Yoga alongside the rescued farm animals. Does it get any better than this?
For the last year Janice has been helping out at Friend Farmed Animal Sanctuary an awesome vegan outreach, farm animal rescue, registered charity number 1173318 that works tirelessly to offer a safe forever home for animals saved from slaughter. 100% volunteer based, 100% reliant on donations.
The sanctuary is home to about 250 animals, including cows, sheep, goats, chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese, pigs, an alpaca and 4 residential vegan volunteers who dedicate their lives to the care of the animals.
More information about the yoga coming soon but in the meantime you can find out more about FRIEND and/or become a monthly donor here: patreon.com/friendfarmanimalsanctuary
Volunteering weekly @friendanimalrescue note Frida shrieking in the background furious about not being allowed to roam the sanctuary with me. Trouble is she tries to chase the chickens and stops me interacting with the larger animals by barking or being spooked and trying to drag me away🙄Dave the goat finds her quite disconcerting. The pigs on the other hand aren’t remotely phased. . . . . you can donate monthly to the care of these gorgeous beings. Even £1 per month makes a difference . www.patreon.com/friendfarmanimalsanctuary . . . . . #friendsnotfood #veganfortheanimals #vegan #animalsanctuary #vegansanctuary #instaturkey #turkeysofinstagram #instapig #pigsofinstagram #instagoose #geeseofinstagram #instagoat #goatsofinstagram #fridathepuli #hungarianpuli #nosuchthingasateacuppig #pigs #piglets #goat #goose #turkey #vegansofinstagram #instavegan #animalrights #interspeciesfriendship #interspecieslove #gooseusgoose #davethegoat #josetheturkey
I remember a friend telling me once that she spent her entire childhood trying to stroke sheep and having them run away from her. It really resonated with me because I have always been tactile, I have always loved animals, and I have always tried to reach out and make a connection with every animal I have ever met. I too spent my childhood days, city child visiting the countryside, wondering why sheep ran away from my attempts at friendship. I just concluded that sheep were timid and fearful and would never let me touch them or connect with them. Being accepted by this gentle being yesterday moved me so deeply, they were utterly unafraid of human contact and responded so incredibly sweetly to my request for friendship and connection. They have lived a lifetime of sanctuary at @friendanimalrescue i was really struck by how different a trusting being is to one who is filled with fear, and how i had become so accustomed to farmed animals in particular expressing so much fear and mistrust that I had mistaken fear for their intrinsic nature. #veganfortheanimals #friendanimalsanctuary #vegan #friendsnotfood #sheep #sheepofig #instasheep #thatsmyshoe
@friendanimalrescue Sweet naughty little spoiled piglet throwing a hissy fit because she can’t fit under the fence anymore. I am starting to get to know these guys now. I volunteer once a week and I’m falling in love. I haven’t learned his name yet but the big bull with the curly horns is my sweetheart I am utterly in love with him he is so gentle soft and sweet, sweet, sweet. I can’t go this week and I’m getting withdrawal symptoms so here is a video from last week. It was cold and wet weather but my heart was full of joy cleaning out the chicken coops, you can’t beat the feeling of laying down sawdust, puffing up the hay and knowing the brand new 6-week old chickens saved from slaughter are going to be comfy, cosy and SAFE tonight #animalwelfare #animalsanctuary #friendsnotfood #forallthedarlas #veganfortheanimals
