FARM SANCTUARY & NATIONAL MILL DOG RESCUE
Meet the recipients of our Purpose Bag donations for February, 2015!
Farm Sanctuary is an amazing organization working to end the suffering of animals all over the world. Their mission, from their website:
"To protect farm animals from cruelty, inspire change in the way society views and treats farm animals, and promote compassionate vegan living."
As vegans and vegetarians ourselves, we can really get behind this organization. From education on factory farming, animal testing, and other animal rights issues, to hands on farms where people can interact with rescued farm animals, Farm Sanctuary is fighting for a more compassionate world and a balanced relationship between humans and animals.
Visit the Farm Sanctuary website for more info.

National Mill Dog Rescue totally blows our hearts open! Dog rescue is something very close to our hearts at Temple Ro, and National Mill Dog Rescue is really putting in work to help end the suffering of dogs bred in puppy mills. The NMDR mission, from their website:
"NMDR’s mission is to RESCUE, REHABILITATE and RE-HOME discarded breeding dogs and to educate the general public about the cruel realities of the commercial dog breeding industry."
Inspired by adopting a puppy mill mama dog named Lily, Theresa Strader vowed to make a change and founded NMDR in 2007. Since then they have rescued, rehabilitated, and rehomed over 9,000 mill dogs, and that number is climbing daily!
Visit the NMDR website to read Lily's story and learn more about this compassionate organization.
