There are several sanctuaries that organise their own compassionate Thanksgiving, and are inviting you to join them! This is an opportunity to celebrate with like-minded people, enjoy some delicious vegan food, and chill out with some rescued animal friends.
Woodstock Farm Sanctuary symbolises Jenny Brown’s dedication and compassion towards farm animals. The sanctuary highlights a concept that seems so obvious, yet is so easily forgotten - life is precious.
We feature videos and pictures of animals from around the world at the top of our pages, which change with each of the seasons.
The Pearl-spotted Owlet
The Pearl-spotted Owlet is a tiny bird with a rounded head and no ear-tufts who lives in Africa, south of the Sahara. The name comes from the two pearl-like spots above the shoulders. This distinctive pattern is often described as “eye-spots” or “false-eyes” and helps the owlet escape predators by appearing larger than it really is.
Right now, the Pearl-spotted owlet is widespread and not threatened by the usual degradation of habitat and deforestation. However, the western populations are less abundant and appear more vulnerable to changes in habitat and food resources. You can help this and other species of owls by planting trees, saving old-growth trees from being cut down, not using chemical treatments on your property, and living vegan.
