Gilbert 🐐 is a testament to the boundless joy and companionship animals bring into our lives, blurring the line between what are considered pets and other animals. 

Gilbert is just like our furry friends at home - he has his circle of friends, his unique likes and dislikes, and a personality that shines brighter than the sun. 

From his passion for food treats to his playful headbutts, Gilbert teaches us that every animal has a story, a heart, and a desire to live. 

The only thing that differentiates animals like Gilbert from our pets is our perception. It’s time we embrace all animals with the same love and respect, recognising the incredible beings they are. 

Let Gilbert’s story inspire us to see the world through a lens of compassion and unity. Let’s broaden our hearts and minds to cherish all animals, recognising that each has its unique personality and charm

Thinking of visiting a petting zoo this Easter? Swap the petting zoo for a sanctuary visit! ✨🌟

A sanctuary visit offers lessons for the heart:-

🐾 Teaches Compassion: Sanctuaries show animals as individuals, not entertainment. Let your kids learn empathy by observing animals living on their own terms.

🚫 No More Cute for Profit: Unlike petting zoos, sanctuaries rescue animals from dire situations. They’re never bred or sold. Show your children the value of life over profit.

🤗 Consent Matters: Animals choose if they want to interact. It’s a great way for kids to learn respect and boundaries.

💔➡️❤️ Stories That Teach: Hear tales of rescue and survival. It’s an eye-opener for little ones on the importance of kindness.

👧🏽 Empower Young Advocates: Your child can be a voice for animals, sharing their sanctuary stories with friends.

👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 A Meaningful Family Day Out: Choose a day that aligns with kindness and understanding; creating memories that matter.

Held by their back legs and swung against a concrete floor... this violent treatment of baby animals happens every day in Australian pig factories — but there is nothing ‘normal’ about a system that accepts this brutality.

Farm Transparency Project (@dominionmovement) investigators have once again exposed the miserable lives of pigs trapped within animal factories. To the pig meat industry, these sensitive, loving, social individuals are seen as nothing more than production units. Mother pigs languish in barbaric devices, barely able to move as their piglets are taken from them. Helpless to protect their babies, they have no choice but to lay there and listen to them squeal while their teeth and tails are clipped without any pain relief. Some piglets are deemed ‘unviable’ are smashed against concrete and thrown out like rubbish.

The owner of this facility has responded by saying that their methods are “in line with industry standards” and they’re absolutely right — because the pig meat industry accepts chronic suffering and animal cruelty as simply ‘the cost of doing business’.

Is this the kind of ‘business’ that is worth supporting?

Jessie 🧡 Jessie is a 25 year old ex-racehorse rescued from a life of despair within the racing industry. The average life span of a horse is 25-30 years. The average career of a racehorse is 3 years, with only a few retiring peacefully. The reality is the number of horses exiting the industry far outweighs the number of good homes available. Jessie now has the freedom she and all horses deserve #rescuehorse #horseracingkills #sanctuarylife #someonenotsomething
