Hope For The Animals.
Last week for the hector giveaway, I posed the question:
What is your hope for the animals of this Earth?
As per usual with your giveaway responses, I was simply not prepared for how beautifully you would all answer this. I am beyond thankful to be existing among so many budding activists - whether you know it or not, you are all animal advocates for supporting and contributing to this blog.
I chose two winners tonight, and I've decided to have them begin and end the photograph series of my latest trip to the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary. On Sunday, I took my sister and brother to the sanctuary to experience formerly farmed animals firsthand. Below is the beauty and joy of that experience.
My hope for the animals? That each and every one of them, cows, pigs, deer, spiders and ladybugs, are treated with the love and respect that we grant our own pets. - Melanie S.

My hope for the animals of this earth is that some way, somehow, they all come to know that there are people who love them and are on their side.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: The Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary has my heart in a major way. I absolutely love this place and will miss it terribly when I make the move to Los Angeles. Please consider sponsoring an animal or donating to - or VISITING! - this unbelievably wonderful place. Many thanks to Rebecca Moore for our amazing tour of the grounds on Sunday, and for more information, please visit www.woodstocksanctuary.org.
