It’s that time of year when we’re all able to look at the world with a little more love in our hearts, and we believe that anyone with a platform (and with social media, that’s everyone) should use it for good and find opportunities to speak up and be a voice for the voiceless. That’s why our team at Mullein & Sparrow wanted to find a special way to give back this holiday season. We have been celebrating our own version of the ‘12 Days’ by adopting a sweet animal from Farm Sanctuary each day. As a vegan and cruelty-free beauty brand and all-around animal lovers, this is a cause near and dear to our hearts and we couldn’t think of a better organization to give to.
Farm Sanctuary is the nation’s largest and most effective farm animal rescue and protection organization with shelters located in Watkins Glen, NY; Northern California (Orland); and the Los Angeles area. The work they do is so much more than just day-to-day animal care. They are helping inspire real change in the way society views and treats farm animals and we are lucky to help out in any way we can. As Brooklyn dwellers, we can’t take in animals ourselves, but by ‘adopting’ these animals, we are sponsoring their monthly feed, shelter, and veterinary care costs.
We’re so happy that these sweet animals are able to celebrate the holidays freely at Farm Sanctuary. We hope that by sharing these warrior animals’ stories will inspire others to sponsor their own which is why we are offering a $20 gift card to anyone who signs up to sponsor animals and mentions Mullein & Sparrow in the comment section of their application. To adopt your own, visit Farm Sanctuary here.
Meet A Few of Our Special Adoptees Below:
Frank is a runaway bull who took charge of his destiny and escaped slaughter in Queens, NY. Though he was quickly recaptured, his story made headlines and Tracey and Jon Stewart stepped in to save the day, eventually bringing him to Farm Sanctuary. Frank reminds us that every animal has a story and desires a loving home.
A Rooster named Peanut? As you can see, nothing is ordinary about Peanut the Northern California Rooster turned Farm Sanctuary favorite. Peanut was donated by a former roommate who felt it was time to find Peanut his own space. He now happily clucks with other roosters and hens.
Besides being the cutest piglet in town, Cameron couldn’t always hop around. Raised on a pig farm in Louisville Kentucky, it was soon discovered that he suffered from a hernia and bruised right leg. A young parishioner named Kaitlin requested to care for Cameron to restore him back to health. She later discovered Farm Sanctuary to be the best place for Cameron’s health and happiness.
