I’m so excited to share a little bit about our visit to The Happy Herd Farm Sanctuary! Irek and I have been wanting to visit for months now, so last Saturday we headed to Aldergrove to meet all of the beautiful animals at Happy Herd! 🙂
Happy Herd is the first farm animal sanctuary on the West Coast- they officially opened in 2014 and have since touched the lives of so many animals (and humans alike). The sanctuary is the most beautiful, peaceful, loving place I’ve been… I was in heaven!
We got to meet all of the different animals that call Happy Herd home, including: Baby the Donkey, Larry and Moe- the resident turkeys, Lucy the pig, Sparky the Cow… and many more!
You can tell the animals are showered with love and kindness, as they themselves are gentle, friendly, and peaceful… except the white goat… don’t pet the white goat! hehe 😉 but on a serious note, JillyBean the white goat was an SPCA seizure. It took Stephen and Diane a couple of years to show her that humans can be loving and kind! Jillybean has since come around, and now sleeps outside on her bed, right under Stephen and Diane’s window! How adorable is that?! <3
As most of you know, Irek and I have been vegan for the last couple of years, and it really was the best decision we ever made. More and more people are waking up, and realizing that eating animal products is unnecessary. It’s not good for your health, your heart, or the planet. We can thrive *EASILY* on plant-based diets, and this type of lifestyle can add years to your life! <3
I encourage anyone in the Vancouver area to visit Happy Herd! You’ll realize right away that these animals feel love, and deserve to be free and happy. I know one day we will live in a world where factory farming (and all other cruel practices towards our animal friends) will be a thing of the past, and we can move forward and radiate love and kindness to all creatures!
Thank you so much to Diane and Stephen for having us. Your humble nature, and generosity is beyond inspiring. I will open my own farm animal sanctuary one day, and save as many babies as I can… The more love we give, the more we receive.
Thanks so much for reading! I hope you enjoyed the photos of all the beautiful animals from Happy Herd! 🙂
