Episode 65 – Kindness Is Founding Farm Sanctuary

Episode 65 – Kindness Is Founding Farm Sanctuary

By Anitha Rao Robinson

Children's author and conservationist Anitha Rao-Robinson invites listeners to join her as she creates a community of kindness. She speaks with children and young adults as they share their incredible stories of kindness towards animals. the environment, and people.

Anitha was over-the-moon star struck to chat with the incomparable Gene Baur. Gene is the founder of the Farm Sanctuary, an animal advocate, author and so much more. He has been on shows such as The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and Larry King Live, and now The Kindness Is Everything podcast!

Gene talks about his incredible journey from doing commercials to promote companies like McDonalds and KFC, to advocating for the shutdown of factory farms. Animals are forced to endure tortuous conditions at factory farms and these places supply companies like McDonalds and KFC.

Despite all the unkind treatment to animals Gene has witnessed, he is still optimistic about the future of animal welfare. He shares how he’s helped bring in legislation to end such cruel practices as gestational crates.

He also shares the amazing rescue story of Hilda the sheep. She was Farm Sanctuary’s first rescue.

As a thank you to Gene for sharing his story, Anitha donated to Farm Sanctuary. This sanctuary provides shelter to more than 400 rescued cows, pigs, turkeys and other farm animals. Farm Sanctuary helps animals used and abused by the animal agriculture industry through rescue, education and advocacy.

Anitha is looking forward to personally visiting the sanctuary this summer. To learn more about Farm Sanctuary, please check out their website or follow them on IG.
