VEGAN KITCHEN – No Mutton Stew – Thick Rich Winter essential Broths – CREDIT CRUNCH Cooking

VEGAN KITCHEN – No Mutton Stew – Thick Rich Winter essential Broths – CREDIT CRUNCH Cooking

Credit Crunch cooking is all about healthy ethical meals at Penny Collection prices – Why pay more ? Why pay for death ? In the world of “for the many not the few”,  being financially and socially oppressed as people, doesn’t lend well to then oppressing animals to death just to eat, there is a cheaper better way that the corporate meat sausage just ain’t going to tell you about because they make money out of you buying shit, eating shit then feeling like shit because of it.

There’s a endless supply of corporate financed celebrity vegan this and that out there, its a media favorite, where the basics of the vegan revolution are completely sidelined over planet based health kicks and designer plant leather.

None of that Media Hype is about NOT being part of the wheels of oppression (from fodder for the battlefield, to the factory floor to the slaughterhouse to the NHS waiting list).

The way in which society treats the 99% is all about subservience, rules and the rule book, school army government church, is all designed to make you happy for your lot and your lot is not and never will a lot.

When the punk sell out blew out the candle of revolution in the early eighties the last Album they could have cashed in on would not have been “Anarchy in the UK” but instead “Apathy in the UK”.

That the nation is so apathetic and so lost in the “Cult of the Selfie” to have handed over their Future, their time, how they spend their lives, what they eat, who they see, what they believe make or do and even fight for or against to a unholy trinity of Media Government and Industry without even questioning what they are intending to do and why is frankly mind blowing.

Most UK industry bosses have earned more since the start of the new year (4 days) than the average worker will earn in the entire year ?And still you work, vote go to school, toe the line, support the system rather than become socially engaged for change.

  • You can have your say in your future but only if you give your say away in a vote to a complete stranger who only his / her interest at heart
  • You can eat whatever you like but only if it comes from a list of food brands that we have plastered into your thoughts trough advertising from birth
  • You can have children but only if you give them away form age 4 to 18 so that they can be desenitised undermined and channeled into believing and behaving how the state wants them to be
  • You can pursue activities and develop yourself as adults but only if you work and are separated 5 out of 7 days from any meaningful bonds, love or family

Vegan Anarchism is about change. Without (r)evolution you are all just fodder for the battlefield and the factory floor supporting the slaughterhouse and expanding the NHS waiting list – Wake Up get engaged and find out about real change know as Vegan Permaculture, Sustainability and the Resource based Economy.

Ever wondered about another way of thinking ? Get back to basics, if every step , wherever possible, a human takes does not result in the oppression of some other being won’t things start improving for everyone ? Start with what you eat , what you wear and take it from to collaborating with others doing the same. From there everything else starts to fall into place.

So that is where we start today, what we have on offer is the Vegan no Mutton Stew, “no mutton” because its rich thick and “meaty”. In order to steer clear of the wheel of oppression start with no making any other being die so that you can eat.

Pretty simple eh ? Let’s Cook and for the rest of it “Get Stuffed”

Vegan “no mutton” stew with bread balls (like dumplings)

The Bread Balls:

This is a simple flour, sat , sugar, water mix with a rising agent, bicarb, baking powder or yeast. mix it all to a knead-able dough and separate in to balls  place in a muffin or Yorkshire pudding tray and bake for 25 mins

The Stew:

10 potatoes
250floz of caramalised onions (precook these)
I tin chick peas and aquafaba
125g large chunk dehydrated soya (indian shop)
10 chopped carrots
10 broad bean or other large bean runners
20g palm oil free vegan butter
I carrier bag size of chard or cabbage leaf finely cut
Slice of palm oil free vegan cheese
I whole leek
Two whole broccoli steams
3 tablespoon of corinander, tumeric
1 tablespoon of garlic powder, garam masala
250floz palm oil free gravy

Boil turn boil about an hour , add bread balls , serve.

That’s all there is to it. It takes a while to cook down, use that time to think on the politics of why we eat free from oppression and cruelty and you will be on the way to Social engagement and real change.

EPIPHANY CAKE – We 3 Kings of ORIENT are – Ethical enlightenment in the very best of VEGAN bakes

EPIPHANY CAKE – We 3 Kings of ORIENT are – Ethical enlightenment in the very best of VEGAN bakes

This weekend sees the Annual Epiphany Festival, celebrated mostly in Catholic home and nations from France to the North African Coast, This is a bake off to get stuck into..

When it comes to amazing “Divine” religious bake offs, France really did perfect the Epiphany Cake (Galette des Rois. The Galette is like the ultimate super size me stuffed butter cookie, much more satisfying moorish and superior to the fluffy “Christmas tree light” cakes of the south, Spain and Mediterranean (Roscon de Reyes).

The only down side is that the traditional Galette has been a graveyard for the fattiest animal by products, and, as such, out of reach for the Ethical.

UNTIL NOW

Baking has moved on, we have dropped the unethical animal cruelty, and finally we can dispense with the last of satanic ingredients being “Palm Oil”.

Yes we Veganised it.

There is no excuse for Animal Abuse, Christianity, in it’s orthodox form, lends strongly to Vegan Ethics, the following links explore the relationship between the two:

https://freefromharm.org/veganism/christian-basis-veganism/

https://www.peta.org/living/food/vegan-bible-quotes/

http://www.adaptt.org/animal-rights/the-bible-jesus-and-veganism.html

http://advocacy.britannica.com/blog/advocacy/2011/06/the-christian-basis-for-animal-welfare-and-vegetarianism/

There are quite a few mysteries and secrets around the Epiphany Cake and Celebration that have just been steam rolled over and stolen by zealous inquisition prone Catholics, and in doing so have lost all that was / is Divine about the cake.

When John Henry Hopkins Jr. penned the hymn “We three kings” in 1857, he picked up on more truth that he could have imagined, the key is in the lyric”we three kings of Orient are.

The Orient up until the late 1800’s was classed as the land as far west as Morocco and to the east, India, and to a lesser extent China. With a dumbing down of language and studies toward the end of the 19th Century, and the Geographical Americanization of the known world, the old Orient was displaced to the Levant as the primary subject of Orientalist research.

This decay continued to further hem the borders of the Orient to East Asia, Southeast Asia, and eastern Central Asia by the mid-20th century,  history books of our Modern Western scholars generally considered “the Orient” as just the the Middle East or the Far East.

The shifting of borders leads to a whole re-visualization of our 3 kings as no longer oriental and instead Arabic.

Roll back History and follow the trail of these oriental 3 kings and a whole new journey opens on he road to religious historical truth, one covered beautifully in the BBC Documentary “Jesus was a Buddhist Monk”.

Combine the findings of this documentary with Knight Lomas The Second Messiah along with The Unknown Life of Jesus Christ and you need up wanting to book tickets fro a trail to the final burial-place of Jesus Christ in Srinagar, Kashmir. (known to the locals as Rozabal, meaning the ‘Honoured Tomb’)

  • Where historical literal fact pinpoints that the Ascension story didn’t exist for over 200 yeas after events on Calvary hill
  • Where a 1st Century agitator executed on Roman record for sedition has been re-branded in Rome by the Emperor Constantine (AD 306–337 as the undisputed resurrected Son of God.
  • Where three sages traveled from the Orient looking for the Ascending enlightened being, a Dalai Lama and of wealthy earthly standing, and who’s life teaching have more in relation with eastern tradition and belief than Judea

Questions while baking the Divine start to create questions upon questions. We hope that the content of this post and he Questions thereon will create in your thought a genuine “Epiphany” in the true meaning of the word:  “an intuitive grasp of reality,” “an illuminating discovery, realization, disclosure, or insight,” or simply “a revealing scene or moment.” in short an epiphany is “a moment of sudden or great revelation that usually changes you in some way.”

Anyway Away with 200 years of controversial truths, its time to get the baking done:

What do you need to create and “Epiphany” ?

Firstly you need one  feve / pebble / ceramic figure :

Whats all this about ?

https://www.stopoverconnections.com/blog/the-tradition-of-the-galette-des-rois-in-france/

Its a 2 step recipe – FIRST the insides….

125g of Vegan Palm oil free Butter – yep you can get it in Sainsbury’s https://www.livekindly.co/naturli-launches-vegan-palm-oil-free-spreadable-butter-sainsburys/ 

100g of Caster Sugar – its finer than the regular stuff, easier and cleaner to work with

1 tin of Aquafaba (you get that in a tin of chickpeas in water  – drain the water and put it in a blender until it looks like egg white (obviously its a replacement for eggs….)

125g of ground almonds

250g of flour

1 feve

2 tbsp of Almond Extract

Step 1 Step by Step:

Mix together the Vegan Butter and Sugar then  add the Aquafaba mix again then finally add the Flour and Almonds Mix and the extract and mix well. Place the mixture on a sheet of clingfilm wrapping the mixture in to disc / circle shape. Put it on a plate  and freeze for 30 minutes.

Its a 2 step recipe – SECOND the outsides….

250g of strong plain flour

1 tsp of salt

250g of that lovely vegan palm oil free butter again

150ml of COLD water, not warm not tepid (COLD as your ex’s heart…)

Sift flour and salt in to bowl. Chop the butter into chunks and add to the bowl and rub in loosely still being able to see bits of the butter though in the mixture.

Make a well in the mixture in the mixing bowl and add in 2/3 of the cold water. Mix until you have a firm rough dough adding water if needed. Cover with a dry cling film and put it in the fridge for 20 minutes.

Insides in the freezer and outsides in the fridge – got it ?

20 minutes later – Turn out the outsides onto a floured board and knead and roll gently into the form of a rectangle. It doesn’t have to be perfect but try to do some justice to divine geometry at least.

Roll in one direction only until 3 times the width of 20cm x 30cm. Keep the sides straight and even , don’t overwork leaving a marbled effect (the butter streaks through the layers NOT worked all the way through)

Fold the top third down to the centre then the bottom third up over that. Give the dough a quarter turn to left or right then roll to 3 times the length, fold as before  put back in cling film for another 20 minutes then its ready to roll out and cut as below

Just follow the pictures:

That’s two identical layers of outsides. Take out the insides from the freezer, push your feve into the frozen mixture and place between the outsides and press together the edges with your fingers then with a sharpe knife score a pattern on the top from the centre out in slow circular curve (like the start of a spiral) to the edge of the top edge with a design with a fork.

Decorate with Almond flakes and then it is ready for baking.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 -25 minutes minimum then check every 5 until done (some fan assisted ovens bake close to 25 minutes and non fan more like 45 minutes) remove from oven , leave to stand to cool for 45 minutes dress with the Kings Crown and serve.

Overall verdict..

Though the tradition of becoming the Queen/King (based on who finds the feve and therefore takes the crown and commands) leans to Royalist or elitist social pyramid models (correctly lack of values rather than values as they are based on devaluation of the majority) of class division and servitude, this also opens the subject is open to discussion with family and leads to understanding the evolution of the “idea” of equality which fits snugly with how we live today. This is further supported by reproducing this classic “untouchable”recipe as a vegan cruelty free cake. The subject of equality is tied intrinsically to Species-ism, and can be captured in the language of modern political spin by the Corbynist slogan “for the many not the few”(The Many actually refers to ALL beings not just the human voting public).

Enjoy the history, Bring in meaning to the “game” and enjoy the cake.

Its cruelty free and it’s damn good. This Vegan Palm oil free Version  of this cake really delivers, there is no difference in process or output, apart from the ethics. no extra effort to source ingredients either.

Its “religion”,

its “politics”,

its “history”,

its “truth and lies”,

its also great fun – tuck in. ENJOY.

https://www.gofundme.com/get-michael-green-to-the-168hr-cube-intimes-square

Folks, It’s a New Year, whats the New Story ? You know about Anonymous right ? Though do you know about Anonymous evolution groups? Not to be confused with cyber terrorists, hactivist, and anarchist organizations, Evolution movements deal with awareness.

Anonymous for the Voiceless (AV) have been on the rise since 2016. They hold an abolitionist stance on animal exploitation and use Truth content to challenge Animal Agriculture Media Marketing subversion.

Philip McCulloch-Downs

https://www.gofundme.com/get-michael-green-to-the-168hr-cube-intimes-square

With the largest ever AV event in History rolling out this summer in Times Square NY we need to get funding to send one of our colleagues, friend and veteran street activist out to cover the event live from New York.

AV events are taking the world by storm, though coverage, frustratingly, still remains sidelined by corporate media channels.

Social Media carries the stories though often these rotate mainly around the supporting networks.

We can run the live feed and coverage through need a reliable source out on the ground to cover the event.

YOUR ACTIVIST NEEDS YOU ! NOW !

https://www.gofundme.com/get-michael-green-to-the-168hr-cube-intimes-square

Michael Green is a veteran of street activism, Awareness and Public Engagement and familiar face attending and supporting hundred’s of events day in, day out.

The Cube of Truth is an awareness event that Michael has engaged, supported and attended in many global locations run by Anonymous for the Voiceless.

Michael Green at AV:

Mainstream Media is simply not a reflection of reality of what is happening on the ground, and social Media does not have the scope and spread to communicate Truth events without restriction within community guidelines (i.e. corporate censorship) on their respective platforms.

We would like to see Michael on the ground to pick up a full and thorough report on the event in it’s entirety including the wide scope of public interest, engagement, outreach, and overall response to this form of street activism.

This event is due to run for a week with more global participation than ever before seen for this form of event. We need to be the media eye, to ensure this type of event is made available on all channels.

We need your support to get him there for the event in it’s entirety.

The event has its own Charity funding direct through the Anonymous for the Voiceless site for those that are supporting the event. Though independent (of AV team) activists will need to fund themselves to attend.

For those that recognize the importance of independent investigative media, urban journalism, and live feeds on challenging the arts, culture, and social political events; this is your opportunity to support and follow this event live, and unedited.

This kind of work can only be done with your support – We have a shortfall in costs to cover the event for the whole week, please help, close the shortfall.

Philip McCulloch-Downs – Sagra del Seitan 2018 XI Edizione – BIG ART INTERNATIONAL

002

When we are talking BIG art, We are talking art  beamed onto a massive screen creating an immersive multimedia experience, exposing the 6,000+  attendees to the hidden victims of animal agriculture.
The BIG art show featured many Philip McCulloch-Downs’ incredibly detailed and moving pieces,  two of the many pieces that were in the show are pictured in the above –  ‘The forgotten’ and ‘Motherhood’.

The event was extremely visually engaging centered by the immersive multimedia event called “Made for the Animals 2.0”, with works by many vegan artists as well as Philip who  give voice to the animal debate.

The themes  of veganism and anti-speciesism were also supported by a rich cultural program packed with conferences and meetings.

When talking of the piece “the forgotten” Philip expressed “That one little life is now going to be alive and visible forever.  I’m so made up by this – it’s very moving.”

The Sagra del Seitan 2018 XI Edizione Vegan Festival ran in Florence, Italy Saturday September 22 and 23, at the OBI Hall in Florence.

In addition to the Sagra del Seitan, Philips schedule just gets busier and busier, He has been involved in the The Art of Compassion Project appearing in Beijing, Dublin,  Luxembourg and Florence!

Here is a look at The Art of Compassion Team at the International Animal Rights Conference in Luxembourg 6th – 9th September 2018.

For World Farmed Animal Day, Philip and Queen V seamlessly combined their creative work in the video for “What Hell Is like”. A day to feel proud to be associated with the activists of the world:

Those who speak up for the voiceless, against the vast, brutal farming corporations of the world.

Those who reveal hidden truths, to begin to change the majority opinion that meat and or dairy are essential to human life.

Those who do whatever they can to be compassionate – to all life, human and non-human.

“What hell is like” courtesy of Queen V

We look forward to the up and coming event the Liberation Arts Festival!. The hardest thing in Philip’s schedule is to keep up with his schedule.

Phillip is open for Commission work, or to find out more about his portfolio , projects and events please feel free to contact him directly through his facebook or merchandise link detailed below :

Artists Statement:

What does Animal Liberation mean to you? Educating the younger generation. Giving them the necessary facts and figures, as well as the encouragement, to help them realise that they can so easily change this world if they choose to, and thereby help us ALL evolve out of our current state of inertia and ignorance.
My personal part in the Animal Liberation Movement means connecting and empathising with the creatures that I paint, treating them with a dignity that they are denied by our farmers. I try to bear witness to their character, their suffering and their individuality, and by removing any barriers between ‘us’ and ‘them’ allow viewers to feel an empathy, which will hopefully lead to an understanding that changes hearts and minds.

NO MONEY NO HONEY – The “Supersize me” Bee project in every store near YOU

NO MONEY NO HONEY – The “Supersize me” Bee project in every store near YOU

“As a child there were wild hives in the forest, they were started mostly with drilled long bore holes in cut off blocks tied nailed to the trees, sometimes a hollowed branches bundle with indents around  half a foot long for the bees to lay larvae on,….. the wild hives the forest..those things, those days are gone…”

pollinating-bee-1494518889O0p

“After a while you would notice the start of hives around the boxes and bundles, over a year or two they would swell to full active vibrant communities, The honey overs used to drip from the bottoms, down the tree trunks
Kids would run their fingers up the trunks, wildlife would feed on the overs on the ground and low trunks, the fruit trees around the hives would start fruiting, there would be an abundance of wild flowers, colourful heads and long breezy stems. Later i realised that conservationists had seeded these. The bees would pollinate and be undisturbed, this was there gift, pollination……Nothing else was taken, ever..”

Since my last trip back to canada i can say i have never seen free forest undisturbed hives anywhere in the eu or us. All i see is the commercial operation and its the same everywhere. The absolute enslavement of an entire race !

Mainstream Media has rolled out a string of “investigations” into whats killing the bees, ROTTEN on netflix reported 37 million bee deaths a year in the continental USA . If that happened to cows or people there would be outcry.

The truth of honey and the death of the bees revolve around two essential areas

The Honey theft –  Does an Olympian train on McDonalds ? Does a RaceHorse run on Bacon and Eggs ? we all know that diet is 80% of  peak performance, every Bee in it’s natural habitat is an Olympian, thee are no couch potato bees or shift workers skipping off on tea breaks and shirking, they are Spartans they are tireless and their diet has been perfected of a millenia to deliver.

The pesticides and pollution – Healthy body / Healthy Mind ? the synthetic sugar addled unfit struggling worker bee just can’t operate efficiently or in increasing numbers even find the way home in a fog of pesticides and pollution. the biggest consumer crop of pesticides is grain and protein crop for animal feeds,. to cut to the chase , if you are eating meat as well as Honey, you are double daming the Bees with your eating preferences.

The situation we have since 1972 (the start of the destruction of the Honey Bee with the global roll out of Glucose Fructose Corn Syrup) is likable to a  a big brother type sitcom (the hive) where our fitness guru’s are watched and followed going shopping each day with their hard earned cash and opening their fridge in the morning and finding it all stolen ,empty or stacked full of junk food , look around , some furniture is out of place, one or two house members are concussed (smoked, neuro nano toxins) not sure if they will pull through, a window us smashed (removal damage)

What is nasty, insidious and speciest is the act of theft of honey. Honey has been stolen for over 4000 year by humans, obsessed with consuming its purported health busting properties. Yet in the last 300 years, the hive industry has become the norm and taking the overs has become wide scale removing of 2/3 of the honey hive to fund profit.

The survival of one one the oldest most fascinating species on earth starts to diminish as their health is affected by a sustained replacement diet of synthetic sugar water as Honey is stolen for Human consumption.

inside-the-bee-hive

“We steal its daylight robbery for sure, does it hurt them, not immediately but by the time winters through you see them dead in the thousands. But that’s the business we are in”  

ROTTEN on NETFLIX https://www.netflix.com/gb/title/80146284

honey-bee

bees pollinate crops for everyone but taking their honey and replacing it with synthetic sugar syrups weakens the immune system and they get wiped out by pesticides.

The bees also don’t wax off the honeycombs if sugar syrups because they don’t like it, the honey is their balanced nutritional diet they work hard to make it, humans steal it with a wide range of lies about profits and bee rent and replace it with junk food. Ever see “SUPERSIZEME” how sick the guy gets ?

As for the so called eco bee hives, they also take the wax for beeswax and use it in lip balms. Open a factory hive and you find 1/3 of commercial hives have sick bees. Honey is only one side of the problem, poor health also means a poor immune system and that is the deal closer for the Honey Bee in our modern pesticide filled world.

without a strong die and the additional work of have to replace stolen supplies the ever enslaved and overworked Bee also has to fight off toxins pollution and pesticides. It is blatantly obvious and common knowledge that a healthy body can resist infection fatigue and disease better than an unhealthy one. Humanity though the Honey Theft has already damaged the Bees health, next humans lay the gauntlet of poisoned air for the bee to struggle through.

So called eco bee keeping companies report to “save the bees” by planting an additional 5,000 flowers a hive and advertising this is ethical, let’s do the maths though, 5000 flowers well that’s enough pollen for 100 bees who each produce 1/6 of a teaspoon.. how much honey do you spread on your bread ? how many lifetimes work stolen ?.

The reality is that 50’000 flowers should be planted per hive minimum.  Even when the flowers are planted, the Honey those bees make is eco or commercial, stolen.

296-1217853994p02a bee-in-ice-plant-flower bee-on-flower-1381370576ZPN honey-bee-on-purple-spiderwort

In short the ECO trend sold under so called Health outfits like Holland and Barrett (such as the Manuka Honey gold mine)  say they are ethical for the bees, but we already know from the numbers and the theft of the end product that it doesn’t ring true, no amount of Media Marketing can normalise theft and slavery in the Honey trade.

Open debate between Bee Keepers and Honey producers and the Vegan community become heated , Bee Keepers wave off criticism stating people are not educated enough to know whats really going on. This post clarifies the “education” and exposes the lies.  The truth is that they are profiteering off bees and the bees will suffer and die as a result of Human intervention, not be saved by it.

There’s lots of ways to save bees, wild hives and the planting of bee food flowers are the good steps, the elephant in the room and the frankly obvious is to stop consuming their honey.

Vegan activists have turned round hives that are dying from sugar syrup replacement by actually buying jars if honey and literally putting it back into hives.

Those who set up wild hives on their land and allow the natural development of Honey Bees unmolested will see their flowers and fruits do better year in year.

Is there any instance where consuming Honey can be seen as Ethical ?

It will never be Vegan as its an animal Product, Ethical possibly only in one instance  – The only collection of honey that could ever be called ethical is on over spill where the honey drips out of a wild hive to the ground, though what people take from this means less for wildlife and this again needs to be put into perspective, globalised society offers Humans more access to sugar replacements and alternatives that any other species. A human an simply go to aisle 22 instead of aisle 23 and buy ” agave nectar” instead of Honey at the same bottle price. A racoon looking for something sweet on the forest floor cannot…

Where do I get a HONEY alternative that rocks ? : https://www.groovyfood.co.uk/products/light-amber-mild-agave-nectar

The standard theft rate from a commercial hive when all the rows are full, bee producers say a minimum of 3 rows a hive to last winter  should keep the hive alive yet i this was the case then we would not see death totals in the 40 millions every year and widespread colony collapse.

The minimum for a commercial hive is 5 rows. The honey producers take 60 percent , they leave 3 rows and replace the stolen rows of Honey with synthetic sugars. As previously put – Its theft , dailybreakin’s, ransacking and theft.

VIDEO FEED COURTESY OF https://www.facebook.com/IamCeciltoo/videos/1054389714705237/

No Vegan will support the use of Honey, will not consume it or stock it. We have not seen one ethical Honey operation globally ever. Wild hives we see, but only where people are land conservationists or have “forgotten 2 about them, we would like to encourage people to set up wild hives. I foyu want to get started on wild hive program in box us and we will send you a how to guide to getting started,

If you really want honey for nothing and have inherited an active former commercial  hive  then do it ONLY with an overspill tray under the hive.

Don’t take the rows, it stresses then and makes them work harder

Don’t smoke them it stresses then and damages them (honey producers say it doesn’t so try it on yourself and see how that goes)

Don’t replace their highly nutritious immune system boosting diet for junk food just because “you can”

Don’t be a thief. Bees own us nothing. Mother Nature doesn’t charge “Bee Rent” The bees are sacred and those who argue for “Bee Rent” support the honey industry, support the defilement of mother natures divine for your own profit and oral masturbation

pollination of our crops is being effected by the honey stealing and promoting community And when that species dies we all die.

No Vegan ever makes “Money” from getting you to stop eating Honey, Every Honey producer makes money from you when YOU ignore the truth , YOUR responsibility for our collective future and believe the marketing speech.

Its a heath thing ? You want to be healthy ?

Get on a Raw Vegan Diet and buy the book HOW NOT TO DIE , it’s really that simple.

In looking to be part of building a more enlightened world where humans remember their dignity and show compassion and love to all others, regardless of sex, race, age, gender, disability or species; the Retreat finds the continued exploitation, abuse, bullying, violence against and murder of animals in today’s society totally degrading and unacceptable and work tirelessly to help the voiceless make it past the last chance.

There are over 1250 animals at the retreat, the founders and volunteers rescue these animals from abuse, neglect and privation and provide them with a forever home. A fully Vegan sanctuary, this is the last stop in their life line for without rescue centres, there is no tomorrow for these animals.

Winter is on them and at 700 pounds a week to cover feed let alone general supplies, the Retreat needs to widen its net of support. With that in mind FISHINABOX have joined the fight to “FEED THEM ALL”. We need you to do the same.

Some people wonder why we help animals in need, personally I wonder why THEY wonder. There is nothing so rewarding, healing and meaningful as to mend a broken life, to restore happiness where fear have leached in to the bones of a sentient being due to heinous acts of cruelty, all in all this as much to do with Human Wrongs as it is to do with Animal Rights.

Be part of the change. Support the rescue and provide us with what we need to ensure a healthy, happy and long life.
