Month: August 2019



There’s a small group of people who live at the edge of the Amazonia within Ecuador. They occasionally go into Quito and rescue street dogs who are sick or have been neglected. The dogs and people live mutually from the abundance that the Amazonia provides for them. These people live simply and live to care for animals.

Their home is currently in dire danger. The animals they care for are in need of new homes, just as the people are.

Imagine living your life simply, off the land, with no worries of debt, desires, or “civilized” needs and order. While few, there are still people in this world who exist outside of the social construct of civilization. These people need our help not through donation or volunteering, but through us awakening and ultimately helping ourselves.

Photo taken by me in the late summer of 2011. This day we were able to capture and care for over 30 malnourished dogs in less than an hour.



If you have an ethical sanctuary you have mice, or rats. If you have mice or rats you have snakes. It’s good to be prepared by knowing how to identify, capture, and release without doing harm. @roostersanctuary and I caught this little one and drove down the road for a safe release.

Tomorrow, Vegan Market, Brooklyn

Brooklyn, come out and support a sanctuary that not only rescued 100 birds from kaporos rituals in Brooklyn, but we also transported, and still to this day provide care for them @roostersanctuary. We’ll be @vgnmkt tomorrow from noon to 5pm. It’s all ages, so no excuse to bring the kids and enjoy some good food, good people, and a good cause.

Since 2004 we have been rescuing animals from the 5 boroughs and beyond. Everything from tortoises to chickens, cats and dogs.

In 2010 we organized what was the largest open rescue in the five boroughs. More than 230 former fighting roosters were taken from the streets of the Bronx and transported to sanctuaries in Ohio, Texas, New York, Florida…

This year alone we have rescued over 1,000 animals from bankrupt farms, fighting busts, and many other situations of exploitation and neglect.

It’s not just non human animals we care for as we have also fed organic, vegan meals to over 300 people in need, just this year.

We are driven by compassion and dedication. We are fueled by your support.
