Violet has been with us at our New York Shelter for nearly 11 years − which is 10½ years longer than the life of the average pig who is raised for meat. Over the last decade, we have watched her overcome so much, blossoming into the confident, compassionate, and loyal girl we know today. #FriendsNotFood

Before her rescue, Rosa was used as a breeding sow on a factory farm, confined to a tiny gestation crate for most of her life. But since coming to Farm Sanctuary nine years ago this week, life has completely changed for this very gentle and loving pig. At our Northern California Shelter, she enjoys strolling in the pasture, swimming in her favorite pond, lounging in a soft bed of straw, and of...

This week at Farm Sanctuary: Warmer weather at our New York Shelter means more time outside to spend with friends! Our sheep residents were especially thrilled with this unexpected break from winter, taking in all the sights and sounds before running laps back and forth across the pasture in excitement!

This week at Farm Sanctuary: As unseasonable weather descended upon our shelters on both coasts, we are reminded that each day offers new and unexpected opportunities to live compassionately, allowing us to find joy and purpose in these special moments – however they may present themselves. Ian, Jaime, and Earl goats, pictured here soaking up the sunshine, make the most of this sudden respite...

The bonds of friendship and family mean everything to bovines like Orlando (top left/bottom right) and Billy (top right/bottom left)!

Both boys are survivors of the dairy industry, which views male calves as byproducts and treats them as such. As babies, both Orlando and Billy narrowly avoided terrible fates; at Farm Sanctuary, they have become dear friends and grooming buddies.

There are very few things that Marge loves as much as a relaxing dirt bath! This very charming pig came to Farm Sanctuary four years ago this week, and since then, she's been enjoying #FarmSanctuaryLife to the hilt — spending countless happy hours rooting in the soil, wallowing in the mud, and chatting up a storm with her friends (she's extremely vocal, not only responding to her name but also...

Our floppy-eared friend Marge pig is always smiling – never more so than when she’s soaking in a nice mud bath on a warm day. It’s hard to believe how close she came to never knowing these small pleasures that #FarmSanctuaryLife brings.

As you can see from her dirt mustache and beard, Marge loves to root in the soil, using her snout to forage and dig up whatever treats she can find. Like most pigs who spent their early lives kept indoors, this special girl now chooses to spend most of her days outside, finally able to be the pig she was meant to be! #FriendsNotFood

“We’re seeing a lot of parallels between chickens and a lot of the mammals that we think of as very intelligent.”

Thank you to the Washington Post for featuring the new white paper from The Someone Project, a joint undertaking by The Kimmela Center for Animal Advocacy, Inc. and Farm Sanctuary. Read the report at bit.ly/ThinkingChickens

Chickens ‘changed the world.’ So why do we ignore them?
