Q: Why animal liberation?
Mike: Without animal liberation there will never be human liberation. It is the single biggest injustice in the world.
Kayla: I speak out for animals, because animal abuse is the most normalized violence in the world. These animals are amazing individuals and they deserve a life with their families, free from harm. Thousands of animals are dying every second world wide, and I feel like its my moral obligation to do everything I can to save them. I love them too much not to fight for them
Landon: The animals are being treated so cruel and they're living in really bad enviroments. It's just horrible.
Rilee-Paige: Animal liberation because every animal needs our help. Every single animal is dying.
Q: Tell us about your recent rescue of two hens outside of a slaughterhouse.
Group: On July 3, 2017 Organizers from Okeechobee Animal Save, Orlando Animal Save, DxE Orlando, and DxE Pinellas, along with many volunteers, got together for Tampa Animal Save's first Vigil. It was a very successful vigil, and a day full of emotions. We were at Musa Slaughterhouse, in Tampa Fl. When we fist got there we witnessed goats, young and old, being held in a filthy holding pen, along with pigeons, chickens, sheep, and cows. Somehow during the protest, 4 Hens and 1 Rooster made it out of the holding pen, and into the parking lot. We all sat outside the fence trying to get the chickens to come out of the fence to safety. We spent 3 hours in the sun, trying to get these terrified chickens to trust us. They kept running out of the fence, but as soon as we got close to them, they would run back inside. Eventually, we were able to rescue our first girl and took her to safety! She was dehydrated and hungry. Her first snack was a banana and she LOVED it, so we named her Nana! About 20 minutes later, our second girl was liberated. The DxE pinellas organizer, named her Nydia because it means safe place. They are now living a life, free from harm at a sanctuary!
