Hopefield Animal Sanctuary & Vegan Cafe

Yesterday, I visited Hopefield Animal Sanctuary in Brentwood, Essex, England. The sanctuary has actually been open since 1983, but it wasn't on my list of sanctuaries to visit before, due to the cafe there not being vegan - which seemed incredibly confusing to me.

4 Days Vegan in Denver, Colorado, USA

Bearing Witness with Essex Pig Save – Why Being Vegan Isn’t Enough

In 2016, I took the step from vegan to vegan activist. It was a new year's resolution of mine to become more involved in animal rights.
