Awakened

Clinton Vernieu, Brisbane, Australia Now that I am awake, I cannot go back to sleep. Awakened from a culturally induced slumber, I have made a pledge to myself—but, more important, I have taken an oath for other animals. I am now their caregiver, witness and companion—I will never be able to justify their exploitation. This […] Read more

Garden Therapy

“You’ll be happy to hear that I’m still vegan and I don’t have any plans to change this for the rest of my life… Making the transition was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made and I hope I can inspire people along my journey the same way you inspired me when I visited […] Read more

Ironically, however, due to an unexpected turn of events, the fence that we built to keep the cows on the upper part of the property is now being […] Read more

Uday Bhobe, Mumbai, India It was New Year’s Day, 2013, a month after my 53rd birthday. On a whim, I made a resolution to go vegan, or so I thought; I now know it was merely a resolution to try a plant-based diet. (I make New Year’s resolutions every year. They usually last a couple […] Read more

Sunday

This past Sunday, five days into the month of July, five beautiful beings departed Magical Creatures of Hamakua, and traveled to Kohala to become the Magical Creatures of VeganLand. As one might expect, convincing these dairy rescues to leave the safety of their sanctuary was no easy task. Upon arrival though, it didn’t take long […] Read more

On the morning of Saturday, July 4th, one day before we were scheduled to welcome our five rescued cows to VeganLand, we arrived to discover that eight of the condemned cows who graze on our neighbor’s land had somehow made their way onto our property. Our first thought was that we must have left a […] Read more
