📢 SOUND ON: Did you know turkeys communicate with a complex range of ~30 distinct sounds? On factory farms, these socially sophisticated birds are denied even the most basic humane considerations. At Farm Sanctuary, we allow turkeys to live out their natural lifespans in peace.

Programs like Future Farmers of America (FFA) usually end with students auctioning off the animals they've raised for slaughter. A high school student named Bruno opted to save the life of his best friend Lola & sent her to us instead. We think she's happy about it. 💚

“I don’t want animals to die or be eaten so I teach people my age to be vegan." 💚

At @TysonFoods, fast line speeds (up to 175 birds per minute) make social distancing impossible during the pandemic. The line speeds not only endanger workers; they also cause greater suffering for birds like Norm. Join us in demanding better & call Tyson today at 877-978-1466.

Golden girl Mary Lou (yes, she's a natural blonde) loves soaking up the sun. ☀️ She came to us 14 years ago when her then-pregnant mother was seized from a severe neglect situation. We're so thankful she's spared the abuse her mother endured & can live out her full lifespan. 💚

Though he's the tiniest donkey in the herd, Albert holds his own against his taller friends when it comes to getting a seat at the table. Happy 9th rescue anniversary, Albert, thanks for keeping us smiling. 😄

In case you missed it: Bruce was born on a beef farm—and had all gone to plan, he likely would have been slaughtered between 14-36 months of age. Now safe at Farm Sanctuary, Bruce's tag removal symbolizes that once and for all he will forever be viewed as someone, not something.

“It takes nothing away from a human to be kind to an animal.”

Pregnant Julia was kicked, beaten, & burned with an electrical cattle prod. When she collapsed, factory farm workers dragged her by her ears into the birthing crate. This isn't against the law, which is why we're suing the USDA. Help us take action:

ICYMI: One day after his Oscars win, Joaquin Phoenix helped to liberate a cow & her calf from an LA slaughterhouse and bring them to @FarmSanctuary . Thanks to the work of @laanimalsave , who secured their release, they will live the rest of their lives in peace.⁣ 📽️: Shaun Monson

Just like our dogs and cats at home, farm animals have feelings; they experience joy, sadness, pleasure, and pain. And just like all other creatures on this planet, farm animals want to live.

BREAKING NEWS: The NYC Council has just overwhelmingly passed legislation that will ban the sale of foie gras in the city! Thanks to everyone who contacted council members, showed up to rally at Town Hall, & gave voice to the voiceless victims of the cruel industry. ?✊?
