Over the weekend, I visited one of the coolest places on the planet: Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary in Poolesville, Maryland. While I was there, I was able to spend lots of time with the adorable sheep, goats, chickens, turkeys, pigs, cows, and horses who call Poplar Spring home, and just in case you can’t tell from the pictures below, the cuteness level of these animals is out of control:
Being in the presence of these awesome and heartbreakingly adorable animals was such a humbling experience, and it reminded me of why I first made the decision to go vegan years ago: because animals are not ours to eat or to abuse in any way.
Now tell me, how cute are these animals?!
Hello! My name is Nina, and I am a musician-in-training, and I play 7 instruments. I am a liberal, an LGBT activist, avid reader, composer, singer, and poi spinner. I am vegan, and a strong supporter of animal rights.
I have always lived in Los Angeles but my family and I went to Mexico for my parents wedding. So we came back to LA. I don't like LA but were here already what can I do unless I move out and find my own housing. I have always liked animals and it was til I was like about 14 when I learned about tests they do on animals and I began to explore animal cruelty because I was interested it in it. I have watched videos that just broke my heart so that's why today I'm doing all I can to not buy anything that has harmed an animal and I'm vegetarian .
