Meeting Fiona Oakes, Tower Hill Stables Animal Sanctuary

This is a wonderful example of an animal sanctuary in England. It is run by a dedicated person who also is on of the world’s fastest runners, running on plant based energy.

Last weekend I visited Tower Hill Stables Animal Sanctuary in Asheldham, Essex, England. This is the nearest farm animal sanctuary to me, so I wanted to check it out and meet some of the animals. I was also really excited to meet Fiona Oakes, who runs the sanctuary with her partner, Martin. It was a cold, rainy day which made me realise that running a sanctuary of over 400 rescued animals couldn’t be easy.

Fiona is a dedicated marathon runner and a committed vegan. She challenges the myth that vegans are weak and do not have the same strength as carnivores, and does so by completing extreme marathons, for which she trains every single day. Since 2013, she is the fastest woman in the world to run a marathon on all seven continents, she has even completed marathons in destinations such as the North Pole!

Home after a long day at work? Ready for some food, but too tired to cook? There is always some pizza delivery available, right? Think again:

“A new Mercy For Animals undercover investigation reveals appalling animal abuse at a Leprino Foods dairy supplier. Leprino Foods is the world’s largest mozzarella cheese producer and a supplier to virtually all of the major pizza chains in the country, including Pizza Hut, Papa John’s, and Domino’s.”

Nestlé Moving Towards Animal Awareness?

In a recent article in the New York Times, Nestlé is described as moving forward towards building pressure on their suppliers for more humane treatments of animals.

For some of us, this might still be a far way to animal welfare, but Nestlé, being one of the global players in the food industry, turning at least some of their attention towards the plight of animals can be seen as the success of all of those speaking up for animals.

Nestlé sells many brands using milk, so changing their attitude might make a big difference to many lives in the milk producing hellish machinery.

As long as people do not know what is going on behind the walls of slaughterhouses they can pretend that life is good for farm animals. Articles like this one can change this.

Cows Living Happily Ever After?

With the evolvement from meat eaters to vegetarians some of these vegetarians have started thinking about going vegan due to the torturous situation of milk cows and the short-lived life of male calves. But even with all the guilt felt when drinking a glass of milk or biting into a piece of raw milk camembert cheese most vegetarians still cannot give up cow milk all together. Taking a look at the holy cows in India, some believe that selling milk and letting a cow live her life until her natural end should not be a paradoxon.

“If you don’t eat beef because you feel sorry for those cows in Chick-fil-A ads, then you probably shouldn’t drink milk either. The typical male calf born to a dairy cow becomes veal. The typical female is milked for five years—a quarter of her natural lifetime—then sent to the abattoir to become pet food or low-grade hamburger meat. Elsie the Cow, Borden Dairy Company’s famous cartoon logo, is smiling only because she doesn’t realize that she’s about to get euthanized with a cattle gun.

Yet if you’re an ethical vegetarian who still can’t bear to give up milk, you now have another option: slaughter-free dairy, which comes from farms where cows never get killed.”
