🌎Earth is home to more than 30,000 known species of fish, which is more than all the other species of vertebrate animals combined. Fish are amazingly diverse and truly fascinating. Did you know, for example, that fish are fast learners with long-term memories and a keen sense of time? They recognize other individuals, can keep track of complex social relationships, and work cooperatively with other species. Fish are inquisitive, perceptive, and personable.
Sadly, fish are the most misrepresented and misperceived animals. For example, the absurd but common notion that fish have “a three-second memory” should be blown out of the water by the fact that migrating fishes, such as salmon, remember their way home years later and from thousands of miles away. Others, including goldfish, can learn and remember skills. One is even noted for it in the Guinness Book of World Records!
Also contrary to popular myth, fish can suffer fear and pain, as has been scientifically shown. Far more fish are exploited than any other category of animals, and they are subjected to the worst abuses. Yet, fish have the least legal protection and receive the least concern for their well-being, even from the animal protection community.
Globally, an estimated one to three TRILLION wild-caught fishes and 37-120 BILLION farmed fish are killed commercially for food each year. Hundreds of millions more are killed for “sport” each year in the U.S. alone. Fishes are also increasingly replacing other animals for scientific experimentation. Approximately one-quarter of all the animals used for research and education in North America are fish. Additionally, some 1.5 billion are used for aquariums.

Huge thanks to everyone that came out yesterday to celebrate our first year. 🎈 We can't believe how much has happened over the last year... all the lives that you've helped us save, all the coops you helped us build... that's what it's all about. 💗
We truly appreciate each and every one of you and hope you enjoyed your special Appreciation Day!
Thank you... from the bottom of our hearts. We can't wait to see what the next year brings!

What a weekend! The 2017 @farmsanctuary Animal Care Conference was a success. While there is so much more to learn, we are so grateful to come back with tons of knowledge. What a beautiful place with even more beautiful animals!🐷🐗🐮🐔🐐🦃
DEAR FOLLOWERS @minovalleyfarmsanctuary URGENTLY need our help!!!! 🚨Their current (15yr old car) is now beyond repair and they are desperately trying to raise the funds they need to buy another vehicle. A safe and reliable vehicle is imperative to running the sanctuary, without it they can't go and buy food for the animals they've saved, get medical supplies, take sick animals for medical aid, rescue animals in need or which have been abandoned and so much more. Please please please donate whatever you can via the link on their Instagram page @minovalleyfarmsanctuary 🙏🏼 PLEASE SHARE #fundraiser#pleasehelp
#SundayFunday at the sanctuary! Everyone is excited for a yummy breakfast! The little white chickens you see in this video are all former battery hens from an egg factory farm. They all spent years in a space no bigger than a shoe box, crammed in with other chickens & had no room to stand or stretch their wings. 💔 But now they have their happily ever after!! They spend their days frolicking & twirling about with acres of land to roam here at Enchanted Farm! So as you have your breakfast this morning, please remember these little birds that are now having their breakfast in freedom. Make your breakfast cruelty free... don't eat eggs!! The majority of eggs come from factory farms just like the one these sweet girls spent years suffering in. Don't contribute to it! #govegan#thedodo#enchantedfarmsanctuary 🍓🍉🍎🍒🍇
Good afternoon, happy Monday! We have a quick update for y'all on the recovery of The Liber8ed.
We'll start with some wonderful news... Frank got to come home from the hospital today! His lip and tail are healing up beautifully. When he arrived back at the sanctuary, he and Rocco ran right straight towards each other-- it was a very sweet reunion.
Max has shown great improvement; his face has healed drastically! His temperament is so incredibly gentle, we love seeing him experience some relief from all his pain and getting to know him a little better.
Bhramena may have a patch of dead bone in his leg, caused by an interruption of blood supply from a fracture. The doctors will need to re-x-ray him in a few days to be sure. If they confirm their suspicions, the team will have to do surgery to remove the dead bone. We'll keep y'all closely updated!
Django and Tucker joined Brhamena, Max, and Cooper at the Iowa State University Large Animal Hospital today. They are undergoing thorough examinations and we'll report the findings ASAP.
Cooper may get to go home with Frank and Rocco at the end of this week, we're keeping our fingers crossed!
Rocco wasn't so happy about being the last of The Liber8ed left at home. When we loaded up Django and Tucker in the trailer to leave, Rocco was a wreck! He was screaming and crying and our other resident cows were yelling back to comfort him. It's incredible how bonded The Liber8ed are. We also love seeing our other residents doing their best to welcome the new guys.
We have been so blown away with the response y'all have shown us after the horrific accident last Friday. We absolutely could not provide the care we have without your contributions-- we are SO thankful! If you feel so inclined to help us with the on-going medical costs of The Liber8ed, please click the blue button towards the top of this page, or visit www.iowafarmsanctuary.org/how-to-help. We'll post another update as soon as we have news! #iowafarmsanctuary#compassionliveshere#theliber8ed
