If only we could meet the "meat" on our plates, then maybe we'd finally make the connection and see that it's not actually food; it's the body of an individual who had a personality, feelings, and the desire to be alive. Choose compassion and go vegan today 💚
One of our favorite animal sanctuaries is @sleepypigfarm! For the rest of today and tomorrow, we'll be donating 25% of profits from our Vegan Crunch chocolate bars directly to them. To get some vegan chocolatey deliciousness for yourself and help animal sanctuaries at the same time, click the link in our bio! 😊🍫

Our other daughter, Halligan, just arrived for her weekly 3 sleeps. She is making the rounds checking in with her harem of boy toys.
Meanwhile Iris is helping herself to dinner, straight from the stovetop.
He just wanted me to pet him too 😭🙈 The Happy Herd Farm Sanctuary is a registered not for profit farm animal sanctuary for animals either abused or at risk. Go visit/donate! #friendly#cute#animals#farm#sanctuary

Noah is covered in pine feathers right now
Our beautiful bush fire rescue, Peggy the brushtail possum, is doing really well and thriving in her new home here at Zambi.
Unfortunately the severity of her injuries means she wouldn’t survive in the wild.
You can see some of her finger tips missing on the left in this video, which limits her climbing ability.
To learn more about peggys story, scroll back in IG feed (look for the blue bandages on her feet).
The last few days you may have notice we haven’t been posting, Tuesday and yesterday have been the hardest day of fox rescuing, Odin passed away Tuesday morning at the vet office, he’s little body was too weak and he felt he was safe to let go. My heart is broken. And it is has been very hard for me the past two days. He had so many infections that we couldn’t see. It makes me so angry Because someone let him get so sick and did nothing.
It’s so hard to know he has left me, I am having him cremated and then taking his ashes and planting a tree or flowering bush with him, putting his name plate there so he will still be a part of the sanctuary and he will watch over the rest of the foxes. It’s hard to accept he’s gone, even though he was here for a short time I loved him just as much as the rest. He was my first loss, and now he is going to be my kick to end fur farming in at least Michigan. It will have to be a state by state. And he’s memory will be shared all the time about his strength. I am emotionally exhausted but being with the other foxes help. To see all the faces happy and healthy. To know they’ll never be in harms way here. ❤️🦊 Please remember DO NOT SUPPORT THE FUR INDUSTRY! Odin is like thousands of other foxes, they suffer and no one is there to help them. We save as many as we can, but it’s heart breaking to know we can’t save them all.
Thank you to all for the support. This has been very rough and I am just taking it day by day right now. ❤️🦊
Today marks 100 days Chimfunshi has been in lockdown. First time, since our opening in 1983, that we have closed our doors.
Over three months of working tirelessly, to protect our resident chimps and the team. A total of 134 chimpanzees and 70 families working onsite. Despite the help of our private donors and loyal supporters, we are facing extremely difficult times as one of our main income sources are the visitors the sanctuary usually receives, but due to the current lockdown this is not possible.
Since the arrival of Pal, Chimfunshi has been 37 years working to give rescued chimpanzees the life they deserve while also taking care of our vast local community, around 300 people, that make the Chimfunshi family. But we can not do it without your help.
