Big V Sanctuary, France
The BIG V SANCTUARY's vision is to create a peaceful world for all living beings, built on justice and respect, regardless of species. They rescue farmed animals, offering them care, love and peace at the sanctuary, while treating them with dignity and respect. They nurse them back to health after abuse and neglect, in some cases finding foster homes where appropriate. They also offer sanctuary for companion animals, enabling them to recover from mistreatment, and then find safe, loving foster homes, where they can spend the rest of their lives. Big V's aim is to allow each individual to live out a long and fulfilling life within a safe environment, while experiencing care and compassion for their needs; to treat them as we would wish to be treated, and for them to be pain free and calm when they reach the end of their lives. They offer an environment that allows people to connect with the animals and recognise them as sentient individuals who deserve to be treated with respect. They advocate animal rights within all aspects of life and also offer the chance for guests to eat with them at the sanctuary. They hope to open a little restaurant where people can enjoy delicious, plant-based foods, and their goal is to advance veganism and encourage others to appreciate that all life as beautiful. Like The Sanctuary Angels, Big V are active animal advocates fighting for animal rights in conjunction with other social justice movements.
THE SANCTUARY ANGELS sent £250 to Big V Sanctuary in January 2018.
