🐔💞 Meet Neptune! 😍 They alle deserve to be loved! @chickendvm -@veganthinking NEPTUNE is an ex-battery hen who was rescued by Dreamer’s Hen Rescue (DHR) just minutes before she was to be slaughtered, at an abattoir (slaughterhouse) in Australia. When DHR arrived at the facility, they immediately began saving as many hens as they could. All of a sudden, DHR heard a sad cry from one of the hens and lots of commotion. They start to run over to where they heard the sound and sadly witnessed how one sad little hen was being dragged brutally by her legs, with her delicate head smashing against the ground with every step. DHR begged them to please stop and to hand the traumatized bird over to them. Thankfully they agreed without a fuss. DHR immediately collected the bird from the workers and held her in their arms. Neptune was pretty traumatized from the whole ordeal and it was obvious that she had sustained multiple injuries. Besides Neptune, DHR saved 113 other souls that afternoon. After eighteen months of living in a tiny cage with the sole purpose of producing eggs.. .

Introducing: Ham!!!! (Full name is Abraham Lincoln). We rescued Ham a little over a year ago and he’s big personality has brightened our lives 🙂. When we recused him, the poor little guy was so skinny, you could feel his spine. Now, he’s a plump, spoiled little eggplant who gets a constant supply of hay (and any vegetable his little heart desires).
One of the most common questions we get asked is “how much does it cost for us to operate monthly?” Let’s talk about JUST feeding everyone (not straw for bedding, medical bills, and additional infrastructure costs like housing and fencing). Just pig feed and hay costs $4100 each month to feed our 236 pigs. That’s just a baseline .... that number doesn’t include specialty feed for our special needs pigs, or supplements to help provide additional dietary support to pigs like Jasmine, Amelia, and the Caldwell pigs. Those extra essentials bring our total to $4500-$5000 each month. The way we are trying to support our monthly feed bill is through patreon.com/ctpr which allows you to sign up for a monthly donation. There are several tiers starting as low as $1, and in exchange you’ll get access to exclusive content. So far, our AMAZING 189 dedicated patrons are raising $1731 for us each month!! Our goal is to try to end the month at $2000. The cool thing about Patreon is that it shows how even $1 or $5 donations add up and make an impact. We have a $16 tier which buys one bag of feed and really helps chip away at the 225 bags we need each month. The money we get from Patreon is life saving and we’re so grateful for it as it provides the buffer we’ve needed for our recent medical emergencies. Please check out our patreon (link in bio) if you haven’t already. And if you can, sign up for any amount to help us get to $2000 monthly by the end of March. Also, if you’re already a patron please let everyone know in the comments! ❤️ #marchto2k#pigsofinstagram#friendsnotfood#vegan#animalsanctuary#patreon#donations
Each year we take on two new companies, at no charge, who have the goal of making the world a better place. This amazing pig, #faiththemiraclepig , was the sole survivor of a power outage at a concentrated animal feeding operation or #cafo where over a thousand other pigs froze to death this winter. She is now the spokespig for a new #sanctuary for #pigs that hopes to change the world and this is her logo and first character mockup! #communityovercompetition#pigrescue#mmdandco
This little ram lamb came under our care this afternoon. He was admitted to the hospital where he will stay overnight, and possibly through the week. He had a rough start having been born on a slaughterhouse floor yesterday morning. He did not have the opportunity to spend time with his mother. Thanks to a concerned worker and animal rescue volunteers, he was removed from the warehouse, and ultimately arrived here. Upon release from the hospital, he will spend some time indoors until I feel he is ready for our new barn pen where he will be able to see and talk to the other babies. After quarantine and a good health checkup, he will be introduced outdoors. If you wish to contribute towards his care, contributions with the note "lamb" will be designated toward his outpatient medications and formula. Paypal: firstname.lastname@example.org Most of all, tonight, and in the coming days, this little boy needs your thoughts and prayers 💛 #animalsanctuary#lambs
Yet another happy ending for an animal once destined for death 🐂Meet “Major Deegan”...the 8 month old bull calf that escaped and was stopping traffic in the Bronx on the Major Deegan Highway earlier today! @nypd highway patrol wrangled the calf and brought him to @nycacc . He since has been rescued by Mike and is now safe at @skylands_sanctuary - check out their page for updates! There are about 80 storefront slaughterhouses around NYC - where animals are shipped in from factory farms, packed into tiny spaces, and killed right in front of you for “meat”. This baby - despite never knowing what it was like to move about freely and experience kindness and love - KNEW that he didn’t want to die and had the instinct to run for his life!! #compassion#nyc#cows#vegetarian#meatless#bethechange#nypd#life#healthyeating#happyending#animalsanctuary#skylands#bronx#news#calf#march#live#love#laugh#newyorkcity

Tengo una hermosa noticia que contarles!!! MORA VA A PODER SER LIBERADA!!! Mora llegó a mí con una fractura del ala en un lugar bastante jodido, fue atendida por una veterinaria 3 días después de su fractura (las aves sueldan MUY rapido por lo que los vendajes tienen que ser hechos el mismo día) y su diagnostico era que, si sobrevivía, no iba a volver a volar. Luego de unos cuantos meses empezó con pequeños saltos hacia sillas o jaulas, después desde ahi saltaba a algun palo bajito y así susesivamente, hasta que la empezamos a ver haciendo vuelos cortitos y a baja altura Hoy en dia no solo vuela alto, si no que con bastante entrenamiento, que tuvo estas ultimas semanas, también gano mucha resistencia durante el vuelo!! Su ala aún sigue en una mala posición, pero eso no le impidió volar ni ser libre ♥️ Mañana por la mañana se dará la liberación de ella junto con Boni (un gorrión) en un nucleo zoológico de Saladillo, donde tendrán asegurada agua y comida para toda su vida
Is it rude to play with your food if you're having an awesome time?? Angelo and nearly all of the chimps are experts at making "chow wads" out of their daily protein biscuits. They shove all the chow they can into their mouths and use water to make a mash, forming it into a nice huge wad that they snack off of. This behavior is seen in the wild with everything from fruit to leaves, and helps make their snack easier to eat. It may not be considered great table manners to us, but you have to admire that craftsmanship!
A Frog Song Farm Sanctuary truism: if there is a horse in a stall that might possibly, potentially, hypothetically be getting a treat then there will always be a goat in the background ready to leap in and get a treat of their own. 😂
We lost one of our own today. Read our official statement at @woodstocksanctuary I have a lot of feelings about Dylan, but his death isn't about me. It's about him--and sanctuary. - 1) Dylan. Dylan was a vegan maker. He was a lover of alfalfa cubes. He had strong bonds with staff and volunteers and visitors alike. He will be so missed. Behind him is a legacy. As @killertofu__ said, how many people let alone cows leave a legacy? He will rest in power. He will not be forgotten. He has changed so many lives. And while we can think of that in terms of people, I think of that in terms of how many of HIS KIND he saved. The spared cows by changed people, they don't know Dylan. Dylan doesn't know he saved them. But this is, to me, the greatest part of his legacy. The saving not of us but of his own kind. - 2) Sanctuary. The beauty is we see their lives. The challenge is we see--and sometimes choose the time of--their death. But this is what it is about. Dylan lived 14 years with us, his whole life minus 5 days. We gave him all we had, all science had. And we gave him a ceremonious and dignified passing. Where else in the world does a cow get to live for 14 years and be put down with love and tears? Nowhere. And so, this is the work, painful as it may be, that we do because we believe in a better world. - The better world is coming. And as we all grieve today, I feel it. It is coming partly because of Dylan. And so in this, as I grieve for him, he also still, beyond this world, gives me hope. Thank you buddy. I'll be seeing you around, I'm sure, in all the people you changed.
Fucking vegans! Compassionate extremists trying to end animal abuse! [I don’t care about your personal taste] [no you’re not important][vegans are so much better] [because vegans actually give a fuck] [yes of course it’s for the animals]
Here’s another shot of Moose.

Allison, thank you for using your beautiful talent to support our hard working rescue and sanctuary work. What a special gift this is to us. We can't wait to put one of our very own prints of our special kid on our wall, for all to see 🧡 ♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡ We rescued Moose, along with his even tinier sidekick, Goliath, back in December. Like so many roosters, they were dumped and expected to fend for themselves. 💔 Moose is one of our most friendly and outgoing roos-- he doesn't have a shy bone in him. He loves perching on everyone's shoulders, being kissed on his cheeks, and dancing at our feet every morning. Moose shares his cabin with his three very good rooster friends, Goliath, Oregon and Monkey. He is a sweet boy and we are so grateful he's safe in our care now. #moosetheroo#roosterrescue#mancrushmonday .
🐮 The NYPD wrangled a small cow on the loose on the Major Deegan Expressway today. Officials say the cow got loose near Yankee Stadium just before noon. Traffic was backed up for quite some time, due to the cow. The little guy is now at Skylands Animal Sanctuary and Rescue in New Jersey. #animals#animalsofinstagram#cows#cowsofinstagram @skylands_sanctuary #animalsanctuary#nypd
📢PRÓXIMAMENTE: La verdad sobre los jabalís En España, el jabalí es uno de los animales más acosados: les dan caza indiscriminadamente a madres con bebés e incluso embarazadas; los cazadores los asedian y asesinan todos los días que quieren. Aún habiendo terminado la temporada de caza se procuran "permisos especiales". Argumentan que hay una superpoblación de jabalís. ¿Nos lo vamos a creer? En unos días, os contaremos la verdad sobre los jabalís. 🎬..............KAT, EN CONTRA DE LA CAZA ............................ 🙏Recuerda que la en Fundación El Hogar no recibimos ayudas ni subvenciones. Defendemos a los animales y los ayudamos a través de muchas herramientas como el santuario, los equipos de concienciación a pie de calle, documentales...Si tú nos ayudas con más recursos nosotras podremos acelerar el cambio en nuestra sociedad: ES53149100012620 37509029.
