This will be my first Thanksgiving as a vegan.
Which will be hard.
It got me going back through some photos
from a recent trip I took to Farm Sanctuary in
Farm Sanctuary works to protect farm animals from cruelty,
inspire change in the way society views and treats farm animals,
and promote compassionate vegan living.
The trip was amazing.
The animals were beautiful.
The people were inspiring.
The cause is critical.
Me with Gene Bauer, the founder of Farm Sanctuary.
A happy turkey who won't be killed for a meal this year.
A baby goat getting its strength back now that it's safe.
This sweet chicken had its beak cut off without anesthetic - a standard
practice in farming these days.
It was so cool that we were able to
hang out this close with the animals!
I've decided pigs are ridiculously cute!
