The majority of farm animals across the world live in squalid conditions and are seen not as living creatures, but as a cheap source of food. As a result, these animals are horribly abused which often results in desperate attempts to escape these institutions and save their skins – often quite literally.
When these animals have outlived their perceived usefulness they are euthanized or abandoned and left to fend for themselves. However, consciousness about the horrible treatment of farm animals has been growing and we have seen a massive increase of rescue organizations that are working to save the animals and provide them with proper homes. One of these organizations is Edgar’s Mission.
When a local man found two tiny goats bleeding and abandoned in an alley, he brought them to Edgar’s Mission where they received their names . . . Ebony and Ivory.
“We named the baby goats Ebony and Ivory, for they serve to remind us all that we can indeed live in perfect harmony,” explains Edgar’s Mission. After Edgar’s staff nursed the pair back to health, they also gave the two young goats some pretty spiffy sweaters.
While Ebony and Ivory are safe and sound, there are millions of animals who are not as fortunate. Go to Edgar’s Mission website and see how you can get involved or learn more about numerous other farm animal rescue projects that working tirelessly to make better lives for abused farm animals.
