Find-a-Friend Friday: George the Turkey (Sultan, Washington)
I know that Tofurky Day has come and gone, but in honor of the holiday, today’s adoptable animal is (drumroll please) a turkey!
Depending on where you live, adoptable farmed animals aren’t always easy to find locally; birds who are exploited for their meat, like chickens and turkeys, are even rarer at shelters and humane societies. So today, let’s take a trip to Sultan, Washington, where Pasado’s Safe Haven cares for a variety of companion and farmed animals – turkeys included.
Along with Newbie and Eagle, George the turkey is one of a few lucky birds who have found refuge at Pasado’s.

George the Turkey
George is a 3 year old, male, Bronze Turkey. The Bronze turkey has very big, patterned and colored, fanning plumage to show off and this big beautiful guy is a typical older male turkey. He is very confident, and gets along well with everyone, assuming they give him room to strut and spread out those gorgeous feathers that make the turkey ladies swoon!
George is able to fly, and can go over the 4 foot fence with ease, so any family that takes George in, should be aware that he needs an extra high enclosure to keep him safe from predators. George gets along well with chickens, roosters, and other turkeys, but should be monitored when he is with other male turkeys to ensure that no rivalries are started. George loves to roost, and it is not uncommon to find him perched somewhere high, resting and watching the flock.

If you’re not set up to care for farmed animals – and, let’s face it, most of us aren’t – please consider a donation to help fund Pasado’s kind and compassionate work. Like many rescue groups, they also need volunteers, foster homes, and even an intern. Please spread the word (and spare the turkeys)!

While governments continue to struggle to agree on measures that would increase renewable energy infrastructure significantly, we propose that alternatives to livestock products could be scaled up quickly to reduce today‟s grave risk of climate change significantly. Indeed, reducing animal feed production and replacing at least one quarter of today‟s livestock products with substitutes could be the only way for governments, industry, and the general public collaboratively to take a single, powerful action to reduce climate change quickly.
— 

This is the conclusion from a recent article by Robert Goodland and Jeff Anhang that was published in the Animal Feed Science and Technology journal. (I’m not kidding!)

I recently wrote about Goodland and Anhang’s 2009 report, Livestock and Climate Change, which asserts that livestock may account for 51 percent of all human-caused GHG emissions. In that post, I also linked to an article in Animal Feed Science and Technology that attempted to refute the 2009 report.

Well, now you can read Goodland and Anhang’s response to the criticism [PDF], in which they kind of tear it apart. It’s a fairly short article and definitely worth a read! It adds updated sources to support the original report as well as clarifies some points.

Marked for slaughter and desperate to get back to their mothers -Its a sad society that accepts this with indifference.

Oh gosh..my heart is broken.

when people think animals don’t have feelings? what even?
let me just say this: every year during weaning season, my mother would separate the lambs from their mothers. the lambs would not see their mothers for over four months, not until it was time for the state fair when the lambs would be sent to slaughter and the mothers were judged for their genetics in a competition. when they were reunited, being penned in the same area for a few days, they instantly became inseparable again. they would find each other through the fence, and until they were separated for the final time, they never left each others sides. they slept next to each other, they ate together, and they showed utter panic at being separated. 
show some compassion. go vegan.

This hurts my heart.

Love at Farm Sanctuary! I thought I was hearing things when she said those geese were 25 years old. I had no idea geese lived that long! And they get to spend all their days together. So sweet. I love the pigs best though—you know how I love pigs! 

Happy Valentine’s Day to all my animal friends, and you guys too!

Find-a-Friend Friday: Daphne in Springfield, MO

Daphne Pig (Farm): An adoptable pig (farm) in Springfield, MO Large • Young • Female
Kiss a pig? My name is Daphne and I am a real people pig, looking for  someone to love! Truly, I’m a pig with a lot of heart. If you have a  big heart too, lets get together. I like long walks on my leash and  belly rubs. My hobbies are playing with my blue bouncy ball and soaking  in a nice cool pool of water. Yummy treats make me talk and beg. I will  follow you anyplace. I do enjoy a fine meal, it is a little embarrassing  but I get so excited at meal time that I run around and act silly,  jumping and twisting, but what do you expect I am a pig after all. If  you are wondering about farm pigs, yes we can be loving pets if you have  the room. I want a forever home with someone who thinks outside the box  and can see me for the sweet heart that I am. I am just a baby now but I  will get big and will need a home with plenty of room for me to grow.
Daphne is at the CARE sanctuary and is available for adoption. If you  have any questions about her or are interested in meeting her please  email us at: yokosw@aol.com

I’LL CARRY YOU, HOWIE! YOU AIN’T HEAVY, YOU’RE MY BROTHER!!!

reblogged from vegansaurus:

This is an adorable video of the Animal Place cows moving pastures. As Animal Place’s Marji Beach explains, “All we have to do is call ’Come on cows’ and they come running. Cows were not made to sprint, so its endlessly entertaining to watch.” So cute!!

I especially love the part at the end with older guy Howie who’s all, “I ain’t running for nobody! Shit!”
