A Special Thread🐞

Anyone who knows anything about animal sanctuaries has a favorite, either because of the way the animals fought for their freedom or how a person fought to free them

I have a couple, but my favorite story is of Sasha Bennett who created @BTWsanctuary
She started out rescuing dogs who were candidates for euthanasia 💔 based on being fear biters
Unlike most people, Sasha saw that the problem wasn't the innocent dogs but humans in their thoughtless ideas of how a dog must behave in our presence - as though they, themselves, aren't individuals who also have feelings & deserve to be given a reason to trust ♥️
Most recently she rescued 53 pregnant pigs from a more horrific than usual farm that doubled as a slaughterhouse

These pigs never knew what it felt like to be in the fresh air, let alone had ever heard or felt a gentle word or pet from a person
They're still learning to trust, & some have PTSD due to their horrific experiences, but every day they're getting used to kindness, safety, regular meals, clean water to drink, & a real home

Sasha works from sun up til sun down taking care of every resident at her sanctuary
She does it whether she's worried about tomorrow or not

Help me ensure that she doesn't have to worry about tomorrow - at least when it comes to food for the pigs ♥️

🍂Based on a true story...


Once upon a time there was a cruel group of people who kept defenseless pigs as property

Knowing the masses never thought about the feelings of these innocent pigs, they did as they pleased with them

The gentle animals were abused, starved, terrorized & tortured in being made to watch their friends & family murdered & hung

But one day a woman, with a most beautiful heart, learned of the horrid suffering & knew she couldn't stand by & do nothing

She took on a difficult fight to rescue the horrified pigs from the hell they lived in

It wasn't easy, & many people mocked her for trying while few helped, but she continued on the path of what was right & she won the right to rescue the pigs

There's no requirement that we consume the products of animal suffering in order to meet our nutritional needs

Get creative

You can do this

#BeVegan #Justice 🕊️
When you 1st open your eyes to the perspective of the victims you're shocked to learn how many products contribute to animal suffering

But there are alternatives to everything you're used to, because animals don't deserve to be commodified

They deserve compassion

Make plant based versions of the meals you're used to without the sentient victims ✌🏼
