If you drink the milk from a mother cow, you need to learn about the dark secret of the dairy industry and then decide if you still choose to be part of it.
15/09/2019 Questions & Concerns The most common question and concern we receive from the public is regarding ID ear tags worn by sanctuary animals. Many people naturally become very upset when seeing them in the ears of rescued animals not realising that in the U.K. tags are a LEGAL requirement. The ear tag number

My first steps into a plant-based diet in April 2018 were not your typical ones. It was a dark time; darker than many could imagine. Having separated from my wife only two days after my mother died in December 2017, my world had been ripped apart. I was unable to function as a normal human being. An attempt at some sort of reconciliation in the New Year eventually resulted in my moving out for good at the end of March 2018. Feeling completely destroyed and isolated can sometimes result in the odd spell of random motivation to do something completely different. You can either curl Read More
In 2009 in Piedmont Italy, Fedy set up “La Piccola Fattoria degli Animali” (The Little Animal Farm) https://www.facebook.com/PigWhisperer/
This would be a place devoted to pigs saved from slaughterhouses and factory farms, but which would also give hospitality to dogs and cats that have been ill-treated or abandoned.
We caught up with Fedy and asked her some questions.
Can you tell us where the idea came from and how you managed to bring it about?
Let me start by telling you a little story that will surprise you. Last year, three days before my birthday, my mother told me that I was supposed to be born on November 11. Everybody was Read More
A statement I hear quite often is “The Save Movement doesn’t actually save animals”.
Having been closely involved with the movement from it’s UK birth in 2016, I decided to share my thoughts on the movement and what came out of my involvement with them.
A Time For Change…
The first training is Reverence for Life –
Aware of the suffering caused by the destruction of life, I am committed to cultivating the insight of Read More
The absolutely brilliant 1985 novel by Margaret Atwood The Handmaids Tale has been adapted by Hulu into a critically acclaimed and multiple award winning TV series of the same title.
The Handmaids Tale depicts human females being enslaved and kept like prisoners – just as farm animals really are! Just like dairy cows, these human fertile women are also raped and exploited for their reproductive systems.
I was so eager to view The Handmaids Tale that I ordered series 1 on DVD from HMV to arrive with me on UK release day back in March 2017 – not something I would normally do.
Atwood drew on the Book of Genesis Chapter Read More

Growing up in the late 1990’s/ early 2000’s I had never heard of veganism or even knew it was a “thing”…to be honest I had never particularly heard much about vegetarianism either! There was nowhere near as much mainstream talk, publicity, activism, adverts or information then as there has been over the past few years.
Animal Lover – Animal Eater!?
As a kid I would visit country parks and zoo’s while eating chicken nuggets and cheese sandwiches while never making any sort of connection between the animals I was visiting and the dead ones I was eating. However, I always claimed to be an animal lover, not just Read More

I have a big announcement everyone. Apologies for the long post, but I’m really making a big change in my life. Please read the whole thing.
I’ve decided not only to stop being an activist, but also that being vegan isn’t for me. As a logical, compassionate person, I can’t condone veganism anymore.
I’ve been educating myself and have realised something. An industry which breeds, confines, exploits and prematurely kills at least 56 billion sentient land animals (and countless marine animals) every year; is the leading cause of species extinction, ocean dead zones, water pollution and habitat destruction (and many more); and offers products which directly promote our biggest Read More
Capitalism, as we know it, is dying. We are coming to an end of certain presumptions and thought patterns that we have so far taken as normality and acceptable – industrial agriculture is the obvious example.
I am aware that many object to the severity of my language; but is there not cause for severity? I will be as harsh as truth, and as uncompromising as justice. On this subject, I do not wish to think, or to speak, or write, with moderation. No! Tell a man whose house is on fire to give a moderate alarm; tell him to moderately rescue his wife from the hands of the ravisher; tell Read More

It is hard to climb the stairs. Only four flights but they are narrow and steep. People piss in the entryway and offensive graffiti covers the walls. Back home early tonight. Another curfew. I stay at 45 Slaughterhouse Avenue. It’s not in the best part of the City.
From the window of my tiny one room flat, I can sometimes see fields of green far away beyond the City limits. My room has all four walls painted green. I did a good job. Slow but steady. I could have painted something similar to one of the works in the Art Gallery but painting in many colours is difficult Read More
