Props to Farm Sanctuary for offering an awesome animal-friendly celebration this Independence Day! If you haven’t yet been to the Sanctuary, I recommend it. Nothing will make you feel better about being vegan than meeting the sweet, beautiful rescued animals that live there.

Farm Sanctuary is the nation’s leading farm animal protection organization. Since incorporating in 1986, Farm Sanctuary has worked to expose and stop cruel practices of the “food animal” industry through research and investigations, legal and institutional reforms, public awareness projects, youth education, and direct rescue and refuge efforts. Farm Sanctuary shelters in Watkins Glen, N.Y., and Orland, Calif., provide lifelong care for hundreds of rescued animals, who have become ambassadors for farm animals everywhere by educating visitors about the realities of factory farming.
