Have a Heart, Show an Animal Some Love

In keeping with my Valentine’s theme (it’s almost here!!!), I wanted to talk to you today about animal love.  It should come as no surprise that, as a vegan, I love animals… and not in the way that got your Uncle JimBob arrested back in ’83, perv.  I’m talking bonded pairs and lifetime partners in the wonderful world of farm animals.  For some help, I turn to my fave of the day: Farm Sanctuary.

This amazing organization rescues animals from abuse, neglect, and just plain horrific conditions, and they’ve been doing so for 25 years!  They not only give these incredibly intelligent animals a fantastic place to live out their lives, they also educate us stupid humans to help prevent such cruelty from happening in the future.  Now, that’s love! I’ve stayed in the Country Cabin at their California shelter and I can tell you from experience what a magical place it is.  If you ever get a chance to visit (they have another location in NY State), go.  You can meet animals like these loving guys and gals:

Adorable right?  Maybe this Valentine’s Day you could give Farm Sanctuary some love of your own and make a donation to help them with their work.  After all, nothing is sexier than compassion.
