Happy Monday friends! 4 out of 5 of these babies are ok to eat, 1 is not. Why? Who decided that? And why do we blindly follow along?
"Many people don't eat veal because they don't think it's right to eat babies.
Age at which other animals are killed:
🐔 meat chickens: 5-6 weeks (still peeping at slaughter)
🐖 pigs: 5-6 months
🐂 beef cows: 12-18 months
🦃 turkeys: 3-6 months
🐑 lambs: 6-8 months
🐇 rabbits: 3-4 months
🦆 ducks: 1.5-2 months
They are all babies." - Anna Pippus (@easyanimalfree)

Happy Monday friends! Yesterday we remembered all the fallen soldiers that risked and sacrificed their lives for our freedom. Today, I wanted to honour all the animals used in war.
Countless dogs, horses, cats, pigeons, donkeys, goats, elephants, camels, rats, dolphins, sea lions and many other animals were sacrificed for us, and continue to be sacrificed in modern wars today. They had no choice, they were enlisted by humans. But animals aren't here for us, they're here with us.They're not our slaves or food or entertainment or clothing.
Please consider this every time you think it's your personal choice to eat an animal. It's not, they didn't offer themselves to you. You're taking a sentient, living being's choice to live away for a fleeting moment of pleasure on your tongue. If you love animals, please leave them off your plates, today on #meatlessmonday and every day.
Happy Monday friends! Both of these babies need their own mother's milk, but only the human baby will grow up duped by the multi-billion dollar dairy industry into thinking it needs cow's milk beyond infancy. And the baby calf will be stolen away from its mom and sent to slaughter at 4 days old, just so we can eat veal, this time duped by the multi-billion dollar meat industry into thinking we need animal protein to survive.
Disrupt stale, social conditioning. THINK INDEPENDENTLY. Challenge what you thought was the truth.
November is #WorldVeganMonth . If you're vegetarian or just veg-curious, why not try leaving animal protein (meat, fish, dairy, eggs) off your plate just for this month and see what happens? Everything new might be difficult at the beginning, but after awhile your palate changes, your energy increases, no more bloating, no more acne, your skin stars to glow, hair and nails get stronger, weight drops effortlessly, digestion problems disappear... your body literally begins to repair itself from the inside out. And you'll wonder why you hadn't started sooner.
One of my very favourite photos. 💕Thank you Vic @ehvegan for capturing this at @wishing_well_sanctuary. It reminds me of why I do what I do. Why I strive to little by little inspire compassion on behalf of animals. 💚
When I look at this photo, I remember the warmth in my heart and how lucky I felt to be able to give cuddles to one of the lucky ones. To someone who was valued as a life and not for his wool, skin or flesh. .
May he be a living ambassador for the millions of others just like him who weren't dealt a kind card in life. .
Every day is a chance to choose kindness. Maybe today is that day? 🤞🏻😘
This mother and 11 chicks were left in a box outside @friendanimalrescue the other day and because FRIEND never turn an animal away, they’ve taken them in. They’ll be in this caravan for a few weeks until they’re big enough to roam free around their new forever home.
Caring for hundreds of animals certainly isn’t cheap. FRIEND are constantly taking in new rescues and making renovations to the premises to accommodate them. This is particularly tough during winter. If you’re able to do so, please visit their website www.friendanimalsanctuary.org to make a one-off donation or become a Patron. You’ll help save/improve so many lives. 👊🏼🌱❤️🐓🐤🐥🐣🐔
