Mahatma Gandhi described cows as “a poem of compassion”. Just like cats and dogs, cows are affectionate, intelligent and enjoy human companionship. Cows are gentle creatures who deserve compassion and respect.

Cows rescued from factory farms are enjoying freedom and compassion in nonprofit sanctuaries where volunteers take care of them.

Nima Sanctuary is the first and only of its kind sanctuary in Romania. Here, cows rescued from slaughter live happily and safely. Nima Sanctuary is raising money to buy a pasture where the cows can frolic in green grass and sunny mountain breeze.

A square meter of pasture costs 3.4 US Dollars or 3 Euros. If you want to help, please share the sanctuary’s fundraiser. Find out more about Nima Sanctuary on their page.

Here are a few images and less known facts about cows!

Cows With Names Give More Milk

Alison Jones 3 months ago

Dairy cows make way more milk than their calves need, and unlike all other mammals, they will produce no matter what once they give birth. Not milking them is painful and can lead to mastitis and death. This has been done over thousands of years of selective breeding; nothing can change that now.

Cow Tipping Is A Myth

Cow Tipping Is A Myth

Cows are wary of strangers approaching, so it’s nearly impossible to catch a cow in a state of such bliss that she will allow a stranger close enough to touch her.

I had to look that up. Even if it was really a thing it would be mean. I would hate being woken up from a sleep, just because ppl wanted to laugh at me.
