sanctuary for farmed animals

“Our culture will go vegan, transform, and flourish, or it will continue brutalizing animals, humans, and the earth to its self destruction. We are not the only species on this planet, and we cannot continue to usurp the wisdom of the web of life here.”

Michael Slusher worked as a vivisectionist for a prolonged number of years. He would perform experiments on a wide variety of animals and quite often struggled with the attachment he felt for them. He often tried to convince himself that the research he was doing would be valuable toward science and beneficial.

Eventually, wracked with guilt, Slusher quit, became a vegan and wrote a memoir titled, “They All Had Eyes: Confessions of a Vivisectionist.” In this book he raises awareness to the moral consequences and brutality of animal testing, something he is now staunchly against. Many people are aware of animal testing but not aware of the amount of pain and terror the animals suffer before finally dying or being killed.

In an interview, Slusher said: “One of the reasons I wrote the book was so that I could confront my demons and hopefully slay them. It still depresses me greatly that I didn’t see what I was doing at the time.” The book contains data which shows how the practise of animal testing is outdated, cruel, and unnecessary. Part of the book’s proceeds also goes toward Triangle Chance for All, a sanctuary for rescued farm animals.

Magnolia (left) and Jazzy (right) are survivors of the dairy industry. They are both free-martins, meaning they were born a twin to a male calf, and are unable to get pregnant. As a result, they were deemed useless to the dairy industry. If Magnolia and Jazzy weren’t rescued, they both would’ve already been killed for their flesh — Magnolia for “cheap dairy beef,” and Jazzy for “veal.” 

Ditch dairy for them.
