Goat, Sheep and Chicken Bring Joy to Nursing Homes Residents

Usually it is dogs or cats that are brought to people who are sick, suffered abuse or are in nursing homes, because of the healing emotional effect these animals have on them. However, farmed animals also can help people feel happy for a moment and forget about their problems. The group of “kindness crusaders” out of Edgar’s Mission farm animal sanctuary in Victoria, Australia, takes rescued animals to nursing homes and residents love it!

Please visit Rescued farmed animals bring joy to nursing home residents (photos).

We, humans, wrongly assign categories to animals based on their use to us (pet, livestock, entertainment, clothing, experimentation) and our treatment to them is greatly affected on how we view them. God’s farmed animals, contrary to people’s beliefs, are no different than those animals that we call “pets” and if we looked at them for who they really are, we’d never think of abusing or killing them for food.
