Snooters Farm Sanctuary

Today Cody and I took a little road trip out to Snooters Farm Animal Sanctuary to spend time with some very lucky animals.

What are you looking at?

In 2001, Susan Morris and her husband purchased a hobby farm and started off with Potbellied pigs and have since made forever homes for very large Yorkshire pigs, 2 sheep, 2 horses, 2 disgarded male calfs (from a dairy mom) cats, dogs, several peacocks, a parrot, and chickens.

Susan and her husband both work full-time to fund their sanctuary, they have an amazing property and the animals are well taken care of, we are sure it is not always easy for them, but the love for these sweet intelligent animals keeps them going.

650 million animals are slaughtered annually in Canada, and 9 billion animals are slaughtered every year in the U.S. alone, and the conditions in which they live and die are deplorable.

The suffering that they go through is astonishing.

Animals do suffer as much as we do.

Our hearts aren’t so heavy when we see that there are people out there that are conscious of that suffering and want to change things for other sentient beings.

Compassion is so important.

We look forward to visiting other animal sanctuaries during our travels.

Snooters takes donations on their website through paypal if you are feeling generous and would like to help sustain a few giant pigs, 2 sweet calfs, gorgeous peacocks, gentle sheep, adorable pot bellied pigs, 2 strong horses, several lovely hens, cats, dogs, and a parrot!

Many thanks to Susan for taking the time to show us around her amazing cruelty free home, and for all of the work you are doing to help these beautiful animals.

    delightful pics guys… such a good idea to include this in your website and bring awareness to others about how much we need to respect ALL animals on this planet… not just ourselves.

      Hey Mishelle,

      The animals were amazing! The calfs loved to be pet, as well as the sheep.
      The pigs were great as well, so cute! Did you know pigs are fourth in intelligence? It goes Human, Ape, Dolphin, Pig. I wonder sometimes about the human 😉

      We had such a great time there, and afterwards we went to a nice little pub in town and had delicious veggie burgers!
