Did you know that cows, pigs, chickens, lambs, and turkeys have personalities? I hope you’ll consider meeting farmed animals who you may never have thought of as more than food. One great way to do this is to visit a farm animal sanctuary. Here’s a link to some, but not all, sanctuaries to help get you started. You might also want to search a “microsanctuary” in your area.
If you have the opportunity to get to know any of these 2 and 4 legged pals by spending extended periods of time with them, you will really be in for a treat!
Below are some of my sanctuary friends, with links to their websites, as well as a list of Dirty Snouts™ donation recipients.
DIRTY SNOUT of the MONTH!
Sweet Princess was rescued at the age of 14 years old from abhorrent living conditions at a backyard breeding operation. Having lived her whole life in a totally dark stall, she is blind and was malnourished. Since her arrival at Arthur’s Acres Animal Sanctuary in March, Princess has made remarkable progress, going from untrusting and shy to becoming fast friends with the other animals, who are all fortunate to be living the life they deserve. She also continues to feel more and more confortable with people every day! What a girl!
