School + Sanctuary = Fun!
This will translate into us becoming more passionate about saving the lives of others not so fortunate. It will be this passion for animals that fuels the fire within us and drives the animal rights movement forward. One immensely important service these animal sanctuaries provide, besides caring for the animals, is educating people. People learn about how these poor creatures ended up at the sanctuary. They learn about the cruelties of the animal agriculture industry. But an even bigger lesson, or what some may call the big hairy audacious goal — is to educate people about animal rights and veganism.
Encouraging people to see the potential for a better world, and to start working towards it.

What a brilliant idea. Something I never really thought about was how sick many of the animals who end up at sanctuaries are. These poor babies had e.

As if caring for and feeding many animals were not enough, these sanctuaries which are safe havens for animal victims of factory farming, are burdened with huge medical expenses to get these animals well. One of the most heartbreaking things is that you know that the animals we are rescuing are the lucky few. But this is what drives us.
We have programs driving real social and system change that will impact animals not lucky enough to make it through our sanctuary gates.
Those are the animals that haunt me. Another challenge is the huge responsibility sanctuaries have in just the day to day care that the animals require. Many animals can live up to 20 years and sanctuaries must be in it for the long haul.
They need clean drinking water, feed, secure fencing, worming, fly prevention, hoof trims, tusk trims and emergency vet care. Farms require structure and property maintenance, manure clean up and management as well as maintenance and repair for farm equipment and vehicles.
So, what is the best thing you can do to help animal sanctuaries? Become involved. Volunteers are always needed for many different tasks such as administrative work, helping out at events, caring for the animals and property maintenance. We need volunteers and we need people to be engaged with our advocacy efforts. We need people that are able to donate money because everything we do requires funding. You could also donate supplies, towels, stall bedding, fresh produce and bagged feed.
Many sanctuaries sell merchandise. Some sell vegan food. You could sponsor an animal.

Sanctuaries offer people a chance to help sponsor an animal for a minimal monthly donation. Or even better, you could adopt an animal. A very clever and fantastic opportunity is a stay at their guest house. This is something on my bucket list.
