Awesome update = pass it on 💕🙏🏻👏#whywearevegan Repost from Rancho Relaxo using @RepostRegramApp - 52 hours old!!! Sorry for all of the mommy/baby updates but I’m personally so relieved that both are doing so well after the ordeal they went through in the snow on Sunday. Lucinda loves her baby so damn much. She won’t stop licking her face. The baby’s head is always moist because of it. Haha. Lucinda is the most attentive mother. I am beyond proud of her. Baby girl still needs a name. We have a few ideas. What do you all think her name should be?! P.S. The thought of them being together forever is so heartwarming. Yay! P.P.S. Go join Patreon for more photos of these two! Click the link in @hispees bio to do so. ... See MoreSee Less

If you’re in the area and looking for a fellow sentient being to share your home with and care for, please reach out to help Destiny #whywearevegan Repost from @humanesocietyofhuronvalley using @RepostRegramApp - Do you believe in Destiny?
.
After spending 15 years with her person, Destiny thought she knew what the future held. Food always in her dish. Sunlight in the window. A snooze whenever and wherever she wanted. And a nice person who loved her and would guide her, even though she couldn’t see out of one eye.
.
When that person died, Destiny’s world was flipped upside down.
.
She came to us right before Christmas. Her left eye had painfully dislocated, so we did surgery to alleviate the physical pain. But Destiny’s grief still exists.
.
Do you need some healing, too? Or did you resolve this year to be a better person— someone who would give a 15-year-old one-eyed cat a loving home? Could she be your Destiny?

Thank you Universe for aligning stars of all kinds and perfect timing! If you’re looking to support kindness consider this organization is hard working caring souls and the sentient beings they rescue and care for. ❤️💕💗👏🙏🏻#whywearevegan Repost from @boochaces using @RepostRegramApp - Yesterday, during the snowstorm, @hispees ventured out to the cow pasture to feed when he noticed Lucinda was no where to be found. Our 4 cows have 15 acres to themselves, so it’s not totally out of the ordinary when you can’t see one of them right away. Len started getting nervous after walking around inside the enclosure. He suddenly heard Lucinda’s cries for help. She was all the way in the very back of the field. When Len walked up to her, he immediately noticed the little baby on the ground. So fresh and new that she was steaming and she had melted the snow around her. Len called me hysterical. I ran from the front barns all the way to the back of the cow pasture. We ended up lifting the baby onto the back of the Polaris and drove to one of the big shelters. Lucinda followed. So many farmers say that dairy cows don’t care about their young. Really? Because Lucinda bolted over to us after we relocated her infant. She also called out to us so we would help her baby in the first place. We added thick straw to the ground and put a gate across the front so they stayed put within the shelter. For 4 hours, we dried the baby off, tried to get her blood circulating, eventually forced her to stand, even milked Lucinda to force feed colostrum. It was so stressful for all of us. I had no idea if this baby was going to be OK. The snow made everything worse. We don’t have running water across the street so we had to walk full buckets approximately a half mile each way numerous times, back and forth. Len and I were barely able to get out of bed this morning from the pains in our muscles. BUT... this is nothing compared to what Lucinda and her baby went through. We always try to put things into perspective in situations like this one. We are still waiting on Lucinda’s bloodwork results to come back to tell us if she’s pregnant but I guess we don’t need those anymore because yes, she WAS p ... See MoreSee Less

If Stormy touches your heart, please help them heal this little one and please repost to others who you feel would be able and willing to help this sweet being #whywearevegan Repost from @amaanimalrescue using @RepostRegramApp - Poor Stormy couldn’t catch a break. First, the worst prolapse that doctors have ever seen, then multiple surgeries- all failed. Then a Colopexy surgery, during which doctors discovered signs of trauma that caused Stormy’s colon to change into a very abnormal S shape. But the kitty didn’t give up. He is still fighting and if you’d like to support Stormy, please help us cover his medical bills, which you can view by visiting https://www.gofundme.com/stormy-needs-a-lifesaving-surgery or inquire via DM for the link or PayPal amaanimalrescue@gmail.com or Venmo@AMA-1. 💔PLEASE REPOST💔 ...

If you need someone to love, here’s your opportunity. Please care and share 🐼’s need with anyone you know who could be his future forever family. #whywearevegan Repost from @amaanimalrescue using @RepostRegramApp - Someone contacted us regarding a tiny little kitten, just a few days old, crawling around all by himself... Unfortunately, the founder wasn’t able to help or bring him to us, so the kitten was to be left there if we didn’t do something ASAP. We rushed to the location that was given to us, and luckily we were able to find the baby exactly where we were told he’d be. As soon as we saw this little angel, we named him Panda ( he definitely looks like one). It’s never a sure answer if newborn kittens will make it without their mom, but we will do everything possible to help him get through it. Please send positive thoughts to Panda! ❤️ #amaanimalrescue #teamama #rescue #adoptdontshop #cats #catsagram #kitten #savealife #positivity #share #love ... See MoreSee Less
