Farm Sanctuary Animal Acres

September 2, 2013 — Leave a comment

When you visit Farm Sanctuary’s Animal Acres shelter, you’ll know right away that it is a special place. Their sanctuaries are home to rescued cows, pigs, turkeys, and other farm animals — and each has a special story. Their stories of struggle and survival, against all odds, give the public insight into the realities farm animals face in the modern factory farming industry, but also introduce us to inspiring individuals through their heartwarming tales.

Animals who began their lives abused and neglected now spend their days digging in the dirt, basking in the sun, and napping in the straw. Each animal is given the freedom and attention needed not only to recover but to thrive.
