This is for all of my mama’s who nursed, currently nurse, or plant to nurse.
Did you know that in order for a a dairy cow to produce milk, it’s because they had just given birth?For a long time, I didn’t know this. I thought it was something they just did.
So before that milk, cheese, and ice cream showed up at your super markets & your tables, a cow went through pregnancy & birth. Like human mothers, they form attachments to their young early on, even in the womb.
But within hours/days (depending on the farm), that baby calf is taken away from its mother so that milk can be given to humans instead.
Think about how fucked up that truly is... and how you would feel if someone deemed another being was more superior to receive your milk instead of your child. 🤔
Can anyone #maketheconnection ?
She was abandoned at the shelter, but it was also her lucky day! ❤️ Little did she know crazy animal lovers were standing right there to save her!!
We were all there rescuing shelter dogs and cats when someone tried to leave this cutie, but the shelter wouldn’t take her because she’s too small.
We took her, no question! We didn’t have any information on her. So we put her on our laps and drove around LA for hours until we found a vet that was open & would check her out.
She’s the sweetest puppy, so mellow and loving! She was so scared, she kept shaking and hiding her face in our arms.
When she realized she was safe, she posed for the camera, then passed out in my lap!!!!
For now she’ll be fostered until she finds her forever home...... maybe mine!!!! 😬
@aaronasr @istandwithmypack @theanimalbabe and @wolfieanimalbabe ❤️❤️You’re all amazing! What a great day!! 4 dogs and 1 cat rescued!! 🙌🏻
All they want is to not be eaten.
Non-vegans can't even accomplish that very basic level of respect. NOT EATING/KILLING ANOTHER SENTIENT BEING.
This time of year makes me furious with all the materialism and religious seperation. People are so disconnected it makes me sick thinking about what is going on. It's honestly hard for me to remember what it was like to be non-vegan. (Only alittle over 2 years ago.) I can barely remember what it was like to care so little. To know practically nothing of the cruelties and atrocities I was supporting; and to NOT CARE about the ones I did know of. I think it's a way of my mind protecting itself from hating myself. Knowing what I do now- its clear as day- the person I used to be was a heartless monster. I killed and I didnt care. I can only be grateful that I was capable of change. That I'm still able to grow. To try and cause less harm everyday I live, rather than more.
I can't take back all the death and destruction I caused- but I can put an end to my participation in it. I can help others #maketheconnection
Together we can all move forward and forget the monsters we used to be.
"Dia mundial dos direitos dos animais. Pedimos respeito e não damos, clamamos compaixão e não a exercemos, pedimos empatia e não a praticamos...
Esse evento aconteceu pela @animalequalitybrasil em São Paulo na Av. Paulista. Eu só consegui enxergar ali um monte de bebês. Assim como nossos filhos, inocentes, dependentes, vulneráveis.. Dentre muitos animais que estavam ali foi realmente chocante olhar pra esse, já que o que plantou a semente do veganismo em mim foi um bebê igualzinho a ele. Aos doze anos presenciei um novilho ser amarrado pelos pés, içado, degolado e sangrar até a morte.. Assassinado! Vi o seu "couro" ser arrancando de seu corpo como se fosse ali um simples objeto. Esse pequeno bebê me remeteu a tantas lembranças que eu sequer conseguiria descrever a minha sensação. Eu só consigo pedir perdão, por mais que eu saiba que nós não mereçamos, perdão pela minha espécie.. Descansem em paz anjinhos...

I first saw this poor lady a couple days ago.. she looked in pretty bad shape & I was afraid to get too close, not knowing how she’d respond.
Today I walked up closer and noticed one eye was forced shut and very infected, and the other eye was pretty fuzzy. I reached my hand out to give her pats and at first she seemed a bit surprised but then she started pressing her head and neck into my hand to get more scratches!
As I was petting her these big tears were streaming down her eyes and it made me start to cry. I practiced doing reiki and sending healing energy to the wounds I could visibly see and to whatever else was underneath.
All we really need is love - and animals are no exception. They feel pain, trauma, and sadness just like we do, but they also feel and can bring so much joy and love to this world. Let’s treat them with compassion & lessen any needless suffering. We can all be well-cared for, happy and loved!! 💕
