Sammy and I were cheesin it up in the snow today! Sammy is our big Duroc and was one of the first of the rescued pigs we have at the sanctuary. Believe it or not, he was once small enough to fall through the floors of a semi trailer! That was the best thing that could have happened to him because now he spends his days with all of his friends and gets to smile pretty for these photos!! Palate pleasure is not worth the life of such an intelligent, friendly, thoughtful and loving living being 🤙🏼 #choosevegan#friendsnotfood#iowa#farmsanctuary#animalliberation#animalrights#rescuedpig
On our way home from the vet where Laird had his brain surgery done (aka neutered). Sleepy boy and sure not very happy with me! Some day he will thank me.. (or not). A little time to heal then Laird will be available for adoption! If interested please message me for an adoption application. This sweet boy deserves his own forever family! #adoptdontshop#pigsofinstagram#pigs#rescuedpig
I am a forever pet! Not “until” pet!
I'm not an "until you get bored with me" pet
I'm not an "until I get too big or too old” pet
I'm not an "until you have a baby" pet
I'm not an "until you have to move" pet
I'm not an "until you have no time" pet
I am a forever family member!
I get scared when I’m abandoned & you are not there to protect me. I am scared to be homeless & hurt. I am scared to lose everything I know.
I was lucky to be rescued & nursed back to health. I am home now & they said we are in this together forever! ❤️🐷❤️ Love,
When I was 11 years old I decide to have a big land to help all the animals in the world. After hard work I got a land but for stupid reason I lost the land again, and than all you came to me to save my project. I have a new better land, and my project is growing thanks to the support of many humans overseas, my husband, close friends, volunteers and other organizations. All these ones trust on me and my hard work and as a result you can see the only safe haven for animals in my country and was the first one in South America @julianasanimalsanctuary
I may can't save all the animals in the world like I dreamed, but this animals are ambassadors of the ones behind the cages, with my educational programs I am changing the mind and heart of many people to stop to hurt animals. I can't do it alone, nobody can, that's why we all are a big family sharing this world. My birthday is coming on Valentine's Day and I want please that you all help me with at least $1 to continue working hard to save animals in this forgotten part of the world. This country is in the news just for guerrilla and drugs, but there is more here! There are animals who want to live! Please help me to save more like sweet Perla in this photo who was found in a garbage bag with a broken leg 👉🏼Check the link in my bio 👉🏼
Happy Tuesday, y'all! We have some incredible news to share tonight. Everyone say hello to Fern, our newest resident!
Fern was discovered on the shoulder of I-35 South outside of Ames. She was rescued by a very kind police officer and the director of the #amesanimalshelter , and they took her straight to the @iowastateu Large Animal Hospital. Doctors looked her over and discovered that nothing was broken, but Fern was in shock and had some road rash. The doctors think that she likely fell from a truck. We think they're right, as she has a tattoo inside her ear-- a common practice of the animal agriculture industry.
The Ames Animal Shelter named this sweet little girl Fern, we are so thankful for their quick action in saving her and tending to her so carefully until we could bring her to her forever home. Remember our beautiful spider, Charlotte, we introduced earlier this week? Quite an amazing coincidence, no?
Fern will soon be available to be sponsored on a monthly or yearly basis, in the mean time we will be accepting donations towards her care. As always, thanks for your support. We can't wait for you to meet her!
Remember this skinny scared shy little piggy that was rescued out of the shelter? All traces of that piggy have disappeared and he is showing his true colors. This is one brilliant piggy. His piggymates are smart, don't get me wrong, but this boy? Man he is SMART. He has also made himself right at home. It makes my heart so happy to remember just a short time ago he was hours from being euthanized and has now blossomed into a sweet and confident little dude. Never again will he know fear or hunger. #pigsofinstagram#rescuedpig#lifeattheranch#slapequinerescue#ilovemypiggies
