For them the horror continues

“Farm animals feel pleasure and sadness, excitement and resentment, depression, 
fear and pain. 
They are far more aware 
and intelligent than we ever imagined…” 
— Jane Goodall

"Three women found alive after a decade in captivity endured lonely, dark lives inside a dingy home where they were raped and allowed outside only a handful of times..."

We have all been riveted by this week's news story that sounded more like something out of a horror movie than real life. Thank goodness these women and the little girl held with them are now safe.

We were shocked, appalled and saddened, and yet vast numbers of animals imprisoned in factory farms are forced to endure horrific and deplorable conditions and nobody seems to care. We rescue people from such miserable conditions, but for too many animals the horror and suffering continues.   

We must act to end this suffering as well. To learn more about why raising animals this way is terrible for them and for us, visit Farm Sanctuary.

I will have more to say in my next post.
