The animals that humans typically regard as nothing more than a food source – such as chickens, goats, cows, and pigs – are seldom acknowledged as the loving, intelligent, and often hilarious beings they truly are. Just like any other sentient, living being, they love to cuddle, play, and spend time with their families and loved ones. Whenever they are given the opportunity to express their true selves – in the company of humans with open minds and hearts – there is no end to the wonders they can bring into our lives.
The kind people behind Santuario Igualdad Interspecie sanctuary, located in El Monte, Chile, have posted an adorable photo to their Facebook page that captures exactly what this amazing experience looks like. The image captures two goat residents as they enjoy a bit of cuddle time!
Could anyone doubt that these two babies deserve to be loved just as much as any other creature on the planet?
Alicia and Lucas, described by their carers as “two energetic, healthy and playful baby goats” look peaceful and content in the arms of someone who truly cares for them. This is the kind of life that farmed animals deserve to enjoy. The fact that so many goats on this planet are forced to endure exploitation and abuse – when every single of them is capable of giving and receiving the same love as these two – is truly tragic. However, we can make a difference by ending our part in their exploitation and allowing them the chance to express who they truly are.
