The only difference between these two animals is how we treat them. Choose to show compassion for ALL animals. 🐶❤️🐷

Danny Boy is one of our rescues from Alaska! He loves attention yet often gets so excited when people are around that he gets nippy. It’s not that he’s aggressive, that’s just his way of playing. This is one of many reasons why wolves and wolfdogs don’t make good pets. Fortunately for Danny Boy, he was rescued and brought to LARC where he is able to be himself in an environment that is safe for him and his well trained caretakers.

If @McDonalds paid any attention, they’d notice people are disgusted with their policies and practices. Like these 250 amazing protesters. ✊️ Go to @McDonalds IG and tell them #ImNotLovinIt!
The cruelty behind bacon. Double tap if you believe animals deserve more to life. 💕🐖[via @AnimalEquality]

Alex, one of our senior wolves, had just started living on his own, due to the medications he has to take daily. Jason, one of our newest veteran team members, spends time with him 3-4 times a day feeding Alex hot food, talking with him and taking him for walks. When Jason first arrived at LARC, he had a lot of anxiety and carried a stress ball to help deal with anxiety and stress of day to day life. Now, he has put down his stress ball and picked up a treat bag. He’s one of the first guys up with the animals in the morning and one of the last guys to shut down at night. He’s found a new purpose in something greater than himself. We had originally planned on Jason being a team member and he has grown into a team leader, in a short period of time. His love and commitment to the wolves is tangible and his example is something to be admired.

DO YOU BEAR WITNESS?
Why do we bear witness? Why do we stand outside slaughterhouses? Why do we bother stopping trucks if we are unable to save anyone? What's the point? The answer is simple, really.
We bear witness to acknowledge the lives that are soon to be taken, to document and share their sentience and individuality.
We bear witness to build further conviction within ourselves and our activism.
We bear witness to send a message to the animal harming industry; that we will show up, and we will keep showing up until these facilities of violence and death are shut down, until the innocent are free and we have reached Total Animal Liberation.
Vegans and non-vegans alike, if you haven't, I implore you to attend a slaughterhouse vigil; to meet the victims of your past and present choices, to look them in the eyes and see a glimpse of their suffering, to connect with and feel their soul.... And to say goodbye as they're driven to their death.

Bearing witness …. Why do we do it?
I can sure as hell think of things I would rather do then stand out the front of a slaughterhouse and watch truck after truck of terrified animals being driven to their death.
This morning at Diamond Valley Pork, I bore witness with @melbournepigsave and experienced two trucks full of pigs crammed into trailers, lying in their own waste, terrified, broken and crying out in pain.
I bear witness to tell their stories, to capture their fear in a photo that will without words speak a message of their truth, of their lives and of their inevitable death.
It is far from something I enjoy doing but these stories need to be told, people need to see the industries they support so they can make an informed decision.
