@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 ❤🙏

@wolfgang2242 is my regular dose of warm fuzzies and jocularity #whywearevegan 💗💗💗😊💗💗💗#whywearevegan 💗💗 Repost from @wolfgang2242 using @RepostRegramApp - OK, I'm going to throw a lot at you here. I went to the chicken swap to rebuild my flock but didn't find any chickens I connected with. Yes, similar to speed dating, I like to connect with my chickens before committing to a long term relationship. Anyway, I have a bad habit of going to the chicken swap and coming home with anything but a chicken (like a pig named Bikini for instance) and this time I came home with the rabbit named Dewayne. (What can I say ,we had a connection.) Dewayne the rabbit and Stuart the rabbit (who I've have had for years) get along fine but they like to engage in some "adult activities" and since Stuart is really old I'm afraid that might give him a heart attack. So, at this point I keep them separated most of the time. Unlike Stuart the rabbit who hardly ever poops when he comes in, Dewayne the rabbit can't seem to stop pooping when he comes in, and that's the long story of why you're looking at a picture of a rabbit wearing a diaper. Hopefully, depending on how Dwayne acclimates to occasionly being inside, we could ditch the diaper later.
#depends

Yes I'm aware rabbits can be litter box trained
Yes he will be neutered
Yes this is just a temporary fix
Yes the idea is for him and stuart to live together, you have to give me a little time.....
To all the rabbit people don't freak out., he's wearing this about an hour a day until he gets neutered within a few weeks.

Precious 💗. Kodiak can use your help and prayers Repost from @boochaces using @RepostRegramApp - Kodiak needs baths more frequently than other puppies due to her urinary incontinence. She leaks, even in her sleep - so it is important to keep an eye on her skin and fur to make sure she does not get too irritated. Her vet appointment went well on Monday but now we have to go see a specialist and a surgeon on April 9th. We do believe she has ectopic ureter which will require an expensive surgery. We are so grateful that her previous human surrendered her to us so we can do everything in our power to help her. 🖤 Wish her luck. ... See MoreSee Less
