Friends

Just a couple of friends hanging out.

Nearly one and a half million cats are euthanized each year simply for not having a home. #noneedtobreed Those are just the ones we know of that are dumped at animal shelters and reported. Roly Poly was found in an area popular for dumping animals. She was lucky to be found.

Duriann was dumped at an animal shelter which @roostersanctuary works closely with for fighting rescues.

Rabbits have a much lower euthanasia rate in shelters, but their reason for being dumped at shelters is much dire. Cats and dogs are usually dumped for behavior reasons, yet rabbits are dumped simply because people did not want to care for them.

If you would like to see us grow as a sanctuary and as an outreaching voice for the animals; consider visiting, volunteering, donating, or spread the word about us.

1.4 million cats euthanized comes from a study by the Kitten Coalition in 2018.

Rabbit statistics comes from a study by House Rabbit Society in 2012.

Roly Poly Update

Yesterday RolyPoly went to the vet for a check up and vaccines. She’s still as healthy as any kitten except for the control of her bowels and bladder. She’ll be getting some new diapers and continue to get the extra care that we specialize in.

Earlier this year I set a goal to complete 100 or more certifications or continuing education units. This #caturday I surpassed my goal. I’ve now completed every @ASPCApro course that is currently online, 36 FEMA courses, Basic Life Support and first aid from @american_heart , #recovercpr #basiclifesupport from @cornellvet , and the list goes on. Keep educating yourself for the animals, for all of us.

Milliard and Friends

Mill2.jpgMill1.jpg

One year ago this date I drove Millard, Fillmore, Taub, and 30 chickens to @roostersanctuary . Milliard, Fillmore, and Taub came from an organic, free range farm that so many think of as healthy and humane. The truth is all three of these turkeys were immediately taken to our vet for many issues. Each one of them had coccidia and salmonella, which are transmittable to humans. Milliard also had a white blood cell count so high that the doctor believed he had Tuberculosis which is also transmittable to humans.

Last year @darkmountainsanctuary and @roostersanctuary together rescued over 500 animals. This year we have already rescued over 1100 animals. With your help we can do more.

Vist, volunteer, donate, spread the word

Kaporos

Drive up, pick up, go! It’s pretty simple. In fact opening a crate to take just one or two out takes longer than grabbing an entire crate. Sadly to do the most economic damage taking the crate is more of a loss than taking the birds. Example; one crate cost $60-$90, while each bird is worth $3 max and a crate holds 10 to 15 birds. Simple math, take the entire crate full of birds. Win, win for liberation; loss, loss for the exploiters. #kaporos #kapparot #kaparot #religion #brooklyn #vegan #nyc
