Two great ways to help animals on Giving Tuesday

Garth is one of the newest (and youngest!) animals at The Happy Herd Farm Sancturary. He’s someone, not something. That’s why VHS promotes a plant-based diet and cruelty-free living.


Help make life better for animals now and in the future

On November 28, the Vancouver Humane Society (VHS) and The Happy Herd are partnering for Giving Tuesday to raise $10,000 to help rescued farmed animals and to fight factory farming by promoting cruelty-free living. Please help us to show that there can be a better future for animals, where kindness wins out over cruelty.

At The Happy Herd Farm Sanctuary in Aldergrove, B.C., animals are treated with compassion, not as the exploitable commodities we see on industrialized farms.  When animals are seen as valued, sentient beings it’s clear each one is  “someone, not something.” So shouldn’t we treat them accordingly?

That’s the question that underpins VHS’s campaigns for cruelty-free living. VHS volunteers are out on the streets and at events distributing our Go Veg booklet to thousands of people who want to live more compassionately.  More people are joining our Go Veg Campaign and our Meatless Monday program every day and we’re helping schools, hospitals and businesses increase their offering of humane, sustainable and healthy plant-based dishes. Every year our bus ads prod the consciences of Vancouverites, asking why we treat some animals as friends and others as food.  We are changing hearts and minds.

This Giving Tuesday you can make a real difference to the lives of animals by supporting a great partnership between the Vancouver Humane Society and The Happy Herd Farm Sanctuary.

Make a donation (select the “Giving Tuesday” fund) in support of this effort and/or shop at the participating Giving Tuesday businesses, who will be donating proceeds toward the campaign. Donations will be split between both organizations AND will be matched up to a total of $2,500, thanks to the generosity of animal advocates Lisa Kramer and Mark Kamstra!
