I, myself, just got done reading Gene Baur's Farm Sanctuary, and I am heading to the New York sanctuary in May. I've known for some time of the horrors of farm animal abuse, and most generations of my farm family thankfully are vegan now, my brother Bernie leading the way. I thought I was alone for a long time in my quest to try to get the message across about abuse in farm factories until I discovered Farm Sanctuary on the internet last year. The book has reaffirmed my conviction in becoming an animal advocate, and I am getting ready to make some major changes in my life. Wish me luck !


This video is priceless. So glad to see the innocence of these animals caught on tape! I have been a member of farm sanctuary for 16 years and proud of it. I applaud everyone at the shelters for being so selfless and giving. These animals truly deserve better and they have found the best place on earth to be. Farm Sanctuary! Congratulations little piggies, you will forever be running free! Hope to see you this summer Sprinkles and Timmy...

just love the 'good' stories that come out of factory farming practices. After being exposed to it a bit back, i decided not to consume factory farmed meat anymore. I am still discovering the line of organic/vegan/ meat choices, but at least I know the truth about! It is funny, yet sad how all my friends/family know this curelty or abuse exists, but they just shove it out of their head. Out of sight, out of mind. I say bring it out blazing anytime you can to EDUCATE the people to make good choices. Thanx for all the work you do, and to which I support any way I can.


I've been working in Human Services for almost 10 years, and to this day, there is absolutely nothing, NOTHING, that saddens, sickens, and angers me more than animal abuse.

When I first became aware of some of the issues last year, I remember not being able to sleep well at night, having nightmares and many crying spells as well after seeing some video footage and pictures of factory farm abuse, etc.

So glad I discovered Farm Sanctuary; they truly are doing God's work and there must be so much happiness and love at both Sanctuaries. God Bless Farm Sanctuary; I pray for all your staff and your animal friends every day; thank you for all you do.

What you accomplish and continue to accomplish is absolutely amazing, and seeing these 2 little piglets running and playing like happy-go-lucky children made me smile and brought tears to my eyes; can't wait to come up to NY and visit the farm in a few months:) Farm Sanctuary has truly changed my life and my husband's life, for the better:)


How cute are they? It's heartwarming and very hopefull to see this! I only wish all the litle piglets could be so free!


Compare that video clip with pigs who are destined for a life of misery and torture on factory farms, where they will never see the light of day or be able to play and enjoy themselves just so that humas can have hot dogs and pork chop which are among the unhealthiest foods you'll come accross.

Very depressing to even think of all the torture and suffering that goes on in the corporate factory farms.


Adorable! Those are two very lucky pigs. Thank you for taking care of them!
