sanctuary was able to welcome this sweet goat to our California Shelter, nurse him back to health and offer all the gentle touches and kindness he craved.
We named him Noel.
