Everyday Heroes

Wow!  What a pleasant surprise we had Sunday afternoon, when Anchorman Mitch Jelniker of Denver's ABC station Channel 7 showed up at our gate.

It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon and several of our most dedicated and supportive volunteers had come out to the sanctuary to lend a hand and treat the animals to carrots, chin scratches, and lots-o-lovin.

We soon discovered that Peaceful Prairie Sanctuary had been chosen "Channel 7 Everyday Heroes"!  We proudly accepted a handsome plaque presented by Anchor Man  Mitch Jelniker.  Mitch and his camera man Mike spent a few hours filming the animals and interviewing Joanna Lucas, Amanda Groves, and Michele & Chris.  It was a fantastic day!

Thanks to ALL of our supporters and volunteers, and to Denver's ABC station Channel 7, for recognizing the important and necessary work all of us at Peaceful Prairie Sanctuary do everyday for - and on behalf of - the REAL unsung heroes... Farmed Animals everywhere.

If living ethically is important to you, please remember that there is nothing humane about “humane” animal farming, just as there is nothing ethical or defensible about consuming its products. When confronted with the fundamental injustice inherent in all animal agriculture—a system that is predicated on inflicting massive, intentional and unnecessary suffering and death on billions of sentient individuals—the only ethical response is to strive to end it, by becoming vegan, not to regulate it by supporting “improved” methods of producing dairy, eggs, meat, wool, leather, silk, honey, and other animal products. For more information, please read The Humane Farming Myth. Live vegan and educate others to do the same.
