Imagine Being Vegan(ish) And Loving Every Minute Of It

Imagine Being Vegan(ish) And Loving Every

Minute Of It

Recently, I had the opportunity to visit Piedmont Farm Animal Refuge in Pittsboro, North Carolina. They are an organization that rescues animals who have managed to escape from meat and dairy farms. I learned so much about the personalities, intelligence and capacity for bonding that farm animals have when they are left to live happy and stress-free lives. Apparently, turkeys are big show-offs and flirts, goats give wet kisses, and chickens can be lulled to sleep by petting their cheeks. The hypocrisy of a culture that spoils cats and dogs while torturing and killing these animals by the masses really stood out after this experience.
