Summary
Farm Sanctuary is an organization that rescues discarded living animals from stockyards, slaughterhouses and factory farms, provides shelters for them, and advocates for humane animal treatment. In this impassioned book, Baur paints an appealing picture of these shelters and the animals that live there far from the brutality of industrial farming, which he describes in detail. He makes a strong case that meat eaters have an ethical responsibility to ensure that the animals they eat have not been abused
