Just like the millions of other farmed animals who spend their days suffering in deplorable conditions with no concern given for their well-being, Lucy the sheep had a rough start to her life. As a baby, she was stolen away from her mother and placed on a farm, where her fate seemed sealed: As is customary in the lamb industry, Lucy would more than likely be killed on or before her first birthday. Confined in a small pen, she would never know freedom, friendship or love.

In a twist of fate, however, a kind-hearted animal activist who was visiting the farm noticed that Lucy was in dire straits. The poor little lamb was frail and clearly in urgent need of medical attention. If not for the help of this good Samaritan, who arranged for Lucy to be taken from the farm and brought to a sanctuary, she almost certainly wouldn’t have lasted much longer.

But now, things have totally turned around for Lucy! Thanks to the hard work and selfless dedication of this individual, the sweet sheep got the medical care she needed and is on her way to making a full recovery. She is now spending her days lazing around on cozy blankets and playing with the loving workers at Santuario Igualdad, an animal sanctuary in Chile.

With the knowledge that she is finally in a safe place with people who care about her, Lucy can relax at last. Just look at how peaceful she looks taking a snooze in her adorable pink sweater!


Although Lucy got a happy ending, the sad truth is that most sheep, lambs, cows, and pigs are not as lucky. Just as Lucy was at the beginning, they are subjected to unimaginable cruelty throughout their short lives, all to feed our obsession with meat and dairy.

Fortunately, we can all help change the fate of farmed animals. By embracing a plant-based diet rather than one centered around animal products, we can break the cycle of exploitation and suffering. Another great way to help ensure that these living creatures are treated with compassion is to donate to the work of animal-saving sanctuaries like Santuario Igualdad.

No animal is ever safe in a nation rooted in dominion:
Genesis 9:1-3 “The fear and dread of you shall rest on every animal of the earth, and on every bird of the air, on everything that creeps on the ground, and on all the fish in the sea; into your hand they are delivered. Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you; and just as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything.”

So cute, so dead... Cuteness should not be a criteria for who lives, who dies. But the desperation of those living under the menace of judeo.christian dominion it is one of the few options available to encourage compassion. Unfortunately it does not. Millions of cute dogs are killed every year in the kill shelters of dominion. Billions of cute animals a year are sacrificed to the god of genesis... cute baby lambs as savored for the flesh during Easter and as a symbol of the right to slaughter during Passover. The cute baby lambs frolicking prior too Easter disappear for a feast to celebrate religious values that sanctify slaughter:

“A note to all happy families gathering around tables with a centerpiece of a murdered innocent - enjoy.
Apparently God thought no more of his "only begotten son" than a piece of meat - for, after all, he had his only son tortured and crucified because he was pissed at Adam and Eve and some of their offspring - so - Jesus is now heroically called "the lamb of god" and that\'s ok with most Christians. Kill the human "lamb of god," then eat the human "lamb of god" at communion time while crossing yourself, and then to celebrate Easter, go take a living, breathing, real baby lamb and eat that, too. Good killing and Good Eating.
P.S. If no baby lambs are available at your local market, and your neighbor farmer won\'t sell you a baby lamb, a pig will do.” - name with held
