    “And those who dismiss love for our fellow creatures as mere sentimentality overlook a good and important part of our humanity. But it takes nothing away from a human to be kind to an animal. And it is actually within us to grant them a happy life and a long one.” – Joaquin Phoenix | EARTHLINGS

    I’ve known Erin since high school and she is a true friend to all animals, and a very nice person with a huge heart. Thanks for taking the time to showcase her farm, she deserves all the support she can get.
