Thanksgiving Is Execution Time for Millions of Animals

One of the biggest non-religious holidays, bringing together many families, continues to be the day for which millions of animals will be slaughtered. Sadly, the tradition of feasting on a bird’s carcass remains in place, even though vegetarianism and veganism are on the rise. There actually are many vegetarians and vegans who make an exception to their diet just so they do not have to stand up against the criticism of the carnivores surrounding them.

But it is actually easy to stick to a plant based diet during these feast days. Many dishes served “on the side” can be either made without any animal parts or are vegan anyway. You can find anything from vegan stuffing to fake turkey and vegan pumpkin pie in most grocery stores around the country.

So there is no need to worry. If you are invited to a carnivorous Thanksgiving dinner just bring some of those delicious foods along. The only thing to worry about is to bring enough to share.

And if you want to save some animals from execution please support sanctuaries that take care of these beings.

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.

Please read this article and forward it as often as possible:

Are you an artist? Have you made any art, be it a sculpture, a painting, an etching, a photography, etc. depicting an animal? Would you donate it for a great cause? Then please help:

“Every year, Farm Sanctuary commemorates the Thanksgiving season with our Celebration for the Turkeys. This event, held at each of our three sanctuaries, brings together hundreds of people from across the country to enjoy a visit with our rescued turkeys, vegan delights, and presentations from expert speakers.

Guests also have the opportunity to bid on an exciting selection of original artwork, vegan products, and gift certificates in a silent auction. We are currently seeking vegan-friendly businesses and artists interested in donating items for our Celebration silent auctions. We are particularly interested in:

  • framed, animal-themed original artwork, including paintings and photography
  • vegan jewelry
  • gift certificates
  • gift baskets of vegan products
  • vacation packages”

For more information about donating to our silent auctions, please contact Amanda Grode. Farm Sanctuary´s coordinator.

 

Thank you for sharing!

As long as people continue to eat animals and exploit them, treating them inhumanely and torturing them, there will need to be a place for those animals that can be saved from this life in hell and slaughter in the animal industry.
Farm Sanctuary is helping these animals, giving them a place to live as peacefully and safely as possible.

Farm Sanctuary´s Walk for Farm Animals 2014

Farm Sanctuary logo

Farm Sanctuary logo

In 1986, Farm Sanctuary was founded and since then has become the largest farm animal protection organization in the US. Gene Baur has since then worked tirelessly to support, promote, educate, and emphasize on the need to protect animals, especially farm animals from cruel and inhumane treatment.

One way of promoting the ideas of the Farm Sanctuary is the Walk for Farm Animals.

“This fall, join thousands of compassionate people in cities across the United States and Canada for the 2014 Walk for Farm Animals.

Fun, family-friendly, and effective, the Walk raises vital funds for Farm Sanctuary’s lifesaving rescue, education, and advocacy work while also increasing public awareness of farm animal suffering. Each event will offer a unique schedule, which may include speakers, live music, vegan food, raffle prizes, face painting, and costume contests.

By participating in the 2014 Walk for Farm Animals, you will be joining a movement for a kinder world. To register for a Walk in your area or to participate online through the “Sleep In for Farm Animals” virtual Walk, please visit walkforfarmanimals.org today. Together we can change hearts and raise funds for farm animals!

We hope to see you at the 2014 Walk for Farm Animals. If you can’t join the Walk, please consider making a gift of support. Every dollar we raise helps us rescue and advocate for more animals.

Will you walk with us? Register today!”

The Walks for Farm Animals will take place from September through November all around the US. The dates can be found on the website, together with registration details.
