Can’t even pretend to be as badass as these dudes. Post-9/11 U.S veterans fighting the human garbage who shamelessly kill Africa’s wildlife. Look up how many rhinos we have left. They function entirely on donations. They’re worth helping.

2. Rancho Relaxo (@boochaces):
Horses, goats, pigs, cows, sheep. Bottom of the barrel animals we always forget, except when we’re hungry. Please help Caitlin help them. 

3. Nonhuman animal Rights Project (@nonhuman.rights.project):
Unlike any other. Our view of animals outside our kind is ultimately rooted, and daily endorsed, by illegitimate law. With science and bewildering logic, they’re litigating across the globe to grant legal personhood to elephants, whales, chimps and dolphins from captivity and miserable death. Their eloquence is beautiful and their approach is not only worthy of respect, and 20 of your dollars, but absolutely vital for change to occur.

4. Safe Haven Farm Sanctuary (@safehavenfarmsanctuary)
A refuge for the otherwise f*cked. +56 Billion farm animals are killed a year, when they truly (see below, see me) do not need to be.

The alkalizing effect of fruits and vegetables can grant vegans a bone mineral density equal to that of omnivores, while consuming LESS protein+calcium. By taking in more potassium from weak organic acids (e.g. prunes, citrus, cabbage, broccoli, onions), the calcium in a vegan’s bones is spared from having to neutralize the acidifying action of sulfate-containing proteins in meat. In other words, assuming sensible dietary habits, minor deficiencies of protein and calcium are compensated for.
