Congratulations to Farm Sanctuary’s Northern California Shelter: www.farmsanctuary.org
Here’s what Tara has to say about this fearless organization:
“I’ve visited Farm Sanctuary several times and am deeply moved by their commitment to provide abused and discarded factory farm animals a safe and peaceful environment to live the remainder of their lives.”
A little more info:
“Farm Sanctuary was founded in 1986 when Farm Sanctuary President and Co-Founder Gene Baur rescued Hilda from a stockyard dead pile. Since that time, we’ve met, loved, and provided refuge for thousands of animals. Many people see two classes of animals: The animals with whom we share our homes, and everyone else. But other animals are not different in any way that matters morally from the dogs and cats with whom so many of us share our lives. At Farm Sanctuary, we share our lives with farm animals — chickens, turkeys, pigs, goats, sheep, ducks, geese, and cattle. And we can tell you from personal experience that farm animals have the same range of personalities and interests as cats and dogs.”
