Cruelty and Compassion are Both Universal

Animal Sanctuaries Demonstrate This

Our use and abuse of farmed animals is universal — wherever you are, whatever country you visit. ⁠

👉 pigs, turkeys, chickens, and cattle brought into this world only to be raised to be killed for human consumption⁠

👉 goats and cows bred to be milk machines, only to be killed when they’re no longer productive⁠

👉 donkeys and horses bred for use — often sold to be slaughtered for human consumption⁠

Such were the stories of the animals we met in Italy. ⁠

⁠BUT as much as cruelty and desensitization is universal, so is COMPASSION AND ADVOCACY. ❤️

⁠We include visits to animal sanctuaries on all of our Joyful Vegan Trips (where possible) because not only is it meaningful to connect with animals, it’s also so meaningful to meet good people around the world doing vital work to protect animals:

👉 changing laws⁠

👉 rescuing animals⁠

👉 raising awareness⁠

👉 providing sanctuary⁠

These are some of the incredible souls we met on our recent journey to Italy (and who you will meet on our Destination Tuscany 2024 and our Northern Italy 2024 trips). ⁠

⁠Compassion is universal. ⁠
