Our #vegan Everything Bowl this evening: baked teriyaki-marinated extra-firm sprouted organic tofu (#adjectives 😁) on a bed of organic baby spinach and arugula, organic rainbow quinoa, organic: 🍋 juice, red cabbage, red onion, zucchini, 🥕, red pepper, and homemade lemon-garlic tahini dressing (emphasis on the #lemons). So delicious and plenty left for the rest of the week = perhaps tomorrow we’ll add some (you guessed it) organic 🥑 💗#whywearevegan ... See MoreSee Less

@kindredspiritscarefarm can use your help saving Jenny and her new sentient family. Every $ counts and volunteers are always welcome. #whywearevegan 💗💗💗 #sheep #lambs #ewes #gratitude #vegan #always : Repost from @kindredspiritscarefarm on Instagram: “Little Jenny is 3 days old today. She was born one of triplets to a rescued mama who is having…” using @RepostRegramApp - Little Jenny is 3 days old today. She was born one of triplets to a rescued mama who is having troubles nursing three babies. Little Jenny was not getting any milk and not looking good, but we stepped in and started her on a bottle and today, she is looking great. She is a tiny girl about the size of a shoe, but she has the will to live and we are going to see that she does.

If you are looking for someone who could use your help: Repost from @sharons_sanctuary using @RepostRegramApp - Meet Meshi ❤
Meshi is a mule foal who was found last week as a newborn with her umbilical cord still attached (!) with bite wounds and a severe infection in her leg.
She was rescued and brought to the hospital for care.
Swipe left and you can see how well she's improving after only a week ❣️ keeping the staff on their feet 🏃‍♀️
Please help us with our increasing medical bill at the hospital. You can call the hospital directly +972-3-9688540 (by credit card, bill of Sharon's Sanctuary) or donate by PayPal to Sharonssanctuary1@gmail.com
Thank you❣️🙏


זוהי משי 💞
פרדה שנמצאה בשבוע שעבר, רק נולדה ועם חבל הטבור עדיין מחובר. עליה היו פצעי נשיכה וזיהום קשה ברגל.
היא חולצה ואושפזה בבית החולים לטיפול אינטנסיבי. דפדפו ותראו איך כבר לאחר שבוע אנו רואים שיפור משמעותי, והיא אפילו מריצה כבר את הצוות😄
נודה מאד לעזרה למשי הקטנה בתרומה. ניתן לתרום ישירות לביה״ח באשראי טלפוני 03-9688540 (שרון - להתחיל מחדש)
או בפייפאל, לינק בביו.
תודה ממשי ומכל החברים ❤🙏
