Amazing Animal Rescues

The year of 2011 saw many heartwarming animal rescues, from a kitten rescued from a pipe on Thanksgiving day, to the oil-drenched penguins in New Zealand saved and set free. Puppies arrived in Washington D.C. after being rescued from a puppy mill and a curious baby seal wandered into a woman’s apartment in New Zealand to chill out for a bit before returning to the wild. Unlike some pigs in China, most animals can’t make their own escape, so there are organizations like Farm Sanctuary who have worked to add more rescue stories to the list this year. Farm Sanctuary is a group that focuses on combating the abuses of factory farming, including fights to save battery hens stuffed in 16-inch-wide cages, sows kept in cages that are too small for them to turn around and cows that are artificially impregnated throughout their reproductive life.The group has some great stories to tell from the past year about saving farm animals from similar fates.
