Description

Happy Hooves Farm Sanctuary is a not-for-profit farm sanctuary located in Gidgegannup, Western Australia. We currently provide a forever home with lots of love and care to over 200 rescued animals.

Why do farmed animals need rescuing?

In Australia so called “production” animals are excluded from the protection of animal welfare legislation.  Sadly they are often forced to endure a life of total misery, be it in factory farms or utterly confined spaces; most of the time barely able to move. In addition to this, many are subjected to horrid acts of cruelty that for a domesticated animal such as a cat or dog would be illegal, and the perpetrators prosecuted. These animals live without sunshine, without freedom, without the ability to socialise, without hope. As the so called “higher being”, humans have decided that some animals are our ‘friends’ and other animals are simply ‘food’. What we need to understand, is that ALL animals have exactly the same capacity to feel pain, to suffer, to feel fear, to feel joy and the same desire to live a full life. We hope to show at our sanctuary, that it can be different, the world can change. Compassion and kindness makes a huge difference to every living creature.
