”Blackberry Creek Farm Animal Sanctuary was founded in November of 2014 by two middle school teachers who wanted to pair their love of animals and their concern for students to create a more compassionate world.

Friendships born between humans and animals encourage people to think of them as individuals with feelings and personalities, and the empathy born from these relationships creates kindness and goodwill toward all creatures and all people, something this world could use a great deal more of.”

In one of the largest animal rescues in US history, Cayce Mell, Jason Tracy, and a team of volunteers race against time to remove countless birds trapped in crushed metal cages and transport them to safety at their sanctuary. Working themselves to exhaustion, Jason and Cayce struggle to cope with overwhelming emotions.

Veganism: A Truth Whose Time Has Come

Blog. “Veganism is an ethical position; a way of life showing basic respect to all animals; opposing exploitation, objectification, enslavement, sexual violation (breeding / inseminating), and the violent assault of animals. Vegans don’t buy animal-tested products, nor products or practices that exploit animals for clothing, food, entertainment, toiletries, etc. Vegan living is a social justice issue that holds far-reaching sociological and environmental benefits. I am a vegan for 40 years. We can live vegan, so we should. All animals, because they are conscious and feeling, can suffer, and want to live. Therefor, they deserve the birth-right not to be violently assaulted and used like they are a thing, rather than the someone they truly are.”

The Importance of Wild-Animal Suffering

“The number of wild animals vastly exceeds that of animals on factory farms, in laboratories, or kept as pets. Therefore, animal advocates should consider focusing their efforts to raise concern about the suffering that occurs in the natural environment. While in theory this could involve trying directly to engineer more humane ecological systems, in practice I think activists should concentrate on promoting the meme of caring about wild animals to other activists, academics, and other sympathetic groups. “

The Ghosts In Our Machine

Film: “With the exception of our companion animals and the wild and stray species within our urban environments, we experience animals daily only as the food, clothing, animal tested goods and entertainment we make of them. This moral dilemma is largely hidden from our view. THE GHOSTS IN OUR MACHINE illuminates the lives of individual animals living within and rescued from the machine of our modern world. Through the heart and photographic lens of animal rights photojournalist Jo-Anne McArthur, audiences become intimately familiar with a cast of non-human animals. From undercover investigations to joyful rescue missions, in North America and in Europe, each photograph and story is a window into global animal industries: Food, Fashion, Entertainment and Research. THE GHOSTS IN OUR MACHINE charts McArthur’s efforts to bring wider attention to a topic that most of humankind strives hard to avoid. Are non-human animals property to be owned and used, or are they sentient beings deserving of rights?”

The Gentle Barn

“We live in a concrete, violent, noisy, high tech, busy world. We have lost our connection to animals, to nature, and most of all, to ourselves. Animals are living lives of torment from beginning to end, their cries are unheard, their pain is unseen, and they are suffering. The rate of heart disease, cancer, obesity, and diabetes has never been higher. The rain forests are being destroyed, we are in a global drought, we are polluting our air, and species go extinct every day. But by having reverence for all life and by reconnecting with Mother Earth we each can change all that. At The Gentle Barn we stand up for the innocent, and we help animals and children alike remember that they matter. We open people’s hearts to the connections with nature. We open people’s minds to what is happening around us. And we inspire people to be an integral part of the solution. Through the stories and interactions with our animals, we can raise future generations to have reverence for all life, protect our planet, live good healthy, happy lives, and we will all be closer to having peace on earth!”

The Artist as Activist

“Filmmaker James LaVeck explains why Harriet Beecher Stowe was a masterful social justice artist, and how her approach to writing her famous antislavery novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin inspired the making of the documentary film Peaceable Kingdom – The Journey Home. The imaginations of the filmmakers were sparked by the history of US social justice movements, anecdotes of Harriet Beecher Stowe’s life, and unforgettable personal experiences with individual animals at a sanctuary. Following Stowe’s example, they focused on highlighting the individuality and family bonds of those being harmed, in this case, the billions of animals being exploited every day on industrial and family farms.”

We have been providing rehabilitation and exceptional care for abused, neglected, and otherwise discarded animals ever since. Our rescue efforts have grown organically to over 200 animal residents.”

Sled Dog Action Coalition

“Committed to improving the lives of Iditarod sled dogs and providing truthful information about their treatment…The Iditarod is a dog sled race that begins the first Saturday in March each year in Alaska. In this race mushers (dog sled drivers) force their dogs to run 1,000 miles from Anchorage to Nome in 8 to 16 days over a grueling terrain. This is the approximate distance between New York City and Miami. Mushers press their dogs to run at ever increasing speeds, so that the dogs get little rest or sleep. Mitch Seavey holds the speed record of 8 days, 3 hours, 40 minutes and 13 seconds. This is less than half the time it took to run the first Iditarod race. No dog wants to run so far or so fast, or can do it without enduring great suffering. At times, Iditarod has been described as an exciting contest of man against nature. These descriptions do not tell us about the dogs’ untold suffering. Dog deaths and injuries are common in the Iditarod, and when they are not racing, the dogs live under inhumane conditions.”

Rowdy Girl Sanctuary

“Rowdy Girl Sanctuary is the evolution of a very special story of two native Texans—one a multi-generational cattle rancher and former hunter; the other one, his wife, an ex-rodeo lover, and leather cowboy boot collector. Their story has turned into a mission to build an organization that rescues farm animals; and to be good stewards of their care forever in a sanctuary determined to become a state of the art animal care facility, and a plant based/environmental resource education center. Rowdy Girl Sanctuary will inspire other ranchers to experience a paradigm shift, and help them move from participating in the cruelty of factory farming to living out compassion towards the animals whose lives usually end in brutal death. This is Rowdy Girl Sanctuary’s greatest goal. “

Running for Good

“From Executive Producer James Cromwell and award-winning director Keegan Kuhn (Cowspiracy, What The Health) comes RUNNING FOR GOOD, the feature-length sports documentary narrated by Rich Roll (Finding Ultra), following world record marathon runner Fiona Oakes in her attempt not only to set a new global record in endurance racing, but to compete in the “toughest footrace on earth,” the Marathon Des Sables, a 250km race through the Sahara Desert. Fiona Oakes has made a name for herself as a unique endurance runner. She is the fastest woman in the world to run a marathon on all seven continents, and the north pole, in both cumulative and elapsed time. Fiona’s achievements are made even more astounding due to the fact that she was told at age 14 that she would never walk properly, let alone ever run. She would undergo more than 17 radical knee surgeries which ultimately led to having her entire right kneecap removed. The process was agonizing, the rehab worse, the records she’s gone on to set even more astounding. With overcoming her own adversity, Fiona’s true drive to achieve incredible feats of speed and human endurance are motivated by a deep desire to raise awareness for the plight of animals. Her achievements help fund a 450+ animal sanctuary that she takes care of every day. “

Rain Without Thunder: The Ideology of the Animal Rights Movement

Book: “Are “animal welfare” supporters indistinguishable from the animal exploiters they oppose? Do reformist measures reaffirm the underlying principles that make animal exploitation possible in the first place? In this provocative book, Gary L. Francione argues that the modern animal rights movement has become indistinguishable from a century-old concern with the welfare of animals that in no way prevents them from being exploited. Francione maintains that advocating humane treatment of animals retains a sense of them as instrumental to human ends. When they are considered dispensable property, he says, they are left fundamentally without “rights.” Until the seventies, Francione claims, this was the paradigm within which the Animal Rights Movement operated, as demonstrated by laws such as the Federal Humane Slaughter Act of 1958. In this wide-ranging book, Francione takes the reader through the philosophical and intellectual debates surrounding animal welfare to make clear the difference between animal rights and animal welfare. Through case studies such as campaigns against animal shelters, animal laboratories, and the wearing of fur, Francione demonstrates the selectiveness and confusion inherent in reformist programs that target fur, for example, but leave wool and leather alone. The solution to this dilemma, Francione argues, is not in a liberal position that espouses the humane treatment of animals, but in a more radical acceptance of the fundamental inalienability of animal rights.”

New Zealand Companion Animal Council

“Throughout New Zealand there are many individuals, organisations and official bodies that are actively concerned both with the welfare and control of companion animals. The diverse nature of their philosophy and operational modus operandi creates a need for communication and the sharing of ideas so that collectively, and by consensus, each and every one of them can contribute to the improvement of the welfare of companion animals in their areas of activity. It was this ideology that prompted the Auckland Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) to initiate the formation of a forum which would bring together the many and varied animal groups in an open meeting for an exchange of views and ideas. The gathering in 1990 was named the Companion Animal Workshop, and it has been an annual event ever since. As the workshops grew in importance, and the intensity of the discussions developed into meaningful welfare concerns, it became apparent that the participants craved a structure whereby the resolutions of the meetings could be more actively pursued and topics raised could be further advanced. As a result the New Zealand Companion Animal Council (NZCAC) was established in February 1996, and has since become a respected national organisation representing the amalgam of a diverse range of animal groups.”

We do not “triage” birds or spend more money on large species than small. We only euthanize a bird when s/he is suffering without the possibility of recovery. We provide hospice care for terminally ill birds who are not suffering.”
