Last weekend I went to the Ringling Brothers Protest in Ontario. I was only able to attend one day of the 4 or 5 days but it was my first protest so I really wanted to make it at least … Continue reading
I spent this past weekend at FARM’s Animal Rights National Conference in Los Angeles. It was AMAZING! I’ll give you a recap of my weekend possibly split into two posts. I couldn’t make it out until Friday evening so I … Continue reading
This is from the fundraising page:
The record breaking freeze has been wreaking havoc on the sanctuary.
The main well and cistern for all the barns froze, broke, and then flooded the well house up to the electrical outlets, which then fried the electrical system for all the barns.
We’ve been working round the clock in 22 below zero temperatures to truck water up to the animals, run back-up electricity to the barns, and do everything in our power to keep the 200+ rescued residents safe through this unprecedented arctic cold we’re experiencing.
Sanctuary operating costs usually triple in the winter months, but this past week alone will account for a tenfold increase in expenses.
We will NOT let the animals down, but we urgently need your help so we can pay for all of the additional services, repairs, vet bills, and other emergency measures that need to be taken.
Help if you are able!

For years I have wanted to visit an animal sanctuary and I was fortunate enough to visit Animal Place in Grassy Valley, CA a few months ago where I met some wonderful people and wonderful animals. Here I am being friends with Aden the sheep.
Today I was able to go to Farm Sanctuary‘s Celebration for the Turkeys! Here is a photo post about the day:
This turkey wanted to kill me:
Goats and sheep were the first friends of the day:
Refreshments and snacks after checking in:
After check in there was a lot of free time to roam the sanctuary and go in and out of all the animals pens.
This is Jimmy sleeping:
This guy was having some alone time:
Oh Jimmy, you so crazy:
Gene Baur stalking:
Getting ready for the turkeys:
They were shy at first:
This one was NOT shy:
The kiddos loved feeding the turkeys:
I fed Gable (not this turkey). I was kinda scared at first but turns out turkeys are not scary. She was really camera shy so I took a picture with the one instead:
This goat was sleeping on the sheep’s butt. SLEEPING…ON HIS BUTT.
Oh just a couple of pigs sleeping with thier tongues out:
I forgot her name! UGH.
I don’t know how this all fit in my body:
Chloe Coscarelli, vegan chef from Cupcake Wars:
Silent auction Vaute Couture dress a REALLY wanted. If you don’t know about this brand you should:
Author Melanie Joy gave a 30 minute lecture and was so inspiring. Sometimes as a vegan I think I know everything (am I right, vegans!? haha). I have seen her book, Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows, around a bunch of times and thought, “what’s that going to tell me that I don’t already know?” But she had such a fresh perspective on things and I think she should really get a side gig as a stand up comedian. I am definitely going to pick up her book and keep my eye on what she’s up to.
And of course…DESSERT! CHOMP CHOMP CHOMP
I encourage anyone and everyone to go, vegans and non vegans alike! It was great for families too (although I did see a kid chasing a terrified sheep, but his dad quickly caught him!) I am so glad I made it out to this. It was perfect weather such a nice day spent with the animals and to top it all off there was no traffic!
