Tribe Animal Sanctuary Scotland (TASS).
This month, we will be sponsoring Tribe Animal Sanctuary Scotland (TASS) who are a small vegan charity in the Clyde Valley that opened earlier this year. Tribe is home to rescued Highland coos, pigs, sheep, hens, turkeys, goats, dogs and cats. Most of their resident animals were originally destined for someone's dinner plate, but now they are safe and can live out their natural life with the dignity, respect and love they deserve. Their mission is to highlight the cruel social construct that views some animals as 'food animals', – which makes it somehow acceptable to treat them with contempt, cruelty and a complete absence of compassion – and 'pets', who are showered with love and affection and given the best of medical and other care. They treat all their animals as 'pets', and hope that people can see how fun, intelligent and individual each of their residents is. Their work on social media concentrates on showing the animals in their environment, and the hope is that if people get to know them, they will think twice about eating them. From the cute chirruping noise the turkeys make to the pigs enjoying a belly rub, from hens strutting around full of business to the coos enjoying a slice of toast, they want people to enjoy watching the animals as much as we do, to share the videos and to talk about them to meat eating friends and family, and who knows, maybe this will help someone on their journey to veganism – we are sure it will! The lovely animals at Tribe are wonderful vegan activists just by being themselves, and Tribe Sanctuary hope to give them a voice.
